Tortuga Bay

by Running Wild

Running Wild is a German heavy metal band, formed in 1976 in Hamburg. They were part of the German metal scene to emerge in the early to mid 1980s.

Man or boy, we'll fight all as one
Bending the rules, it's the call of the wild
Last resort, to be shot down in pains
Playing your very last card

Where the streets have no name
Where the devil's in all men
If you knew what was a slain
Pay or flee in Tortuga Bay

Fight to death, games that men play
Flashing of steel and the clash of the sword
Last breath, the kill of the day
Proving what all men must fear

Hoist up the mainbrace and fasten the sails
Crow's nest is screaming for shore
Ready the rum that is stored in the hold
Bringing what we need and more

Live by stealth, cover your track
Enemies scuttled but who needs to see
No escape, knife in your back
Proving what all men must fear

Hoist up the mainbrace and fasten the sails
Crow's nest is screaming for shore
Ready the grass that is bound up in bales
Bringing what we need and more

Where survival's the game
Where you fight for your freedom
If you knew what was a slain
Pay or flee in Tortuga Bay
