Sea Wolves

Searchin' the waves for sight of a sail. Throwin' back hearty tankards of ale. " Sails to port, " the lookout did call. So excited was he that he nearly did fall. Closin' in on the prey excitement grows. In less than an hour we'll come to blows. Ocean spray feels good on my face. Closer and closer we're winnin' the race. " Weapons in hand, " I cry from the poop. My wolves get ready as we near the sloop. The vessel did gleam, she's a true beauty. My blood is boilin' for my pirates booty. " At her lads, " I yell through a death grin. We swarmed so fast the fight did barely begin. The fight was swift but it was bloody. After spyin' the treasure I knew we'd been lucky. Out of the chest gold spilled to the deck. Loot her and burn her, we'll sink this wreck. Back to our ship we take our loot. Survivors on the plank their gettin' the boot. Twas just another day in a pirates life. You've got to be quick and sharp as a knife.
