Rocky Road to Dublin (Pirate Version)

While in the merry month of June, now from me home I started
Left the girls of Tuam, nearly brokenhearted
Saluted me father dear, kissed me darling mother
Drank a pint of beer, me grief and tears to smother
Then off to reap the corn and leave where I was born
Adventure in me heart and dreams that overwhelm
With the wonder of it all, and I never saw
Until I was a stumbling down thе rocky road to Dublin

1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Rogues were thеre awaiting
Down the rocky road
Anticipating
Whack fol la de da
On a ship I woke that night, man me head was pounding
Searching for the light, with ocean all surrounding
Dragged before the crew, told of expectations
Press ganged into work, despite my reservations
Shocked at what I'd seen, had to cook and clean
And all that's in between, or take me 20 lashes
Learned to tie the knots, pour the whiskey shots
Everything has changed since the rocky road to Dublin

1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Months as whipping boy
Sailed across the sea
Far from Dublin
Whack fol la de da
Picked up all the trades used for theft and pillage
Left no stones unturned while plundering the villages
Lost my innocence, carnal understanding
Every time we anchored for another landing
Learned to drink and fight, of women of the night
All the world's delights, and all the crew a' troubling
Pound another beer, I'm a privateer, my home no longer near
My rocky road to Dublin

1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Count up all the treasure
Pay the pretty whore
Life of endless pleasure
Whack fol la de da

Now I rule the seas, captain of me own fleet
Doing as I please, while dealing out the defeat
Crime, it surely pays, much more than I'd envisioned
Life has made a turn from younger world decisions
My name it will live on, for years when I am gone
The ocean's devil spawn, I leave the people trembling
Head out to the seas, to bring them to their knees
Barbados to the Keys
Bye rocky road to Dublin

1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Years a' sailing
Across the stormy seas
Leave the widows wailing
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Heading home and
Down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin
Whack fol la de da
