You’d better set your sails high boys
You’d better hope that the wind is strong
Pray to the moon for a shifting 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 orders
To protect the Trade Company

But the tides have turned against us
As the Royal Fleet draws near
So draw 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 I’ll keep on running
As long as they’ll keep on chasing me
