Subject: Lyr Add: THE DARK LADY (Bernadette Gillece)^^

The Dark Lady

Bernadette Gillece

A fierce one-eyed man named Baron LaBonne
A meaner pirate had never been known
And he sailed on the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And High on the mast the skull and bones flew
Flee and swift was the Dark Lady.

And every night the Baron would drink a toast
He'd say, "Here's to my lovely lady host!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

A rich Spanish galleon was spotted one night
The Dark Lady's crew prepared for the fight
Clash of swords.... No Spaniards survived it
Except for the maiden with dark eyes so bold
Found in the hull with the jewels and the gold
LaBonne laughed and took her for ransom.

And every night the Baron would drink a toast
He'd say, "Here's to our lovely lady host!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady sighed.

The girl Carlotta was a beauty quite rare
With each passing night Labonne couldn't bear
his empty bed. He brought her to it
The Baron soon found he felt more than desire
His love for her frew and his sould filled with fire
He proclaimed that they would marry.

That night the Baron drank with jubilee.
He said, "Here's to my lovely bride-to-be!
My one true love..."
"Hear, hear!" the crew replied
And the Dark Lady cried.

The following night a storm brewed at sea
The Dark Lady saw her chance to be free
of her rival, the beauty Carlotta.
The ship steered herself to the heart of the gale
Where a wave swept the maiden out over the rail
Sweet revenge on an unfaithful lover.

That night the Lady drank a toast
She said, "Here's to your lovely lady host!
Your one true love..."
No voices replied
And the Dark Lady smiled.

And now any night when a storm fills the sky
They say that a ghost ship sails in its eye
Fleet and swift is the Dark Lady
A ship strong and sound with a perilous crew
And high on the mast the skull and bones flew
While the captain gazes out to sea

And every night the Baron must drink a toast
he says, "Here's to our lovely lady host.
My one true love...."
"Hear, hear!" the ghost crew replies
And the Dark Lady smiles.

Yo, kat.

It's all part of a request made by a near namesake of yours Here.
The CD seems unavailable, but I have faith that someone will have it.

If anyone is still looking for the tune it is on a cd by the Bedlam Bards, Furious Fancies. Check for its availability on their website: www.bedlambards.com

I'm still looking for the music.

At the lowest end of the spectrum, the Bilge Pumps have it on one of their CDs.
