LOTT
For we’ll be the brides of no one,
Promised to none
No longer in shadows, we shine in the sun,
For we are the brides of no one,
Engaged to the sea
Drop fear, raise courage,
Come sail on with me

For we are the brides of no one,
Let’s raise up our guns
Raise sails! Pull anchor! Lash rails!
We’ll be the brides of no one

ENSEMBLE
Heave ho, we’re bound for Tortuga
Taut sails and fair winds,
We’re bound for Tortuga
Load cannons, hone blades,
W’re bound for Tortuga
Hey little Filles, feel free, take the ride
We’re bound for Tortuga

LOTT
But we’ll be no one’s brides

MARY
Neptune does beckon,
My reluctance does wane
That old life is passing like
Suds down the drain
I’ll be the claim of no one, to work ‘til I die
Embrace salt-lifted air and
Hear sea eagles cry
Trade toil for life: I’d have thought it insane
To pull up my stakes and feel freedom again

ALL
Heave ho, we’re bound for Tortuga
Taut sails and fair winds,
We’re bound for Tortuga
Load cannons, hone blades,
We’re bound for Tortuga
Hey little Fille, feel free, take the ride
We’re bound for Tortuga

LOTT
Yeeeeeaaaaaaooowww! Come on, look alive, No dreams unfulfilled
Hey! You force my hand
The blood will be spilled
Fortune be damned and
The damned hold their own
We’ll rage hell and high water
But not do it alone

I’ll be the lightning if you will be my thunder
Break hearts and break jaws
And tear their evil asunder

ALL SING
Heave ho, we’re bound for Tortuga
Taut sails and fair winds,
We’re bound for Tortuga
Load cannons, hone blades,
We’re bound for Tortuga
Hey little Fille, feel free, take the ride
We’re bound for Tortuga

LOTT
Inspired vengeance be our guide

We’ll be the brides of no one,
Promised to none
No longer in shadows, we shine in the sun
For we are the brides of no one,
Engaged to the sea
Drop fear and raise courage, no complacency
For we are the brides of no one,
Let’s raise up our guns
Pull anchor, raise sails

ALL
We are the brides of no one
No longer in shadows we shine in the sun
Engaged to the sea but be wedded to no one
Drop fear and raise courage; sail on with me
Untethered and loose we’ll set ourselves free
For we are the brides of no one,
Lets raise up our guns

LOTT
Raise up the sails! pull anchor!
Let fly that bloody banner

ALL
Tortuga here we come!
