Anne Bonny
Written by Karliene Reynolds (2018)

— | LYRICS |–

Anne Bonny

Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Oh I’ll tell you a tale of a pirate queen
A she-wolf who reigned the Caribbean Sea
With a pistol-a-ready and a cutlass keen
The villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Born in Ireland scandalously
Bastard daughter
To a prosperous lawyer
Shunned suitor and society
For the love of a pirate boy

So Calico Jack and our Anne Bonny
Passioned lovers
Villainous plunderers
Sailed off for a life of piracy
On his ship, The Revenge, Ahoy

Oh I’ll tell you a tale of a pirate queen
A she-wolf who reigned the Caribbean Sea
With a pistol-a-ready and a cutlass keen
The villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

But this was the 18th century
Where men make knives
And women make wives
So Anne disguised herself to be
A deadly pirate boy

Oh she plundered and murdered and raided the sea
With canons roaring
Pistols warring
She ravaged galleons mercilessly
Oh Anne Bonny

Then a fellow pirate caught a glance
Her naked chest
A woman’s breast
So she drew her cutlass and took a stand
To be Anne the Pirate Queen

Oh I’ll tell you a tale of a pirate queen
A she-wolf who reigned the Caribbean Sea
With a pistol-a-ready and a cutlass keen
The villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

And that’s when Anne met Mary Read
A pirate siren
Female tyrant
Together they terrorised the sea
A buccaneering team

Oh they plundered and murdered and raided the sea
With canons roaring
Pistols warring
They ravaged galleons mercilessly
Anne and Mary Read

On October 1720
Gold they struck
So the boys got drunk
An easy opportunity
For a ship of British marines

Anne and Mary fought alone
With cutlass flying
Pistols firing
They fought hard for their ocean throne
But lost their victory
And so the crew were captured
Thrown in prison
Death by hanging
But Anne Bonny was pardoned
For her belly held a child

So She paid her Jack a visit
And this she said
With no tear shed

‘If you had fought like a man
you wouldn’t’ be about to die like a dog”

And she turned on her heel
Walked out of the door
And vanished
Into legend

Oh I’ll tell you a tale of a pirate queen
A she-wolf who reigned the Caribbean Sea
With a pistol-a-ready and a cutlass keen
The villainous, infamous Anne Bonny

Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
Villainous, infamous Anne Bonny
