Santiano – Liekedeeler

Liekedeeler

In the seaport on the place of execution
There were seventy-three men
And the hangman shouted:
"All on your knees, with the captain I'll start!"
They are accused of piracy, in the name of justice
All are damned by the court
To death by this executioner's axe

He was the Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
Everyone got the booty
The gentleman's friends
Enemies of the whole world
Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
But everyone fled from his ship
The Red Devil will get your gold

As his neck was already fixed on the block
He raised his head once more
Looked around and said:
"If I can have a last wish for after that -
All the men here that I still pass by
Are to be saved from death", and then his head fell
But he still carried his head up to the eleventh comrade

He was the Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
Everyone got the booty
The gentleman's friends
Enemies of the whole world
Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
But everyone fled from his ship
The Red Devil will get your gold

To pick up the cargo he once stole
From the cogs on the high seas
A hundred men sought his proud boat
But it was never seen again

The pardon that was promised
With angel's tongue at his death
Were only lying, because they beheaded
Stubbornly all seventy-two men

He was the Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
Everyone got the booty
The gentleman's friends
Enemies of the whole world
Liekedeeler, Liekedeeler
But everyone fled from his ship
The Red Devil will get your gold
