Song Lyric Sunday, Part 2

How did I not see the theme was movie songs? I hereby offer my favorite for its courageous inspiration, Hoist the Colors from Pirates of the Caribbean, At Word’s End…

The Jolly Roger

at the beginning

Boy

…and later in China, on the mission to rescue Will.

Hoist the Colors, by Hans Zimmer

lyrics from LyricsMode

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 hands

Hoist the Colors high

Heave Ho, Thieves and Beggars

Never shall we Die!

Yo Ho, All together

Hoist the Colors 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 its watery grave

Hear its sepulchral tone

A call to all

Pay heed the squall

Turn your sail toward home!

Yo Ho, all together

Hoist the Colors high

Heave Ho, Thieves and Beggars

Never shall we Die!

And as an added bonus, Elizabeth Swann’s speech, guaranteed to make you turn pirate and fight the enemy of pirates everywhere, the East India Trading Company.

“Hoist the Colors!” Captain Elizabeth Swann

“Do you have the courage and fortitude to follow orders and stay true in the face of danger and almost certain death?” Captain Jack Sparrow

 

Ye do? Come ‘n sign the book.
