    Running Wild Jenning’s Revenge текст песни

    Jenning’s Revenge

    1714 that was the year
    The Spanish fleet ran out of luck
    The weather was stormy
    The sea was lashing, furious
    Lightning and thunderstruck
    Three hundred men
    Fighting hand in hand
    Abandonment or raid
    Tons of ‘pieces of eight’

    The ‘Flotilla’ was driven
    Down to the reefs
    The wooden hulls of the vessels
    Were cracked
    300 000 ‘pieces of eight’
    The fleet of that year
    Was totally wrecked

    Three hundred men
    Fighting hand in hand
    Abandonment or raid
    Tons of ‘pieces of eight’

    The viceroy commanded
    To furnish a squad
    60 soldiers to dreg up the plate
    Fool all their salvage
    To a small camp ashore
    Lack of suspicion
    No thought of a raid
    Jennings came up
    With a hazardous plan
    The Spanish garrison
    Was taken by guise
    Three sailing vessels
    Three hundred men
    300 000 their glittering prize

    Three hundred men
    Fighting hand in hand
    Abandonment or raid
    Tons of ‘pieces of eight’

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    The Spanish plate hauled off by raid
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Jennings’ trick a painful kick

    During their escape
    They happened to spy
    A gorgeous Spanish merchant ship
    ‘In for a penny, in for a pound’
    They got them in their steely grip
    And several thousand
    ‘Pieces of eight’
    To fill their ships up to the deck

    Jennings’ fleet sailed out to sea
    No one ever found his track

    Three hundred men
    Fighting hand in hand
    Abandonment or raid
    Tons of ‘pieces of eight’

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    The Spanish plate hauled off by raid
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Jennings’ trick a painful kick
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Impudent tries will win the prize
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    No soldier pack will find his track
