Track Name: Waterfront
Waterfront by Jason Mendelson

On the heaving sea food is running out
and we've paced this deck from bow to stern to bow
fifty million times as we plot and scheme
our only fear, the crew may lose their steam

Captain Braverman leads on
First Mate Emily believed her all along
the tales of treasure all are true
we shall raid the Office of Tax and Revenue

We invade at night take them by surprise
sleeping tight they never see our eyes
and the midnight calm is interrupted with the fight
and the flames engulf them as they're swimming for their lives

With the harbor ours no residents remain
the captain charges east storming right down Maine
to the grand facade where the booty waits
ours to plunder and no one's standing guard

Oh-oh-oh-oh... yo ho ho ho ho
