Rimes of the Hip Hop Mariners

The albatross? Oh the albatross!
Pirates hate the cost, when that bird was lost.
Now I tell this tale so it won't be forgot,
That these rhymes so hot,
They could kill on the spot.
I pass like night from land to land,
I have strange power of speech.
And from the sea or sand,
If ya hear this beat, you'll lie dead on the beach.

Now I be that hip hop mariner, these tales and rhymes I spit.
If you permit, I must admit, how I killed all aboard me ship.
We set sail by day, toward that southerly way.
With them wind and waves, nothing kept us at bay.
The line was crossed toward that land of frost.
And when all was lost, we saw that albatross.

Through the frozen mist we did persist.
To follow that bird, to the turn we missed.
When there was nowhere to go I started shooting them rhymes.
They flew from me life, like a lead out of nines.

The albatross? Oh the albatross!
Pirates hate the cost, when that bird was lost.
Now I tell this tale so it won't be forgot,
That these rhymes so hot,
They could kill on the spot.
I pass like night from land to land,
I have strange power of speech.
And from the sea or sand,
If ya hear this beat, you'll lie dead on the beach.

Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink!
Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink!
Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink!
Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink!

When I saw the albatross drop, I was pissed.
It was like a warning shot, but it didn't miss.
Then it got warm, so there's no crime to blame,
That was until the ghost ship came.
On board was death and a lady shootin dice.
Death won the roll for my soul, oh nice!
Tried to sneak away, but I just didn't work.
So I flipped off the captain, "Great job ya jerk."
Now I'm a zombie, curse in my eyes,
No turning back from the black in the skies.
Me die easy? You're off your rocker.
I too mean for Davy Jones locker.

Listen up boy, or your life is lost!
This is why ya don't kill the albatross.
I will survive and I will not fail,
I'll be the first dead man who can tell my tale.

The albatross? Oh the albatross!
Pirates hate the cost, when that bird was lost.
Now I tell this tale so it won't be forgot,
That these rhymes so hot,
They could kill on the spot.
I pass like night from land to land,
I have strange power of speech.
And from the sea or sand,
If ya hear this beat, you'll lie dead on the beach.

We drove, we stirred, we all uprised, despite our demise.
When demon moved our eyes, strange to see the dead men rise.
We were a ghastly crew with jobs to do.
Keep the sails filled though no breeze up blew.
Then at dawn, our souls ascended,
Saved with the fate that Cap D had descended.
He had to pay cummins for what he had done.
Lose a cursed rhyme or order he the loaded gun.
For his sin, he begs the Hermit to shrieve him.
Once forgiven he begins to grieve the firing pin.

The glock clicks.
When it comes to thievery,
Captain Dan never quits.

The albatross? Oh the albatross!
Pirates hate the cost, when that bird was lost.
Now I tell this tale so it won't be forgot,
That these rhymes so hot,
They could kill on the spot.
I pass like night from land to land,
I have strange power of speech.
And from the sea or sand,
If ya hear this beat, you'll lie dead on the beach.
