Alestorm & Captain Yarrface – Tortuga

Tortuga

[Intro]
Yar ha ha har
You wanna know where you are, laddie?
Alright then, let me tell ya

[Verse 1]
Palm trees sway in the Caribbean breeze
The sunshine beating down
A wanted man with a price on my head
On the run from the British crown
Last week in Port Royal
I stole a ship and killed the crew
I set sail on a moonlit sky
I knew just what I had to do

[Pre-Chorus 1]
It's time to spin the wheel
We can go anywhere we feel
We're heading west, to the land that's the best
And I ain't ever coming back

[Chorus]
Tortuga
Tortuga
Tortuga

[Verse 2]
Welcome to the sea (What?)
Welcome to the sea (What?)
Yarrface here to tell you how it's gonna be
With a yo ho, gotta be a pirate's life for me
We gonna dig for treasure
Cannon battle
Eating lots of cattle
With a pow pow, shot from a treasure gun
And an "oh wow", Royal Navy's got you on the run
We gonna quest forever

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Sail far across the oceans blue
There's a land that waits for you
Where the alcohol will flow forever
Ride to the land of endless rum
In the Caribbean sun
It's the place where we must go

[Chorus]
Tortuga
Tortuga
Tortuga

[Bridge]
Across the sea, across the sand
I've set my sights on a far off land
Across the sea, across the sand
I've set my sights on a far off land
Across the sea, across the sand
I've set my sights on a far off land
Across the sea, across the sand
I've set my sights on
Tortuga

[Refrain]
Tortuga
Tortuga

[Outro]
Far across the waves
We've sailed for many days
With gold the streets are paved
Where we gonna go?
T-T-T-Tortuga
Far across the waves
We've sailed for many days
With gold the streets are paved
If you're gonna drink rum, well, you better drink rum with me
