Keelhauled Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
My friends I stand before you
To tell a truth most dire
They lust a traitor in our midst
Who haven't vote the captain's ire
Verse 2
He don't deserve no mercy
We ought to shoot him with a gun
But I am not an evil man
So first let's have a little fun
Verse 3
We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw it overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip
Verse 4
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
Verse 5
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
Verse 6
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 boy he will burn in hell
Verse 7
The sharks will dine up on his flesh
And davie jones will have his soul
Take his money and his hat
He won't need them where he's gonna go
Verse 8
And first lets tie him to a rope
And throw him overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip
Verse 9
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
Verse 10
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
Verse 11
We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw him overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip
Verse 12
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
Verse 13
Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho
