House Montague

A ship born house of trade is Montague
With sun white sailcloth unfurled ‘neath the sky
And but for en’my’s steel would live and do
The wrenching work of sailors by and by
For the wretched house of Capulet
Whose rapiers see more sun than sailing men
Doth make the seaborn trade a dicing bet
By sacking ship and drowning sailing men

Gentle people rally to our house
And there find food and drink and goodly grace
Take up not arms for Capulet the louse
Instead the banner Montague do brace.
For under flag of black, Capulet lies
And we, bold Montague, shall not lay by. 

House Capulet

Heed not the words of Elder Montague
Whose aged knees doth bear an aged mind
Instead see us as we are wont to do
To love, to trade, and serve well on the tide

For gold we have, embraced by gat and wall
Food and drink and music at thy need
Bold soldiers young and strong stand at our call
Renowned for gentle speech and daring deed

Old Montague’s a relic of the past
His time has come and gone out with the sea
Their faded colors with our own contrast
So where will you, my friends, all choose to be?
On House Capulet, the future lies
And with Montague, all happiness dies.
