Tracklist:

01 – Where Hath th’ Rum Gone?

A good breakfast is by far the best way
to start another pillage and plunder day
And there is perhaps best breakfast than liquor?
And there is maybe best liquor than rum?

So I head to the hold with a satisfied smile
Bringing my greetings to sobriety
But I’ll be damned if some infamous rogue
did not steal all the cans

CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone
Take out the loot right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

CHOIR: I wanna drink now
I need to drink right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
Bring me the culprit

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
No mercy upon him

I’m looking for the loot throughout the ship
Interrogating every man aboard
But they all seem to be dry like me
We may have been cursed by the gods of the sea?

24 barrels of Puerto Rican
We can not have them lost in this way
What would a pirate without rum?
I will find all the cans

CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone
Take out the loot right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

CHOIR: I wanna drink now
I need to drink right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
Bring me the culprit

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
No mercy upon him

Eventually I discovered
that the captain wuz to blame
so I had to go workin’ sober and quiet
for the first time in my goddamn life



CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone
Take out the loot right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

CHOIR: I wanna drink now
I need to drink right now
CHOIR: Where hath th rum gone

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
Bring me the culprit

Where hath th rum gone
Where hath th rum gone
No mercy upon him

02 – House of Jewelry

Once again landed in Port Royal
Back from adventure I’m laden with gold
After unnumbered battles
My poor limbs need a little of well-deserved rest

Hidden in these dirty streets ye know?
There’s a place where all sailors at sunset they go
Entertainment for all tastes
Although I must say that sweet wenches is what I prefer

Ruby-red lips
Sapphire blue eyes
Dazzling smiles of candid pearls

Amber-like skin
Smooth as the jade
Long blonde hairs like a cascade of gold
Payin’ a small price you can choose a jewel for you

Roving the seas is a job full of labors
That’s why there are places like this
I’ve been in a thousand of taverns and harbours
But somehow at last I always come back here

Welcome
Welcome into the house
Welcome into the house of jewelry

Comin’
Comin’ into the house
Comin’ into the house of jewelry

A poor sailor like me
Has no family or home, like a stranger in every port
But I really don’t care about this
Since I’ve plenty of things to do in this world

Ruby-red lips
Sapphire blue eyes
Sweet smiles of candid pearls

Amber-like skin
Smooth as the jade
Long blonde hairs like a cascade of gold
Payin’ a small price you can choose a jewel for you

Roving the seas is a job full of labors
That’s why there are places like this
I’ve been in a thousand of taverns and harbours
But somehow at last I always come back here

Welcome
Welcome into the house
Welcome into the house of jewelry

Comin’
Comin’ into the house
Comin’ into the house of jewelry

Everybody’s welcome into the house
Welcome into the house of jewelry

Get a rich haul if you’re comin’ into the house
Comin’ into the house of jewelry

Roving the seas is a job full of labors
That’s why there are places like this
I’ve been in a thousand of taverns and harbours
But somehow at last I always come back here

Welcome
Welcome into the house
Welcome into the house of jewelry

Comin’
Comin’ into the house
Comin’ into the house of jewelry

Everybody’s welcome into the house
Welcome into the house of jewelry

Get a rich haul if you’re comin’ into the house
Comin’ into the house of jewelry

03 – Grog Jolly Grog

Drinkin’ slow, drinkin’ fast
Drinkin’ first, drinkin’ last
Drinkin’ low, drinkin’ high
All the day, all the night

In the storm, in the sun
From the barrel of a gun
On the deck, above the mast
Drink it while it last

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Tomorrow we’ll be sober

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Come pass the bottle ‘round

Drinkin’ slow, drinkin’ fast
Drinkin’ first, drinkin’ last
Drinkin’ low, drinkin’ high

In the storm, in the sun
From the barrel of a gun
On the deck, above the mast
Drink it while it last

A toast with yer old mates
The cup upside down in the mouth
And get yourself a hearty laugh
Yahahahahaaah

By the sea, on the land
While you seat, while you stand
Grog is pyrate’s best friend
Drink before it ends

I’v a-spent all my life goin’ round
Across the seven briny seas
And I don’t give a damn when I drink me grog

All the day, all the night
Raise your glasses in the sky

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly GrogTomorrow we’ll be sober

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Come pass the bottle ‘round

Drinkin’ slow, drinkin’ fast
Drinkin’ first, drinkin’ last
Drinkin’ low, drinkin’ high
All the day, all the night

In the storm, in the sun
From the barrel of a gun
On the deck, above the mast
Drink it while it last

I’v a-spent all my life goin’ round
Across the seven briny seas
And I don’t give a damn when I drink me grog

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Tomorrow we’ll be sober

Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Grog Jolly Grog
Come pass the bottle ‘round

Grog Jolly Grog

04 – Deadly Day in Bounty Bay

Anchored in the roadstead
Got to clean the hull
We sacked Admiral Lee’s corvette
Just two nights ago

Sunshine sinks behind the hills
Above this haven of sea dogs
Their eyes furtive and lustful stare upon us from the docks

O boys the hold is packed with treasures of all sorts
With silks and satins, spices, sugar and the wealth of Admiral Lee

The trade wind blow hard tonight an’ the torchlits disappear
The bravest will venture to shore while others remain on board

A chill breeze shakes the shrouds
Deadly day in Bounty Bay

Hunted down by the servants of Her Majesty we are
Surrounded by a bunch of thugs in an isolated bight
Get ready to defend the booty, me buckos bold an’ proud
An’ drink an’ sing, an’ stand an’ fight until we’re passed the night

A sail in sight to the harbour mouth
Admiral Lee followed us this far
He intends to bring us to the Execution Dock
An opponent more for us, for more fun

Hunted down by the servants of Her Majesty we are
Surrounded by a bunch of thugs in an isolated bight
Get ready to defend the booty, me buckos bold an’ proud
An’ drink an’ sing, an’ stand an’ fight until we’re passed the night

In Bounty Bay we fight the pyrates
To keep the loot, to keep the loot
In Bounty Bay we fight the tars
To avoid the noose, to avoid the noose

Battle rages on
And dusk turn to night
The red moon is reflected
on the waves of a rippled sea

In Bounty Bay we fight the pyrates
To keep the loot, to keep the loot
In Bounty Bay we fight the tars
To avoid the noose, to avoid the noose

Hunted down by the servants of Her Majesty we are
Surrounded by a bunch of thugs in an isolated bight
Get ready to defend the booty, me buckos bold an’ proud
An’ drink an’ sing, an’ stand an’ fight until we’re passed the night

Hunted down by the servants of Her Majesty we are
Surrounded by a bunch of thugs in an isolated bight
Get ready to defend the booty, me buckos bold an’ proud
An’ drink an’ sing, an’ stand an’ fight until we’re passed the night
