The Piratesong   

My boat's by the tower, and my bark's on the bay,
and both must be gone at the dawn of the day.
The moon's in her shroud, and to light thee afar
On the deck of the daring's a lovelighted star.

So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,

Oh, this night or never my bride thou shall be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shall be.

So wake lady wake, I am waiting for thee,

So forgive me my rough mood unaccustomed to sue;
I woo not, perhaps, as your landlubbers do.
My voice is attuned to the sound of the gun
That startles the deep when the combat's begun.

So wake lady wake, I am waiting for thee,

The Frenchman and Don will flee from our path,
and the Englishmen cower below at our wrath,
And our sails shall be gilt in the gold of the day,
And the sea robins sing as we roll on our way.

So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,

A hundred shall serve - the best of the brave,
And the chief of a thousand shall kneel as thy slave,
And thou shall reign queen, and thy empire shall last
Till the black flag by inches, is torn from the mast.

So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
