And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Break the oars
Shackle the slaves
lock ‘em up tight
to steal the knaves

nobody cares
so why’s it the law?
We all need gold
so fight and then draw.

King and Queen so far away,
Never will we stop our play!

we can win
With a flick of the wrist
a card the cause
no doubt 'bout this!

with rollin' seas
and cargo ships
Nothin’s more fun
than golden chips

King and Queen so far away,
Never will we stop our play!

We’re pirates lad,
we don’t mean no harm
lest we catch you with cards
u your arm!

We’ll dice you up,
fry ya too
just to eat
some good ole stew

King and Queen so far away,
Never will we stop our play!

Rum rum dum da de dum do
Ree la lee dell de da doom

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
