Sink the Vengeance by Sable

A filk of “Sink the Bismarck” by Johnny inspired by “The Toy Soldier Saga.” Available on Sable’s Bandcamp Page.

Lyrics:

In Spring of 5041 the war had just begun
The orcs, they had the biggest ship; they had the biggest guns
The Vengeance was the fastest ship that ever sailed the stars
On her deck were guns as big as deer and shells as big as carts

Out of the cold and foggy night came the elven ship the Dirk
And every elven spacehand knew they had to make it work
They had to sink the Vengeance, the terror of the stars
On her deck were guns as big as deer and shells as big as carts

We’ll find that orcish battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We’ll hit the decks a-runnin’ boys and spin those guns around
When we find the Vengeance we gotta cut her down

The Dirk found the Vengeance, and on that fatal day
The Vengeance started firin’ fifteen hex away
“We gotta sink the Vengeance!” was the battle sound
But when the smoke had cleared away, the mighty Dirk went down

For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail
Zaor told the people “Put every ship a-sail
‘Cause somewhere out in Wildspace I know she’s gotta be
We gotta sink the Vengeance so the spaceways can be free!”

We’ll find that orcish battleship that’s makin’ such a fuss
We gotta sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We’ll hit the decks a-runnin’ boys and spin those guns around
When we find the Vengeance we gotta cut her down

The fog was gone the seventh day and they saw Dukagsh’s’ sun
Ten hours away from homeworld the Vengeance made ‘er run
The admiral of the elvish fleet said “Turn those bows around!
We found that orcish battleship and we’re gonna cut her down!”

The elven guns were aimed and the shells were comin’ fast
The first shell hit the Vengeance, they knew she couldn’t last
That mighty orcish battleship is just a memory
“Sink the Vengeance” was the battle cry that shook the starry sea

We found that orcish battleship t’was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We hit the decks a’runnin’ and we spun those guns around
Yeah, we found the mighty Vengeance and then we cut her down

We found that orcish battleship t’was makin’ such a fuss
We had to sink the Vengeance ’cause the worlds depend on us
We hit the decks a’runnin’ and we spun those guns around
Yeah, we found the mighty Vengeance, and then we cut her down
