Captain Kidd Lyrics
My name is Captain Kidd
As I sailed, as I sailed,
Oh my name is Captain Kidd as I sailed,
My name is Captain Kidd
And God's laws I did forbid,
And most wickedly I did as I sailed.

My father taught me well
To shun the gates of hell,
But against him I rebelled as I sailed,
He shoved a bible in my hand
But I left it in the sand
And I pulled away from land,
As I sailed

Chorus

I murdered William Moore
And I left him in his gore
Twenty leagues away from shore
As I sailed,
And being crueler still, the gunner I did kill
All his precious blood did spill,
As I sailed,

Chorus

I was sick and nigh to death,
And I vowed at every breath,
Oh to walk in wisdom's path,
As I sailed
But my repentance lasted not,
My vows I soon forgot,
Oh damnation is my lot,
As I sailed.

Chorus

To the execution dock
Lay my head upon the block,
Laws no more I'll mock as I sail,
So take warning here and heed
To shun bad company
Or you'll wind up just like me
As I sailed.

Billy Peddle Lyrics
*Instrumental*

Chorus:
Billy Peddle, Billy Peddle did ya see Tom White? x3
Gone around the harbour, gunna stay all night.
Gone around the harbour, gunna get a dozen beer.
Gone around the harbour, gunna get away from here.
Gone around the harbour, gunna have a cup of tea,
if ya see Billy Peddle tell him I wants he.

Concerning Charlie Horse Lyrics
Come all ye friends I'll sit you down
And sing an oleful ditty,
T'was on a day in April month
We started from the city
We planned a day or two at Mahers
We stalwart men were chosen
To remove ol' Charlie from Angle Pond,
Who fell in when the pond was frozen.

We seven men came roaring down
On the road to Roaches Line,
We might have stopped in Avondale or Brigus might have been fine,
We was hungry as sin but we never stopped in
Nor took any time to park us,
We all of us knew that we must get through to remove old Charlie's carcass.

Here's to Charlie Horse, here's to Shave the Master
No better horse ne'er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here's to Charlie Horse and I wants ye all to know,
Charlie's gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

In the car was Ol' Pocket Comb and beside him Old Moose Coosten,
And Barracuda Bill and Jimmy Clark in the back seat he was roostin'
There was Smiley Stubborn and the Mounted Police
It wasn't hard to find him,
And Johnny Pollack and Sagebrush Sam was sitting right in beside him.
Kevin and Buck was also there, but they brought some brawn and brains,
They was aiming to help as best they could to remove old Chuck's remains,
Charlie was like a brother to Shave and he loved him well of course,
Charlie was a very good man you see although he'd been a horse.

Here's to Charlie Horse, here's to Shave the Master
No better horse ne'er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here's to Charlie Horse and I want ye all to know,
Charlie's gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

Now I'll spare you all the gruesome details
And just relate the end.
With two stout dories and a few strong ropes
We removed old Shavey's friend,
We gave him a decent send off with all our hats removed,
So long as we helped old Shave and his friend, our loyalty was proved.
Somewhere up in the great beyond his eyes are shining bright,
Charlie nods an approving nod cause he knows we did him right.
Shave will join him there one day and he'll bring the harness leather,
And so and for all of eternity they'll pull the logs together.

Here's to Charlie Horse, here's to Shave the Master
No better horse ne'er ran the course nor pulled the logs more faster,
Here's to Charlie Horse and I want ye all to know,
Charlie's gone to the big corral where all good horses go.

A Boat Like Gideon Brown Lyrics
A Boat Like Gideon Brown

Oh Gideon lived across the bay
He's gettin' older now
His boat is big and strong and bold
She has a stalward bow
But my father's boat was second hand
One someone used before
And after every fishing trip
My father always swore
That someday he would save enough
To go to St. John's town
And buy himself a big new boat
A boat like Gideon Brown
A boat like Gideon Brown

Confederation came around
And the days of old age pension
He said 'Son I'm saving every cent'
And this you must not mention
You save the baby bonus too
And things just might turn around
And we'll have enough to buy a boat
A boat like Gideon Brown

Chorus:
'Cause she can punch ahead in any gale
And ride the fishing ground
I often thought how proud I'd be
In a boat like Gideon Brown
In a boat like Gideon Brown

Many years did pass away
And Dad began to fade
He didn't talk of boats too much
He said 'Son I'm afraid'
If things don't soon improve
Then I'll be underground
Before we ever get to see ourselves
In a boat like Gideon Brown

Chorus

I sat and held his hand one day
And he said 'Son, that policy'
The insurance is all in your name
You're the beneficiary
And when I'm gone they'll pay you off
Then go to St. John's town
And buy yourself a big new boat
A boat like Gideon Brown

Chorus (2x)

The Mermaid Lyrics
When I was a lad in a fishing town
Me old man said to me
You can spend your life, your jolly life
Just sailing on the sea
You can search the world for pretty girls
Til your eyes are weak and dim
But don't go searching for a mermaid, son
If you don't know how to swim

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only like the upper part
I did not like the tail

I signed onto a sailing ship
My very first day at sea
I seen a mermaid in the waves
A-reaching out to me
Come live with me in the sea, said she
Down on the ocean floor
And I'll show you a million wondrous things
You've never seen before

So over I jumped and she pulled me down
Down to her seaweed bed
And a pillow made of a tortoise shell
She placed beneath my head
She fed me shrimp and caviar
Upon a silver dish
From her head to her waist
It was just my taste
But the rest of her was a fish

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only like the upper part
I did not like the tail

But then one day she swam away
So I sang to the clams and the whales
Oh, how I miss her seaweed hair
And the silver shine of her scales
But then her sister, she swam by
Set my heart awhirl
Cause her upper part was an ugly fish
But her bottom part was a girl

Yes her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her legs they are a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
And I don't give a damn about the upper part
Cause that's how I get my tail

The River Driver Lyrics
I was just the age of sixteen when I first went on the drive
After six months' hard labor, at home I did arrive.
I courted with a pretty girl, it was her caused me to roam.
Now I'm a river driver, and I'm far away from home.

Chorus:
I'll eat when I am hungry, and I'll drink when I am dry.
Get drunk whenever I'm ready, get sober by and by.
And if this river don't drown me, it's down I'll mean to roam,
For I'm a river driver, and I'm far away from home.

I'll build a lonesome castle upon some mountain high
Where she can sit and view me as I go passing by
Where she can sit and view me as I go marching on
For I'm a river driver, and I am far from home.

Chorus

When I am old and feeble, and in my sickness lie,
Just wrap me up in a blanket and lay me down to die.
Just get a little bluebird to sing for me alone,
For I'm a river driver and I'm far away from home.

Chorus

Scolding Wife Lyrics
Well I came unto a scolding wife
A few short years ago
And ever since, I lead a life of misery and woe
My wife, she is a tyrant
Around the brew (?) and in
I should sell her to the devil
For a glass or two of gin

Should I get up and go to work
As smart (?) as any man
And she'll get up and dress herself
And go and have her dram
And if I chance to say a word
As well I know my doom
She'll follow me with the fire shovel up and down the room

CHORUS
And if the devil would take her,
I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to god I'll hang meself
If I get married again
And if the devil would take her,
I'd thank him for his pain
I swear to god I'll hang meself
If I get married again

When I get up at breakfast time
She'll tap me on the head
When I come home at dinnertime
I'll find her drunk in bed
When I come home at suppertime, with patience I must stop
Cuz' she drinks what's in the teapot
And I must drink the slop

Chorus

Well once I asked me scoldin' wife
If I could go to bed
She scarce gave me an hour on the pillow to lay me head
When like a roarin' lion
She came bustin' down the door
She caught me by the middle
And threw me naked on the floor

Chorus

*musical break*

Well me and my companions
Go to a public place
She'll search around the neighborhood
Until she finds my face
She'll hoist me up in ridicule
Before the company
Saying: 'Petticoats is your master and forever horse you'll be!"

The Night Pat Murphy Died Lyrics
Oh the night that Pat Murphy died
is a night I'll never forget
Some of the boys got loaded drunk,
and they ain't got sober yet
As long as abottle was passed around,
every man was feelin' gay
O'Leary came with the bagpipes,
some music for to play

[Chorus]
That's how they showed their respect for Paddy Murphy
That's how they showed their runner and their pride
They said it was a sin or shame and they winked at one another
And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner
pouring out her grief
Kelly and his gang came
tearing down the street
They went into an empty room
and a bottle of whiskey stole
They put the bottle with the corpse
to keep that whiskey cold

[Chorus]

About two o'clock in the morning
after empty'ing the jug
Doyle rolls up the ice box lid
to see poor Paddy's mug
We stopped the clock so Mrs. Murphy
couldn't tell the time
And at a quarter after two we argued
it was nine

[Chorus]

They stopped the hearse on George Street
outside Sundance Saloon
They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
They went up to the graveyard,
so holy and sublime
Found out when they got there,
they'd left the corpse behind!

[Chorus]

Oh the night that Pat Murphy died
is a night I'll never forget
Some of the boys got loaded drunk,
and they ain't got sober yet
As long as abottle was passed around,
every man was feelin' gay
O'Leary came with the bagpipes,
some music for to play

[Chorus]

Well every drink in the place was full
the night Pat Murphy died

When I Am King Lyrics
Wake up
Without a care
Your head's not heavy
Your conscience clear
Sins are all
Forgiven here
Yours and mine

Fear is gone without a trace
It's the perfect time in the perfect place
Nothings hurting, nothing's sore
The doctor found a simple cure
Just in time

All these things if I were king
Would all appear around me
The world will sing when I am king
The world will sing when I am king

She walks right in
She don't even knock
It's the girl you lost to the highschool jock
She shuts the door
Turns the lock
And she takes your hand

She said she always felt a fool
For picking the captain over you
She wonders if you miss her
Says she always told her sister
That you're the best damned kisser
That she's ever had

Daylight waits to shine until the moment you awaken
So you never miss the dawn
No question now you know which road you're takin'
Lights all green the radio
Plays just the perfect song

The war's been won
The fights been faught
And you find yourself in just the spot
In a place where everybody's got a song to sing

And like the final movie scene
The prince will find his perfect queen
The hero always saves the world
The villians get what they deserve
The boy would always get the girl
When I am king

General Taylor Lyrics
Well General Taylor gained the day
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
Well General Taylor he gained the day
Carry him to his bury'n ground

Chorus:

Tell me where you're stormy
Walk him along, John, carry him along
Tell me where you're stormy
Carry him to his bury'n ground

We'll dig his grave with a silver spade
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
His shroud of the finest silk will be made
Carry him to his bury'n ground

Chorus

We'll lower him down on a golden chain
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
On every inch we'll carve his name
Carry him to his bury'n ground

Chorus

General Taylor he's all the go
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
He's gone where the stormy winds won't blow
Carry him to his bury'n ground

Chorus

General Taylor he's dead and he's gone
Walk him along, John, Carry him along
Well General Taylor he's long dead and gone
Carry him to his bury'n ground

Sea Of No Cares Lyrics
When you're in love there's no time and no space
There's a permanent smile on your face
Your friends all complain that you're going insane
But the truth is they're just afraid

And hey, hey, hey somewhere
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares
Hey, hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares

Oh, when you decide that what counts is inside
Your friends all say it's a lie
But there's no brighter light than the look in her eyes
When you're walking her home through the night

And hey, hey, hey somewhere
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares
Hey, hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares

Let yourself go with the tide
There's an angel by your side tonight

Threw your fear in the sea

Oh, back at the bar getting cynically stoned
Your friends are drinking alone
But it's funny, they don't even cross your mind
When she asks you into her home

And hey, hey, hey somewhere
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares
Hey, hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares
Hey, hey, hey somewhere
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares
Hey, hey, hey somewhere,
You threw your fear in the sea of no cares

You threw your fear in the sea
You threw your fear in the sea

Helmet Head Lyrics
I was just seventeen, when I made the AHL
I couldn't skate in junior, but my fists rang like a bell.
I'll never win a title, and I'll never win the cup,
But when it comes to ladies, I've had the best of luck.

My first one was a sly one, hanging round the rink,
But they sent me off to Cornwall, as fast as you could blink,
In Moose Jaw I was right in love, the daughter of the coach
He traded me for nothing, didn't take to my approach.

So good-bye, fare thee well,
There's no time for delay,
You'll see me at the face-off, or catch the play-by-play
So good-bye, fare thee well,
I'm glad you shared my bed,
But never trust a fellow with a helmet on his head.

Chantal was from Moncton, elle a jouer avec moi.
A tongue as sharp as razors, but she had a fancy car.
Her husband was a bruiser, played senior in Quebec,
If he'd had the rights of it, it would have been my neck.

Nancy couldn't watch me fight, she'd always be in tears,
Waving from the bleachers, and screaming in my ears,
Dee I should have married, and we had a dandy fling,
But I had a one way contract, blew the money for the ring.

I should have sent a letter, and it would have been polite,
But I'm cleaning out my locker, and time is getting tight.
I'm calling from the station, perhaps another day,
Cause they're calling up a rookie, and they're trading me away.

Consequence Free Lyrics
Wouldn?t it be great, if no one ever got offended?
Wouldn?t it be great to say what?s really on your mind?
I have always said, all the rules are made for bending?
And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?

I wanna be consequence free
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
I wanna be consequence free
Just sing, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na
Say, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

I could really use, to lose my Catholic conscience
?Cause I?m getting sick of feeling guilty all the time
And I won?t abuse it, yeah I?ve got the best intentions
For a little bit of anarchy but not the hurting kind

I wanna be consequence free
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
I wanna be consequence free
Just sing, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na
Oh, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

I couldn?t sleep at all last night
?Cause I had so much on my mind
I?d like to leave it all behind
but you know it?s not that easy
Oh but it?s just one night

Wouldn?t it be great, if the band just never ended?
We could stay out late and we would never hear last call
We wouldn?t need to worry about approval or permission
we could slip off the edge and never worry about the fall

I wanna be consequence free
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
I wanna be consequence free
Just sing, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na
Oh, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na
Oh, Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

Ordinary Day Lyrics
I've got a smile on my face and I've got four walls around me
I've got the sun in the sky, all the waters surround me
Oh you know, Yeah I've been down and sometimes I'll lose
I've been battered, but I'll never bruise
It's not so bad

And I say way-hey-hey, it's just an ordinary day
And it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day,
You've just got to say it's all right.

Jeana sings on the corner, what keeps her from dying?
Let them say what they want, but she won't stop trying
Oh you know, She might stumble if they push her 'round
She might fall, but she'll never lie down
It's not so bad

And I say way-hey-hey, it's just an ordinary day
And it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day,
You've just got to say it's all right.

It's all right, it's all right
It's all right

In this beautiful life there's always some sorrow
And it's a double-edged knife, but there's always tomorrow
Oh you know, It's up to you now if you sink or swim,
Just keep the faith and you're ship will come in it's not so bad

And I say way-hey-hey, it's just an ordinary day
and it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day,
you've just got to say
I say way-hey-hey, it's just an ordinary day
and it's all your state of mind
At the end of the day,
you've just got to say... it's all right
It's all right, it's all right

I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
