PIRATE RIDSDALE

Click to Listen

Old Ridsdale did say the ship's run a-ground
It will take us forever to turn it around
The fans are still singing as she sinks in the sea
As the Captain jumped ship
And swam off to Barnsley

So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of the deep rolling sea
So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of the deep rolling sea

Says the purser alas we have run out of tin
The ship lists on the bed as the sea rushes in
The nets are all empty away from the shoals
There's no hope of achieving our mutual goals

So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of that deep rolling sea
So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of that deep rolling sea

After many a storm the Krasner hove to
Neath the scull and the crossbone
Yelled I will save you
From the plank dived his ship mates
To the watery hold
And traded the goldfish for nuggets of gold

So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of that deep rolling sea
So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of that deep rolling sea

As the white roses bob on this wet ghostly grave
Captain Birdseye apears
For the Leeds ship to save
With my brave motley crew
I will turn this ship round
So blow ye west wind for to Europe we're Bound

So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of that deep rolling sea
So awake Leeds awake I'm longing for thee
To rise from the depths of the deep rolling sea
