It followed our way for sev'ral days
Slowly drew closer, hot on our trails
We didn't know 'till Co-Captain Hayes
commanded to strike all of the sails
Then ev'ry crew mate saw who's behind
A ship of the Navy, but it was maligned
Before they could fire, our cannons spoke
With a loud thunder and a pile of smoke
The cannon ball flew and did not miss
Some hit the masts and others the hull
They fired back but a pity was this
Each of their shots in the end was null
Still they didn't heave to and steered the course
We awaited them with drawn weapons of course
They would never board our ship, our home
But end in a grave beneath the sea's foame
The ships adjoined, we're ready to board
The enemy ship within no time.
"Who kills Chenbeard gets a reward",
The bold navy captain's voice did chime.
We laughed in return: "Try if you can!"
And boarded their ship, a fierce battle began
The soldiers fought bravely, I confess
Still in this battle they had no success
Even their captain did join the fight
Sadly, fallacious pride blinded him
Still he's urging his man despite
The fact that their situation was grim.
"Surrender now or all yer men die!"
Captain Chenbeard warned the stubborn navy guy.
He didn't listen, convinced he could still win.
Even after a blade ran through his skin.
With their leader dead, the soldiers gave in
And finally the battle could end.
Gone were bloodshed and battle's din.
To take prisoners we did not intend
So we let them go, but not for free.
All of their weapons we demanded as fee.
Without resistance they did as they're told
We sailed on, the Sangue-Padre ahold.
