the mad captain by pretzels malone
t h e __ w o r d s:
the captain, mad captain
he told the men his plans
and then they went out stealing things
so they could rule these lands
they stole four antique cannons from the castle
hijacked a truckload of metal from the factory
they stole a jet engine from the old air force base
the mad captain nodded satisfactorily
they welded the metal…into a battering ram
and the big jet engine was for extra speed
cannons armed in every direction
the mad captain had returned to the sea (X2)
They were a terror in the open waters
They’d sink any ship that they saw
And with their jet engine they were able to avoid apprehension
and stay a step ahead of the law
Vengeance in the form of a storm
Came rolling across the sea
The mad captain pulled his eyes from the sky
He’d seen more than he wanted to see
All hands below deck, the captain roared
Tie yourself down so you don’t go overboard
t h e __ s t o r y: (more of it…)
In the year 2035 the Mad Captain escaped from Las Vegas. He hadn’t always been mad, but twenty years in solitary changes a man. Two decades earlier he had been one of Martin Scorsese’s top Captains, and controlled half of the Royal Armada.
After escaping, the Mad Captain spent two years on land, hijacking and stealing, both collecting what he needed and causing problems for Scorsese and Daisy whenever he could. After two years of this the Mad Captain decided it was time to return to the sea.
The Mad Captain rounded up a crew of delinquents, and they stole themselves a tug boat from an abandoned marina. They hooked their tug boat up with cannons, a battering ram and a jet engine from an old fighter plane.
They hit the water with Colonel Daisy and her soldiers right on their heels, but were able to evade them off the western coast of Old-Canada. For six wild weeks, the mad captain and his tugboat of doom caused all sorts of trouble for Colonel Daisy and Mr. Scorsese. They primarily employed hit and run tactics, taking out any ships that strayed too far from the Armada.
The size of the enemy eventually proved to be too much, and in October of 2037, Colonel Daisy’s Armada surrounded and forced the Mad Captain and his men into a storm that they could not and would not survive.
