Racing down for Cape Trafalgar
October, Eighteen Hundred and Five
Twenty-seven ships of the line
Flying the white ensign
Hearts of Oak the drums roll out
Weapons primed, we'll make our stand
Taste their fear as we draw near
Upon the decks prepare to fight

Raking fire, mass mutilation
Glorious, blood-soaked, living hell
Blood-soaked, living hell

Our fleet outgunned
Our crew outnumbered
England expects
The outcome is in our hands

To the line of fire we surge
Damn the odds to break their line
Drawing fire as we sail on
With massive loss on every side
Under a hail of hostility
Cannons blaze as metal whirls
Projectile storms pulverize
Unto the end prepare to die

Shattered pieces, masts come crashing
Rigging, sails torn to shreds
Broadside to broadside batteries pounding
Pummelling, punishing, round after round
Cleanse the decks of every last man
Blow them all to smithereens
Overwhelm the enemy
We will have our victory

Man the cannons, unleash the fury
Fighting relentless, tooth and nail
