Lyrics: East India Company

Sailing & Searching
across the sea
for spices, slaves and lemontrees.
As long as the wind
is my friend
I can reach that distant land

Across the equator
sooner or later
we all will be working
for the East India Company

I give you one
If you give me two
make a profit for the crew.
Coconuts for stock & trade
As long as the market is being paid

From Amsterdam to Lissabon,
to Zanzibar and on and on
Fighting and trading
without a care
we’ll venture out
to where we may dare
