  1. A local bar favourite, if you have been to a pub in Halifax, you KNOW this song


    O the year was 1778
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    A letter of marque came from the king
    To the scummiest vessel I've ever seen God damn them all

    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers


    O Elcid Barrett cried the town
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    For twenty brave men all fishermen who
    Would make for him the Antelope's crew
    God damn them all . . . .

    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers



    The Antelope sloop was a sickening site
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    She'd list to the port and her sails in rags
    And the cook in the scuppers with the staggers and jags
    God damn them all . . . .



    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers



    On the King's birthday we put to sea
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    Ninety-one days to Montego Bay
    Pumping like madmen all the way
    God damn them all . . . .



    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers


    On the ninety-sixth day we sailed again
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    When a great big Yankee hove in sight
    With our cracked four-pounders we made to fight
    God damn them all . . . .



    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers


    The Yankee lay low down with gold
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    She was broad and fat and loose in stays
    But to catch her took the Antelope two whole days
    God damn them all . . . .


    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers



    Then at length she stood two cables away
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    Our cracked four-pounders made awful din
    But with one fat ball the Yank stove us in
    God damn them all . . . .


    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers



    The Antelope shook and pitched on her side
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    Barrett was smashed like a bowl of eggs
    And the main truck carried off both me legs
    God damn them all . . . .


    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers


    Now here I lay in my twenty-third year
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    It's been six years since we sailed away
    And I just made Halifax yesterday
    God damn them all . . . .

    I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold
    We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
    Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
    The last of Barrett's Privateers

    CMX(Finnish music band)-About the light faster machines

    Cold than metal, empty than heart
    i am enroute back to the dark
    cold than metal, empty than heart
    not of it yet to see2x

    march sun, don't us discard
    when the day goes more longer so for little time
    in the wind frot snow to play, though soon melt
    not of it yet to see2x

    and before than sun freezes
    it burn moment hotter
    and before we eyes closes
    what about all they yet to see

    hot than metal, full than heart
    i am enroute back to the light
    hot than metal, full than heart
    not of it yet to see 2x

    sometimes reaches that light here
    and i remember about places
    where i haven't visit

    CMX-Knights of the storm

    when you would be amazing song in happy sounding
    or cornfield in solar light golden
    an ultimate summons on my tired mind
    there where the stars graph over your head about the most high crown

    -so you are far away about me

    when the day rises
    rest knights of the storm to their hurry
    they breathe
    to awaiting to night and the new life

    to the mask of the winter to had be buried my terrain to wait of the night
    these i think together can't stop
    the duffs thoughts of the talks exclusively more get worse
    from afar like from belove the water i hear the noise of the fear/deterrence

    -so i am far away about you

    DROPKICK MURPHYS LYRICS

    "Tessie"

    Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
    Tessie is the tune they always sung
    Tessie echoed April through October nights
    After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
    Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
    Tessie is a maiden with a love
    She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
    She's got a comment full of love
    And sometimes when the game is on the line
    Tessie always carried them away
    Up the road from "Third Base" to Huntington
    The boys will always sing and sway

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
    They found their seats had all been sold
    McGreevey led the charge into the park
    Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from "Third Base" to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from "Third Base" to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, "Nuf Ced" McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Boston, you are the only only only
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Red Sox, you are the only only only
