lyrics

Once I was a sailor
True to king and country was I
Roaming the world on the fine sloop Ranger
On water surrounded by sky

Trusting in my crew
Fearless men both strong and true
The captain was a vain man
And he knew not what to do

Came across a warship
We should’ve stayed to fight
Against the pleas of this brave crew
The captain ran into the night

He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong and we were right

Whiling in a back bay
I took his ship and his command
And the faithful crew stood with me
And the captain stood where he belonged, on land

Branded as a mutineer
I could no longer serve
So I would ply the oceans
And I would take what I deserved

So we sail away
Skull and crossed swords flying high
Legends on the high seas
We’ll live as pirates til we die

Ships fell before us
Abandon Hope served us well
How I’ll be remembered only time will tell

He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong and we were right
He was wrong
