Alestorm Scraping The Barrel

For many a-year we have travelled the seas,

Singing songs about pirates and all their misdeeds!

Stories of treasure and great undead foes,

Just a day in the life of a man that I know.

Your legendary prowess in drinking much beer

Recorded in song for all people to hear.

But many have asked where we’re next gonna sail

The answer lies deep in a barrel of ale!

[Chorus 2x:]

There are no more tales to be told!

No more stories from battles of old!

Now it seems our journey has come to an end!

We are scraping the barrel my friend!

You may think you’ve heard all this music before,

That Running Wild did it back in ’84

But times are a-changing and we don’t give a damn!

So if you don’t like it, go start your own band!

Many have told us that we can’t go on!

That one day we’ll run out of lyrics for songs!

But when the time comes to write album four,

We’ll scrape at the barrel once more!

[Chorus:]

There are no more tales to be told!

No more stories from battles of old!

Now it seems our journey has come to an end!

We are scraping the barrel my friend!

[Solo]

[Chorus 3x:]

There are no more tales to be told!

No more stories from battles of old!

Now it seems our journey has come to an end!

We are scraping the barrel my friend!

Alestorm Magnetic North

The snow fell hard on a frozen sea

As the night swarmed all around

With no moon to guide our passage north

This corpse of mine may never be found

Thirty days, into this dead mans quest

In search of riches in a time-lost treasure chest

Through oceans never seen, through fog as thick as night

To the northern wastelands, onwards we must fight

Far beyond the ice and snow

Our voyage carries on

For blood and gold, we sold our souls

Redemption lies at Magnetic North

Set the course for Magnetic North

Beyond the snow to Magnetic North

On the quest for Magnetic North

We will die at Magnetic North

Sold a lie, condemned to die

Empty promise encased in ice

One by one, our time has come

Death awaits before the sun

The snow fell hard on a frozen sea

As the sun rose to the sky

Trapped forever in the sea of ice

This is the place where we will die

Far beyond the ice and snow

Our voyage carries on

For blood and gold, we sold our souls

Redemption lies at Magnetic North

Set the course for Magnetic North

Beyond the snow to Magnetic North

On the quest for Magnetic North

We will die at Magnetic North

Alestorm Keelhauled

My friends I stand before you

To tell a truth most dire

There lurks a traitor in our midst

Who hath invoked the captain’s ire

He don’t deserve no mercy

We ought to shoot him with a gun

But I am not an evil man

So first let’s have a little fun

We’ll tie that scoundrel to a rope

And throw him overboard

Drag him underneath the ship

A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul that filthy landlubber

Send him down to the depths below

Make that bastard walk the plank

With a bottle of rum and a yo ho ho

I will not say what he has done

His sins are far too grave to tell

It’s not my place to judge a man

But for them he will burn in hell

The sharks will dine upon his flesh

And Davy Jones will have his soul

Take his money and his hat

He won’t need them where he’s gonna go

But first lets tie him to a rope

And throw him overboard

Drag him underneath the ship

A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul that filthy landlubber

Send him down to the depths below

Make that bastard walk the plank

With a bottle of rum and a yo ho ho

Alestorm Terror Of The High Seas

A ship approaches off the starboard bow

The time has come to fight, the time to strike is now

Reload the cannons, and sharpen up your swords

They will regret the day they faced the pirate horde

Who will survive no-one can tell

Come on, lets give ’em hell

Terror on the High Seas

Terror on the High Seas

A flash of thunder lights up the midnight sky

Fifty dead across the deck as the ships draw side by side

Raise up your cutlasses and quest into the fight

A reign of terror we shall bring unto our foes this night

Who will survive no-one can tell

Come on, lets give ’em hell!

Terror on the High Seas

Terror on the High Seas

A reign of terror on the seas

We’ll bring these poseurs to their knees

And now the time has come to die

Your destiny is nigh

Alestorm Flower Of Scotland

O Flower of Scotland – When will we see

Yer like again – That fought and died for

Yer wee bit Hill and Glen – And stood against him

Proud Edward’s Army – And sent him homeward

Tae think again

The Hills are bare now – Autumn leaves lie

lie thick and still – O’er land that is lost now

Which those so dearly held – That stood against him

Proud Edward’s Army – And sent him homeward

Tae think again

Those days are past now – And in the past

they must remain – But we can still rise now

And be the nation again – That stood against him

Proud Edward’s Army – And sent him homeward

Tae think again

O Flower of Scotland – When will we see

Yer like again – That fought and died for

Yer wee bit Hill and Glen – And stood against him

Proud Edward’s Army – And sent him homeward

Tae think again

Alestorm Mexico

When the quest is over and the battles won

There’s a land far to the south where we go to have some fun

The wenches they are plenty, the alcohol is free

The party lasts all through the night and the alcohol is free

Tonight we drink together

Tomorrow we may die

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Tequila and a donkey show

Mexico, Mexico

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Take me away from the ice and the snow

Let’s go to Mexico

A pirate’s life is simple

We drink and steal and kill

Always we are questing, in search of bigger thrills

We sail across the oceans, got drunk in many bars

But when we sail to Mexico that’s where we party hard

Tonight we drink together

Tomorrow we may die

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Tequila and a donkey show

Mexico, Mexico

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Take me away from the ice and the snow

Let’s go to Mexico

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Tequila and a donkey show

Mexico, Mexico

Yo ho Mexico

Far to the south where the cactus grow

Take me away from the ice and the snow

Three margaritas and a taco

Let’s go to Mexico

Alestorm Man The Pumps

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Well I was just a boy of 12 when I first left the land

I’d never seen a pump before nor held one in my hand

But fate it had in store for me a different destiny

When I joined the crew of the leakiest ship that ever sailed the seas

We were a crew of scurvy dogs but sure we loved to pump

Even though the ship we sailed was just a ragged dump

Every day we pumped together standing side by side

The water kept on creeping in, I thought that we might die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Twas in the gulf of Mexico we sailed a crimson tide

And all the other pirates began to run and hide

“This is a devil’s omen, we cannot pump these seas”

I found myself alone on deck, so the task it fells to me

The pumpy quest ahead of me was ominous and grim

Our ship was sinking rapidly, the red tide flowing in

I battened down the hatches, prepared to do what’s right

I screamed a mighty battle cry and pumped all through the night

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Into the oceans of hell, my friend

Into the oceans we ride

Pump with both hands ’til you’re back on dry land

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

We’re sailing the seas ’til we die

Then daylight came, and all was calm, the ship she did not sink

And all the crew did celebrate their rescue from the brink

But when they spied where I did lay, the mood it fell bereft

For by the time the sun arose, I’d pumped myself to death

Alestorm Rage Of The Pentahook

In Paraguay there lives a man

Five rusty hooks on his right hand

And rage consumes his every living day

As one against the entire world

His hooks of deadly wrath unfurled

Slashing all the bastards in his way

He fights to die

He lives to kill

To cut your throat

His greatest skill

He’ll eat your kids

And punch your house

And set fire to your cat

So we’ll raise our hooks up to the sky

And drink to absent friends

Those far away and those who died

Still fighting to the end

Have no fear for life is short

And death will take us all

So when that bastard comes for us

We’ll meet him standing tall

Die by the Rage of the Pentahook!

Many legends have been told

Of evil men from days of old

But none of them compare to what he’s done

Sadistic psycho through and through

There’s nothing nasty he won’t do

One time he shot a baby with a gun

He’ll break your neck

And eat your face

The foe of all

The human race

He’ll stab your mum

And drink your rum

This bastard can’t be killed

So we’ll raise our hooks up to the sky

And drink to absent friends

Those far away and those who died

Still fighting to the end

Have no fear for life is short

And death will take us all

So when that bastard comes for us

We’ll meet him standing tall

Set sail for the twilight hall

Alestorm Hangover

I got a hangover

I’ve been drinking too much for sure

I got a hangover

I got an empty cup, pour me some more

So I can go until they close up

And I can drink until I throw up

And I don’t ever ever want to grow up

I wanna keep it going, keep keep it going

I got a little bit trashed last night

I got a little bit wasted

I got a little bit mashed last night

I got a little shit faced-ed

I’m on a ship

If you don’t know

Well now you know

I got a hangover

I’ve been drinking too much for sure

I got a hangover

I got an empty cup, pour me some more

So I can go until they close up

And I can drink until I throw up

And I don’t ever ever want to grow up

I wanna keep it going, keep keep it going, come on

Drink up, cause a party ain’t a party

‘Til you ride all through it

End up on the floor wit can’t remember you clueless

Officer like what the hell is you doing

Stumbling, tumbling, you wa’know what? come again

Give me rum, give me gin, give me liquor, give me champagne

Bubbles ’til the end

What happens after that?

If you inspired then tell a friend

Like oh my homie Gregar,

we can all sip again

and again, and again

remember this

Wasted, so what? Irrelevant

We’re kicked to the head,

who’s selling it

I got a hangover,

that’s my medicine

Don’t mean to brag or sound too intelligent

A little Rum can’t hurt this veteran

I show up but I never throw up,

so let the drinks go up, go up

I got a hangover

I’ve been drinking too much for sure

I got a hangover

I got an empty cup, pour me some more

So I can go until they close up

And I can drink until I throw up

And I don’t ever ever want to grow up

I wanna keep it going, keep keep it going, come on

Alestorm Buckfast Powersmash

From Scotland’s bonnie shores we set sail

In search of alcohol, the drunkard’s holy grail

‘Cause a pirate’s life is empty without booze

The situation’s dire, we’ve got nothing to lose

To England we ride

With vengeance on our minds

We’ll kill the monks, and get dead drunk

Come on lads it’s cloister burning time

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!

I’m not sure what’s in it except for caffeine

Despite having drunk it since I was thirteen

It sells by the barrel in China and Spain

I’ll get drunk once more on that Lurgan Champagne

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!

Buckfast Powersmash!
