lyrics

Lyrics:

FROM THE CROW’S NEST:
Ahoy! Ahoy!
Ship on the port side!

QUARTERMASTER:
What colors, sailor?

FROM THE CROW’S NEST:
Spanish, sir. A prize in the offing!

QUARTERMASTER:
Captain, off the port, a Spanish Man o’War
What’s your order?
What’s your order, Captain?
Ahoy, Captain!

BONNET:
Guns ready. Take her!
We’ll take her!

QUARTERMASTER:
She’s twenty, maybe thirty guns.
We’re only six.
You think the odds are with us, Captain?

BONNET:
I say...
I say...
We’ll take her by surprise and on to Nassau for supplies
Guns ready!

QUARTERMASTER:
You think the odds are with us, Captain?

BONNET:
I say...
I say...
Fire at will!

QUARTERMASTER:
Clear the deck and stations
Fire a broadside, men of the Revenge!
