Dark Lady

Dark Lady published on

A fierce one-eyed man named Baron LaBonne
A meaner pirate had never been known
And he sailed on the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And high on the mast the skull and bones flew
Fleet and swift was the Dark Lady

And every night the Baron would drink a toast
He’d say, “Here’s to my lovely lady host!
My one true love…”
“Hear, hear!” the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

A rich Spanish galleon was spotted one night
The Dark Lady’s crew prepared for the fight
Clash of swords…No Spaniard survived it
Except for the maiden with dark eyes so bold
Found in the hull with the jewels and the gold
LaBonne laughed and took her for ransom

And ever night the Baron would drink a toast
He’d say, “Here’s to my lovely lady host!
My one true love…”
“Hear, hear!” the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

The girl Carlotta was a beauty quite rare
With each passing night LaBonne couldn’t bear
His empty bed. He brought her to it.
The Baron soon found he felt more than desire
His love for her grew and his soul filled with fire
He proclaimed that they would marry.

That night the Baron drank with jubilee
And said, “Here’s to my lovely bride to be!
My one true love…”
“Hear, hear!” the crew replied
And the Dark Lady cried.

The following night a storm brewed at sea
The Dark Lady saw her chance to be free
Of her rival, the beauty Carlotta
The ship steered herself to the heart of the gale
Where a wave swept the maiden out over the rail
Sweet revenge on an unfaithful lover.

That night the Lady drank a toast
And said, “Here’s to your lovely lady host!
Your one true love…”
No voices replied
And the Dark Lady smiled.

And now any night when a storm fills the sky
They say that a ghost ship sails in its eye
Fleet and swift is the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And high on the mast the skull and bones flew
While the captain gazes out to sea.

And every night the Baron must drink a toast
He says, “Here’s to our lovely lady host!
My one true love…”
“Hear, hear,” the ghost crew replies
And the Dark Lady smiles.
