about

In 2012 Melanie found out that Yvan Wever was not only her cousin from Durban, South Africa, but also captain of our local Rugby team, the Donau Pirates, of the Rugby Union Donau in Vienna. We started watching the matches, which they basically always won, and we all caught fire when they won the finals and it literally was a call for a Pirates hymn. The team was thrilled by our idea of writing a song for them. Together, the lyrics were adjusted, stomp and shout choir recorded, and the moment was unforgettable when “Go Pirates” shook the stadium for the first time. And second time. And again! A winner tune, as it turned out - accompanying the pirates as they were celebrated as the 2014 Rugby master once again.

lyrics

You better tie your pants tight
The seas are getting rough
We ́re not scared, we go further
The stronger winds will blow
We got the coffer
Now let ́s get the treasure
Heading out for deep waters Yeah

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no

We sail close to the wind
Under the flag
A symbol of glory
No Prisoners we take
Go Hide next to your daughters
You should run for your life
these are our waters Yoho

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy, no

Damnation seize my soul
When I give you a quarter
Or take any from you
No bounds
No fear
For the glory we ́re here
To fight in a battle between 2 sides
With massive hits and crazy tries.
We will fight till the end
We’ll take all that you ́ve got
So bring it on
Take your best shot
Stand proud Pirates
Let ́s go
YO HO YO HO

Go, go Pirates go
We will wear your men down
Push you to the ground
Singin'
Go, go Pirates go
There´s no way we´ll leave you with the trophy
no, no, no
