Arrrr!!!

Ok, lo ammetto. Questa cosa del metal “piratesco” mi sta sfuggendo di mano… Ho scovato gli Alestorm per sbaglio mentre ascoltavo la radio di Spotify, e non riesco più a toglierli dalla playlist. Il genere è un misto tra il Folk Metal ed il più comune Power, che ormai è diventato quello che ascolto più di frequente. Il gruppo è scozzese, ed ha all’attivo quattro album in studio ed uno live. Addivertitevi, specie col ritornello di Nancy The Tavern Wench, che da ultimo è pure un utilissimo mantra da tenere sempre a mente…

 

I know of a tavern not far from here
Where ye can get some mighty fine beer
The company’s true and the wenches are pretty
It’s the greatest damn place in the whole of the city

If you’re looking for crewmates, you’ll sure find ‘em there
Cutthroats and lowlifes and worse I should dare
Ol’ Nancy don’t care who comes to her inn
It’s a den of debauchery, violence and sin

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe

If you’re looking to go on a glorious quest
There’s a man there who knows of an old treasure chest
For some pieces of eight, and a tankard of ale
He’ll show ye the map, and tell ye it’s tale

And then there’s Nancy, the lovely barmaiden
She may be old but her beauty ain’t fadin’
Ol’ Nancy don’t care who comes to her inn
It’s a den of debauchery, violence and sin

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe

[Solo]

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe

So come take a drink and drown your sorrows
And all of our fears will be gone till tomorrow
We’ll have no regrets, and live for the day
In Nancy’s Harbour Cafe


 

My friends I stand before you
To tell a truth most dire
They lurks a treator in our mist
Who haven’t vote the captain’s ire

He don’t deserve no mercy
We ought to shoot him with a gun
But I am not an evil man
but first let’s have a little fun

We’ll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw him overboard
drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank
with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

I will not say what he has done
His sins are far to grave to tell
It’s not my place to judge a man
But for them he will burn in hell

The sharks will dine up on his flesh
And Davy Jones will have his soul
Take his money and his hat
He won’t need them where he’s gonna go

but first lets tie him to a rope
And throw him overboard
drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank
with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

We’ll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw him overboard
drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank
with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber,
send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho


 

Sailing the raging seas
To distant lands unknown
Porto Bello fell in a day
Now Britannia rules the waves
Thirty thousand men at arms
Red Ensign in the sky
To Cartagena we set sail
With blood and plunder we‘ll prevail
Twice struck, and twice we‘ve failed
But third time works a charm
The greatest fleet the world has seen
To fight the War of Jenkins‘ Ear
Waters lash across the bow
Through Caribbean Seas
The year is 1741
The final battle has begun
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
The sands of time will remember our names
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
History is written today
Across the sea-lashed deck
Our captain gives a cry
„Cartagena lies ahead
The Spanish foe will soon be dead!”
Portents of coming doom
Engulf the battle line
High above, the heavens sigh
A red light burning in the sky
An omen of dread
Which no man can deny
The legends hold true
We must turn back or die
Superstitious fools
Be gone from my sight
Blast the trumpets of war
And prepare for the fight
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
The sands of time will remember our names
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
History is written today
Hard to starboard
Man the cannons
And on my command, unleash hell!
FIRE! Show them your steel
Bring them to death on the battlefield
Ride on the wind, and conquer the foe
The legends be damned, to our deaths we will ago
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
The sands of time will remember our names
The skies are burning with thunder
The seas are ablaze with flame
Set the course for Cartagena
History is written today
