Raise a Glass

Another sailor’s drinking song. I know, I know, I love them. :p This one is for the setting of Tyria from Guild Wars 2, and Lion’s Arch (mentioned in the song) is one of the cities from said setting, certainly not my creation. Enjoy!

Raise a Glass

Raise a glass, raise a bottle
Press the cool rim ta yer lips
And drink deep from the bottle
Yeh won with yer sweat on the ships!

Amber liquid touches yer tongue –
Swill fit enough for a king! –
Now the lads croan and harps are strung
As stories of plunder we sing!

Oh, hoy, come away lad,
Yeh’ve yet ta prove yer worth!
Oh, hoy, spoils be had
Ta help kindle our mirth!

Raise a glass, raise a bottle!
Press the cool rim ta yer lips!
And drink deep til ye hobble
As ye try ta crawl back ta yer ships!

Oh, hoy, come away then
There’s work yet in the sails!
Oh, hoy, tide’s comin’ in
And the wind from the west prevails!

We make port in Lion’s Arch,
Where traders of all ilk reside!
We make port and then we march
To where the brew be yet supplied!

Oh, hoy, come away now
And join we sailor’s merriment!
Oh, hoy, wave off the bow
And see your earnings be well spent!

Raise a glass, raise a bottle
Press the cool rim ta yer lips!
And drink deep from the bottle
Yeh won with yer sweat on the ships!
