Zach wins. This song is drums all the way. And a story about pirates.

lyrics

“Set Your Sails”

You’d better set your sails high
You’d better hope that the wind is strong
Pray to the moon for a shiftin tide
Or else you won’t be sailing long

The fleet’ll be here in the morning
The greatest ships of the admiralty
Sent here on the highest order
To protect the trade company

But the tides have turned against us
As the royal fleet draws near
Draw your swords and load your muskets
We’ll make our final stand right here

I guess this battle’s the first of many
Better get used to the life at sea
Cause I know that I’ll keep on runnin
As long as they’ll keep on chasin me
