"Cannonball" as written by Joshua Vaught, John Joseph Iii Egan, Adam Call, Stephen Paul Voss, Michael Griffith and Jamie Kenney....
These old rusty sails
Still guide my way
Open waters
To the edge of a quiet bay
When my ship rolls in
On a gentle wave
I see clouds of powder
From shots that were aimed at me

Oh no, cannonball
Won’t take us down, wont break these walls
Or sink, sink my sturdy ships down
Don’t you think, think you could ever make drown
Oh oh cannonball
Oh oh my cannonball
Oh oh cannonball
Gonna take us in, take us in, take us in, take us in

I’m no pirate babe
I don’t act that way
Float my boat
On a quarter note sea sway
There's no need for this
All this hostile fire
But rest assured, when waters are stirred
We all ride the tide and nothing is yours

Oh no, cannonball
Gonna take us down, gonna break our walls
and sink, sink just another ship down
Don’t you think, think you could ever make drown
Oh oh cannonball
Oh oh my cannonball
Oh oh cannonball
Gonna take us in, take us in, take us in, take us in

Oh woah la de da ya ya…
