​Hoist The Colours

This song is by Hans Zimmer.

Original video
The king and his men
Stole the queen from her bed,
And bound her in her bones
The seas be ours,
And by the powers,
Where we will, we'll roam

Yo, ho, all together,
Hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
Never shall we die

Yo, ho, haul together,
Hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
Never shall we die

Some men have died
And some are alive
And others sail on the sea
- With the keys to the cage...
And the Devil to pay
We lay to Fiddler's Green!

The bell has been raised
From it's watery grave...
Do you hear it's sepulchral tone?
We are a call to all,
Pay head the squall
And turn your sail toward home!

Yo, ho, all together,
Hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars,
Never shall we die!
