A “girls blame the guys” song. The ladies are in desperate circumstances, just take a look at with whom they sail, and they are forced to turn to a life of crime. They only steal from the audience though, just like Robin Hood. Kinda. Maybe. Female Vocals, Folk, Pirate Songs

Come fill up your glasses and let us be merry, For to rob bags of plunder it is our intent.
Chorus As we roam through the valleys Where the lilies and the roses And the beauty of Kashmir lay drooping his head Then away, then away To the caves in yonder mountain, Where the robbers retreat
As you look around us you'll see naught of value For our men do adore us but provide they do NOT
They are shiftless and lazy They do not earn their keep And so we have turned to a life of great crime. So we sneak; and we steal; and we thieve. Then away to the mountains, Where we robbers retreat.
Hush, hush in the distance there's footsteps approaching Stand, stand and deliver it is our watch cry.
We are skilled in deception. We are strong-willed and wise. And our quick-wits and fine forms do serve us so well. So we plot; and we plan; and we scheme. Then we get what we want, And away we retreat.
Don't be fooled by our beauty or pleasing demeanor. For we're lethal young ladies and your loot is ours now!
We would much rather pinch, Than to earn a days wage, So you are our victims, we take what we like. Your coin, your jewels, your men! Then away to the mountains, 'Til we meet again!
