but we will stand unconquered, beneath Britannia’s sky.
Some will live and some will die, this is your sacred vow
be brave, stand tall and fearless, the time to fight is now.
Aboard the ship Revenge, your duty lies today
against the King of Spain, we free men have our say.
Elizabeth our regal Queen, has summoned us to fight
and we shall be victorious, before the fall of night.
For families and loved ones, we fight to save our land
of England we will tell them, united we now stand.
So come brave men, the hour awaits, the enemy now seen
We fight for god and country, for England and our Queen.
