So Captain Butcher and the crew

Of a ship called The Pride

Set sail towards the colonies

To stop The Tyrant‘s stride.


When weeks of searching for the fiend

Did seem to be in vain,

They caught the Tyrant by surprise

In heavy wind and rain.


They raised the flags and loaded guns,

And battle soon began,

But when Joe Butcher fought Tom Zane,

The Tyrant lost her man.


When Zane fell to the Butcher’s sword,

The Tyrant‘s men lost heart.

They dropped their weapons to the deck,

And fighting fell apart.


“We yield!” The Tyrant‘s first mate cried

To the proud Butcher Joe.

The Pride‘s men cuffed the Tyrant’s crew

And locked them all below.
