lyrics

Lyrics:

CAESAR & THE CREW:
Poor land lubber cut his legs
Go on, go on lubber
At a tavern binged with limey dregs
Go on, lubber, go
All the seamen laughed, you lubber flea
Go on, go on lubber
You’re not a man ‘till you been to sea.
Go on, lubber, go

BONNET
Know that by these presents,
Major Stede Bonnet
Of Bridgetown does make constitute and approve my dear wife,
Mary Allamby Bonnet
True and lawful Attorney for myself,
Granting unto her full power to do
And perform all she sees necessary to be
Done in and about the Bridgetown estate
As fully as I might if personally present.

CAESAR & THE CREW:
So poor land lubber laid his fear
Go on, go on lubber
‘n shipped out proud a buccaneer
Go on, lubber, go
But the pirates laughed, you lubber shrew
Go on, go on lubber
Sweet trade is ours but not for you
Go on, lubber, go

BONNET
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal
This fifth day of August,
In the year of one thousand seven hundred and seventeen.

CAESAR & THE CREW:
So overboard they threw him lee
Go on, go on lubber
Where he sank with the fishes at bottom o’ the sea
Go on, lubber, go
