Based on Michael Longcor's song, "Privateer"

When I was young my friends all fought like fools to get a seat
On an outbound ship to the endless oars of the Royal Caid fleet
But I left home at 18 years a privateer to be
Now I can outfight any four fleet men and outdrink any three

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.
And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.

When the Captain calls I do my duty, hard as it might be
For he built me up from from a mere deck swab to the sailor that I be
But depsite his wealth, his prowess, his honor or his fame
At the end of day I see the Captain's lady to get paid

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.

When we're luffed up in a sunny gale,and the ship be standin still
You can bet our bloody helmsman is asleep across the wheel
But, never fear, me hearties, when the sharks the do arrive
We've got so many cannons they're assured of a surprise.

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
when you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.

And no one's seen the first mate in an age or two or three
he's a passed out in his Wiskey drunk as an irishman could be
But, when it comes your time to face the lash out on the sea
Don't worry for your punishment we'll just have Liza sing.

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.

But, let not a soul speak poorly o'er ship or crew or game
For not fa off they'll come a day, They'll cheer our bloody name
And if ever doubt do enter about the profit this thing
Just remember 'board the White Star, we'll eat like we are kings.

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
when you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.

So, here's a toast to the fools who drove us out from Whales to Rome
And, here's a toast to all the bloody souls who call the White Star home
And here's to the old man of the sea who's always at our side
Who snickers when we first ship out and takes us when we die.

And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.
And it's cheer up me lads let your hearts never fear
When you ship out on the White Star for to be a privateer.
