lyrics

I sing my songs and bide my time
Making up some stupid rhymes
And next time you are drunk on wine
I’ll toss you in the salty brine

We roll on the waves and you take what you see
You and your crew of cutthroats and thieves
You shouldn’t have taken my lover and me
‘Cause soon you’ll be dead, and we will be free

I sing my songs and bide my time
Watching as you chew a lime
I hope you choke upon the rind
And speechless, die a helpless mime

We roll on the waves and you take what you see
You and your crew of cutthroats and thieves
You shouldn’t have taken my lover and me
‘Cause soon you’ll be dead, and we will be free

I sing my songs and bide my time
Plot your just, deserved demise
As clouds descend, I know it’s time
To make you pay for all your crimes

In this black, torrential squall
Your drunken men won’t hear your call
I seize a spar and take a stance
You draw your blade, so starts our dance

We roll on the waves and you take what you see
You and your crew of cutthroats and thieves
You shouldn’t have taken my lover and me
‘Cause soon you’ll be dead, and we will be free

We roll on the waves and you take what you see
You and your crew of cutthroats and thieves
You shouldn’t have taken my lover and me...
‘Cause now you reside in the depths of the sea
