lyrics

So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well the Rock of Bral is a wretched place,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Where the locals will kill ye if they hate your face,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Ye can find anything ye want and more
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Including some things ye didn’t bargain for
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Oh, the slavin’ trade is alive and well
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
A neogi ship is a passage to Hell
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
There’s plenty o’ gold, so I’ve been told
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
But don’t get lost in the barrios
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
If ye go on in to Luigi’s bar
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
Ye might get drunk but ye won’t get far
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
Well, on the Rock’s where I long to be
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
With a cask of rum on a drinkin’ spree
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well them elven lads I do adore
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
With their sparklin’ eyes and their silken hair
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
When I was a young lass in me prime
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
I’d have those Navy boys two at a time
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
But I’d never leave the stars to settle down
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
When I can have a lad in every town
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I go,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
Well the times is hard and the wages low
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
But we starhands must all roll and go
Along the Arcane Inner Flow
So heave ‘er up and away we’ll go,
Aweigh, Rock of Bral now,
The Rock of Bral is a place I know,
Along the Arcane Inner Flow.
