Hello!

Hello! I have just noticed this community referenced in a cross-posting notice over at sparrabeth and jumped over to check it out.

My name is Kyra, I am 22 and have come on the account, as it were, this past July, when my sister bought Curse of the Black Pearl and invited me to watch it with her. Since then it has been like coming home to something familiar, to study and learn things about piracy and especially about female pirates.

The instant I discovered this community, I knew I had something that would be perfect for it, and after checking to see if it had already been referenced here (not checking too well, so sorry if this is redundant), I shall tell you of a musical group called Annwn, what created a song called "The Red Queen," a ballad about Anne Bonney.

Here is the download for it; the main site is here. Patience; it may take awhile to load, but that might be just my crappy internet connection.



And it's weigh, hey, where the Red Queen reigns
From her throne upon the sea
With the hot rum running in our veins
We will serve you steel for tea!

I first took ship at twelve years old
A lad both young and green
A score of years since I'm a pirate bold
And many's the sights I seen
But the finest sight I seen by far
From Port Royale to Malamare
In time of peace or time of war
Is Anne, the pirate queen!

And it's weigh, hey, where the Red Queen reigns
From her throne upon the sea
With the hot rum running in our veins
We will serve you steel for tea
With the black flag dancing overhead
We will salt your beef with flying lead
And you'll regret that ever ya fed
At the board of Anne Bonney

Now, some will rue their sailor's trade
When they see the bo'sun glare
And some will quake at the scrape of blades
Where powder smokes the air
But the bravest tar that ever sailed
Would sooner face a roaring gale
Than feel his breath within him fail
At the flash of Anne's red hair

(Chorus)

Come if you dare, ya silly sheep
We'll shear ye head ta heel
We made the jolly Dutchman weep
And the haughty Spaniard kneel
Come brig and frigate, sloop and snow
We'll strip you clean and sink you low
To take yer grog with Davy Jo
Beneath the rolling keel

(Chorus)

It's rum and plunder ho, my hearts
Our ship is trim and true
We'll set a course for distant parts
And foreign revenue
We sail upon the morning tide
To strop our blades on merchant hide
And we'll get glory, gold and pride
On Captain Bonney's crew

(Chorus)
