A dreaded curse is spoken of
By all men of the seas
An ancient tale of pirate's woe
And sailor's tragedy

A map was drawn by grizzled men
Forgotten years ago
A chest of glory and mortal sin
That none should ever know

And they searched and they searched
And they searched and they searched
For forbidden treasure old
And this curse and this curse
And this curse and this curse
Will forever now be told

A pirate captain of many years
Had heard these whispers grim
But lust for treasure and endless wealth
Had all but blinded him

He hired a crew of hardy men
To help him in his cause
They never knew the danger of
This bounty's evil force

And they searched and they searched
And they searched and they searched
For forbidden treasure old
And this curse and this curse
And this curse and this curse
Will forever now be told

Now stormy nights when moon is full
Will herald in their call
A ghostly crew who loot and kill
Till all before them fall
Now listen lad, remember this
When foul wind blows agale
Lest shadow come and write your name
In adage to this tale
