Lyrics

THE SPANISH MAIN

I’VE LED A LIFE OF PLEASURE,A GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE,
BUT AS I WAS WALKING BY THE STRAND,I FELL IN WITH A SAILOR MAN

WE WENT TO THE TAVERN ON THE HILL,IN COMPANY GOOD WE DRANK OUR FILL
THEN THROUGH THE DOOR CAME TWENTY MEN,NOW I’LL NEVER SEE MY HOME AGAIN

CH HEAVE – HO, HOIST THE SAIL AND DON’T BE SLOW
I’LL NEVER SEE MY HOME AGAIN
FOR I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN

NOW WE’RE ABOARD WITH FRANCIS DRAKE, WHOSE NAME IN VAIN WE DARE NOT TAKE
A LICK OF THE LASH TO UNDERSTAND, THE CAPTAIN IS A DEMANDING MAN

I’VE NEVER SAILED A SHIP TO SEA NOR EVER HAD AN ENEMY
NOW I’M IN THE SERVICE OF THE QUEEN,AND A MARINERS’ LIFE’S A DANGEROUS THING

CH;

I’M SICK AS A DOG AND I CANNOT STAND,I’D RATHER BE ON DRIER LAND
BUT THE FIRST MATE TOLD ME THAT I’D HANG,IF I DIDN’T GO WITH THE PRESS GANG

THERE’S A TIME FOR EVERY MAN TO FIGHT,THE ARMADA IS A TERRIBLE SIGHT
NOW A MUSKET BALL HAS FOUND MY EYE,
ALAS, MY WIFE AND CHILD GOODBYE
ALAS, MY WIFE AND CHILD GOODBYE
ALAS, MY WIFE AND CHILD GOODBYE

CH; HEAVE – HO, HOIST THE SAIL AND DON’T BE SLOW
I’LL NEVER SEE MY HOME AGAIN
I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN

HEAVE – HO, HOIST THE SAIL AND DON’T BE SLOW
I’LL NEVER SEE MY HOME AGAIN
I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN
I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN
I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN
(I’M OFF TO FIGHT ON THE SPANISH MAIN)
