Letter of Marque

Letter of Marque published on

Captain Drake was a pirate wicked and wise
He committed no crimes and he never told lies
The first privateer that you ever have seen
A true legal pirate, and so said the Queen
And he smiled like a shark with his letter of marque [x2]

Haul and tow and away we go
WIth a bucket of blood and a yo heave ho
Leave your foes a fathom below
Leave your foes a fathom below

Drake plundered every ship he saw
And feared no noose nor hangman’s law
For when it came time to save some face
He said it did all for her Grace
And he smiled like a shark with his letter of marque [x2]

Chorus

Pillage and burn was the battle call
If they’re not English take it all
There was no evil thing that Drake wouldn’t dare
So long as the Crown got a nice fat share
And he smiled like a shark with his letter of marque [x2]

Chorus

Here’s a toast to death and piracy
And spices, jewels and gold what’s free
With booty in your chest and blood on your sword
It’s good to be a pirate when it’s all above board
And smile like a shark with your letter of marque [x2]

Chorus
