about

Michel Tonnerre, translation from French by McKenna

lyrics

C’était un fameux équipage à bord du manchester
Tous des forbans, des gars du large commandés par Spencer
“Une chaîne en or une jambe de bois” c’était notre serment
Quoi qu’il arrive on est avec toi jusqu’au jugement

REFRAIN

So reagan dougan et vous autres matelots
À l’abordage le partage n’en sera que plus gros
Tuez les tous pour leurs écus ou vous serez pendus
À la plus haute vergue du mât comme un bourgeois cossu

T'was a sacred gang 'o scum sea farin' pirates all
Scallywags each 'n every one, at daylight & night fall
To steal & loot & stab & shoot it's our occupation
For the gold you have to kill - it's no quarter given!

CHORUS

So Reagan Dougan and the sailor folk Hi Ho!
Stand by to board! & then our hoard! will only grow & grow!
Slay 'em all for the haul or your final hurrah
'll be to hang your neck in noose like a pompous bourgeois!

Roulez dans l’ivresse et la fièvre sans peur d’être pendu
Votre coeur se nourrit de rêve vos mains ont du sang dessus
Pour une fille ou une injure on se battra demain
Ne rêvons que d’autres captures et de nouveaux butins!

REFRAIN

Hurrah the girls hurrah the fair we moor in the Caribees
We're gonna drink up to forget great carnage of the seas.
And in my final battle fought my arm got cut right off
After one thousand coins were swiped from a stinkin' bourgeois toff!

CHORUS

REFRAIN
