Alestorm Midget Saw

Who’s that short man what does he do?

He killed that monkey with his shoe!

Why that monkey? Why his boot?

‘Cause he had a belly full of loot!

The monkey needs his damn revenge!

That poor creature we’ll avenge!

Midget Saw, a deadly fate

Chopped up limbs become shark bait

Midget Saw, the pirate’s code

It says that both your legs must go

Chopped to pieces

Ripped to shreds

You’re gonna wish that you were dead!

Grab him by his manky hair

And strap him to that table there

This pirate’s not gonna walk again

He’s in for a world of nasty pain!

Slap that midget with an oar

Remove his legs with a saw!

Midget Saw, a deadly fate

Chopped up limbs become shark bait

Midget Saw, the pirate’s code

It says that both your legs must go

Chopped to pieces

Ripped to shreds

You’re gonna wish that you were dead!

Midget Saw, a deadly fate

Chopped up limbs become shark bait

Midget Saw, the pirate’s code

It says that both your legs must go

Chopped to pieces

Ripped to shreds

You’re gonna wish that you were dead!

Alestorm Sunset On The Golden Age

Inside of aeons from chaotic spires

A shell of frozen time

Where beats the silent ocean

Of shadows turned sublime

Forces of inspiring luminescence

Guide the hidden way

I know that it will take me to

Another golden age

Sundered from daylight, by the rage of the unseen

Betwixt carbonic plateaus where rarity convenes

Under the heat of a thousand suns destruction is attained

When flows the red and ochre histories ingrained

Legends pass and time ticks on, entropy prevails

Into the endless darkness every ship must sail

Ouroboros uncoiled, the circle ends tonight

One thousand years of history banished from all sight

The sun will set forever

Never to rise again

And in the coming darkness

We’ll fight to the bitter end

Our legend passed from memory

It’s time to turn the page

The sun has set upon the golden age

The final chapter, the end is close at hand

Across the boundary where ocean meets the sand

Embrace the anatine, forsake all that you know

The tenebrous cosmic sphere where all of us must go

Inside of aeons from chaotic spires

A shell of frozen time

Where beats the silent ocean

Of shadows turned sublime

Forces of inspiring luminescence

Guide the hidden way

I know that it will take me to

Another golden age

The sun will set forever

Never to rise again

And in the coming darkness

We’ll fight to the bitter end

Our legend passed from memory

It’s time to turn the page

The sun has set, now night is falling

Never again to hear the calling

The sun has set upon the golden age

Alestorm Of Treasure

A dreaded curse – Is spoken of

By all men of the sea – An ancient tale

Of pirate’s woe – And sailor’s tragedy

A map was drawn – By grizzled men

Forgotten years ago – A chest of glory

And mortal sin – The none should ever know

And they searched and they searched

And they searched and they searched

For forbidden treasure old

And this curse, and this curse,

and this curse, and this curse

Will forever now be told

A pirate captain – Of many years

Had heard these whispers grim – But lust for treasure

And endless wealth – Had all but blinded him

He hired a crew – Of hardy men

To help him in his cause – They never knew

The danger of – This bounty’s evil force

And they searched and they searched

And they searched and they searched

For forbidden treasure old

And this curse, and this curse,

and this curse, and this curse

Will forever now be told

Now stormy nights – When moon is full

Will herald in their call – A ghostly crew

Who loot and kill – ’til all before them fall

Now listen, lad – Remember this

When foul winds blow agale – Lest shadow come

And write your name – In adage to this tale

Alestorm Back Through Time

Captain, there be vikings off the starboard bow!

Attack!

‘Twas off some Caribbean shore,

While on an epic quest.

We came across a strange device!

A mystic portal into another time.

Where vikings ruled the land and sea!

Such mighty treasure they did hold.

We killed them all to steal their gold!

[Chorus:]

You put your faith in Odin and Thor!

We put ours in cannons and whores!

Your viking gods won’t save you now,

When the pirates strike from the starboard bow!

Back through time, to fight the viking foe!

Back through time, where our voyage must now go!

Six hundred years into the the past,

Our destiny is here at last!

For infamy and plunder we will ride!

Their ships were powerless against our cannon fire.

We took no prisoners that day! (Yahaharr)

The Vikings prayed for mercy,

As we cut their throats!

But their worthless gods did not hear their cries!

[Chorus]

[Solo]

Such mighty treasure they did hold.

We killed them all to steal their gold!

[Chorus]

Alestorm Over The Seas

Many moons ago, in a faraway land

We met an old man with a hook for a hand

He showed us a map that lead to treasure untold

He said, “I’ll give ye the map, if ye give me some gold”

For some pieces of eight the deal was done

He gave us the map, our quest had begun

We gathered our crew and set sail on the waves

And we knew we’d be rich by the end of the day

Now we’re sailing over oceans and seas

With a lust for gold and the power of steel

Over the seas, we shall ride

Searching for treasure, into the night

Over the seas, our quest has begun

And we will not stop with the dawn of the sun

Through treacherous seas we reached the lost isle

And over it’s shores we marched for many miles

Until we discovered where the treasure did lie

With gold coins and jewels gleaming inside

Now we’re sailing over oceans and seas

With a lust for gold and the power of steel

Over the seas, we shall ride

Searching for treasure, into the night

Over the seas, our quest has begun

And we will not stop with the dawn of the sun

Over the seas, we shall ride

Searching for treasure, into the night

Over the seas, our quest is done

And we will be home by the dawn of the sun

Alestorm Barrett’s Privateers

Oh, the year was 1778,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

A letter of marque came from the king,

To the scummiest vessel I’d ever seen,

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

Oh, Elcid Barrett cried the town,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

For twenty brave men all fishermen who

would make for him the Antelope’s crew

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

The Antelope sloop was a sickening sight,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

She’d a list to the port and her sails in rags

And the cook in scuppers with the staggers and the jags

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

On the King’s birthday we put to sea,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

We were 91 days to Montego Bay

Pumping like madmen all the way

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

On the 96th day we sailed again,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

When a bloody great Yankee hove in sight

With our cracked four pounders we made to fight

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

The Yankee lay low down with gold,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

She was broad and fat and loose in the stays

But to catch her took the Antelope two whole days

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Mister Heri Joensen.”

[Solo]

Then at length we stood two cables away,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

Our cracked four pounders made an awful din

But with one fat ball the Yank stove us in

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

The Antelope shook and pitched on her side,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

Barrett was smashed like a bowl of eggs

And the Maintruck carried off both me legs

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

So here I lay in my 23rd year,

HOW I WISH I WAS IN SHERBROOKE NOW!

It’s been 6 years since we sailed away

And I just made Halifax yesterday

God damn them all!

I was told we’d cruise the seas for American gold

We’d fire no guns-shed no tears

Now I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier

The last of Barrett’s Privateers.

Alestorm Pegleg Potion

Far away in a secret cove

In the land of Sgriubh-á-dubh

We hide our mighty pirate ship

From the eyes of folks like you

Aboard the good ship Matey

We brew a toxic punch

It looks a bit like gravy

And it tastes like captain crunch

Ephemeral, delectable

Entirely undetectable

You’ll need a pair of spectacles

For diplomatic dog

I sail the seas of Sgriubh-á-dubh Island

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Always on the search for treasure

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Drink to the end of time

Take one part finest spirit

From Caribbean seas

Mix it up with monkey brains

And the scrapings from your knees

A dash of creme de cacao

A pint of french moonshine

Shake for 15 seconds

Prepare for drinking time

From Oregon to South Dakota

Underwater toilet quota

Driving in an old Toyota

Systematic frog

I sail the seas of Sgriubh-á-dubh Island

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Always on the search for treasure

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Drink to the end of time

I sail the seas of Sgriubh-á-dubh Island

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Always on the search for treasure

So pour me a glass of the pegleg potion

Drink to the end of time

We’ll drink to the end of time

Alestorm That Famous Ol’ Spiced

Many a year I have worked in these parts

Running this inn that ain’t marked on no charts

Though its location to many is known

If you’re to find it you have to be shown

Through methods long hidden we carefully craft

A beverage to rival the Huntmaster’s draught

The mere smell of which, the Gods would entice

And them that know call it that Famous Ol’ Spiced

Here sits a man, a smuggler by trade

A-boastin’ of all of the money he’s made

Runnin’ his liquor to here and to there

Travellin’ all over and peddlin’ his wares

He says he’s had beers from Prussia and wines

Taken from all of the very best vines

But none of these tipples could ever suffice

So I’ll bring him a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced

Oh, pour me a slug of it

Throw me a mug of it

Bring me a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced

In walks a sailor all battered and blue

Fallen afoul of his captain and crew

They’d pulled in to port, their cargo was stacked

But three hours later he’s caught in the act

Acquainting himself with the skipper’s own wife

This fool was lucky to leave with his life

He’s not here for doctors or friendly advice

He just wants a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced

Oh, pour me a slug of it

Throw me a mug of it

Bring me a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced

For men of the sea go as fast as they come

And leave little more than the tales they have spun

So sing me your sermon and pay me my price

And I’ll give you a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced

Oh, pour me a slug of it

Throw me a mug of it

Bring me a jug of that Famous Ol’ Spiced
