6. Scraping the Barrel (4:40)
For many a-year we
have travelled the
seas,
Singing songs about
pirates and all their
misdeeds!
Stories of treasures
and great undead
foes,
Just a day in the life
of a man that I know.
Your legendary
prowess in drinking
much beer
Recorded in song for
all people to hear.
But many avast
where we're next
gonna sail
The answer lies deep
in a barrel of ale!
[Chorus]
The are no more
tales to be told!
No more stories from
battles of old!
Now it seems our
journey has come to
an end!
We are scraping the
barrel my friend!
You may think
you've heard all this
music before,
That Running Wild did
it back in '84
But times are a-
changing and we
don't give a damn!
So if you don't like it,
go start your own
band!
Many have told us
that we can't go on!
That one day we'll
run out of lyrics for
songs!
But when the time
comes to write
album four,
We'll scrape at the
barrel once more!
[Chorus]
The are no more
tales to be told!
No more stories from
battles of old!
Now it seems our
journey has come to
an end!
We are scraping the
barrel my friend!
[Solo]
[Chorus]
The are no more
tales to be told!
No more stories from
battles of old!
Now it seems our
journey has come to
an end!
We are scraping the
barrel my friend!
