Lyrics

Daughter of the dún 
Terror of the west 
Sailed the coasts of Ireland 
With O’Malley on her crest 

Sailors on the blue 
Shakin’ in their cots 
Feelin’ the foreboding of 
The terror that she wrought 

Hup the hull and away we go 
Stock the galley o’gold 
Whack the divil the gales he blow 
We’ll batter him up in the hold 

Dance along on the waterline 
Speed us over the waves 
Back to back on the borderlines 
To never shut up & behave 

Gráinne Mhaol 
Queen of the pirates 
She set sail 
On the raging sea 
Gráinne Mhaol 
The gleam of the Irish 
Spun her tales 
On the ocean free 

Never to be caught 
Tangled on the ropes 
Hacked away the lengthy locks 
In order to elope 

She would lose no fight 
She would take no shite 
Stole the noble offspring 
In the middle of the night 

Hup the hull and away we go 
Stock the galley o’gold 
Whack the divil the gales he blow 
We’ll batter him up in the hold 

Dance along on the waterline 
Speed us over the waves 
Back to back on the borderlines 
To never shut up & behave 

Gráinne Mhaol 
Queen of the pirates 
She set sail 
On the raging sea 
Gráinne Mhaol 
The gleam of the Irish 
Spun her tales 
On the ocean free 

Banríon na farraige 
Cróga agus tréan 
Ag taisteal ar na dtonnta 
Cailín ag troid di féin 

Translation: 
(Queen of the sea 
Strong & powerful 
Travelling on the waves 
A girl fighting for herself) 


Tabhair faoi na Breataine 
Éist leis a béic 
Scrios na báid leatromach 
Ag cosaint ar an ríocht 

Translation: 
(Charge towards the British 
Listen to her yell 
Smash the oppressive ships 
Defending the kingdom) 

Never to fall!!! 
A rebel in all!!! 

Gráinne Mhaol 
Queen of the pirates 
She set sail 
On the raging sea 
Gráinne Mhaol 
The gleam of the Irish 
Spun her tales 
On the ocean free



Meaning

"Pirate Metal tribute to Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen of Ireland!!"
