The Pirate's Song My boat's by the tower, my bark's on the bay Both must be gone by the dawn of the day The moon's in her shroud, and to light thee afar On the deck of the "Daring's" a love-lighted star CHORUS: So, wake, lady, wake, I'm waiting for thee On this night, or never, my bride thou shalt be Wake, lady, wake, I'm waiting for thee On this night or never my bride thou shalt be Forgive my rough mood, unaccustomed to sue I woo not, perhaps, as the landlubbers do For my voice is attuned to the sound of the gun Which startles the deep when the combat's begun Oh, islands there are on the face of the deep Where the leaves never fade and the skies never weep So haste, love, make haste, while the fair breezes blow And an ocean bird poses on pinions of snow A hundred shall serve, the best of the brave, The chief of a thousand shall kneel as thy slave And thou shalt reign queen, and our empire shall last 'Til the black flag, by inches, is torn from the mast I learned this one off a Burl Ives record years ago. I'm getting quite a few requests for it these days. Additional verse: (Thanks to Helen Robertson for this) And if thou wilt come thy bower will be A home in the greenwood, a life on the sea And thy throne shall be gilt by the rays of the sun Till we furl down the sail and the last battle’s won.
