A drinking song, sung in Irish.

Imagine our fearless crew members enjoying libations at their favorite tavern owned by the lovely Molly Black.

Sláinte agus táinte = Health and wealth

TEACH TÁBHAIRNE MHAILLÍ NÍ DHUIBH

Tabhair dúinn rum, a Mhailli
Tabhair dúinn rum
Tabhair é go tapa
mar tá an-tart orainn
Is é an leigheas is fearr é an rum
Tá orainn leigheas linn
Brostaigh ort, a
spéirbhean dubh!

Tabhair dúinn rum, a Mhailli
Tabhair dúinn rum
Tabhair é go tapa
mar tá ar mugaí folmha
Táimid ar maos in airgead
Is againn atá an saol
Brostaigh ort, a
spéirbhean dubh!

Sláinte agus táinte
Sláinte agus táinte
Sláinte agus táinte
Caith siar é!

Bring us rum oh, Molly Black
Oh, Molly bring us rum
There’s a fearsome thirst upon us
which only rum will slake
So quickly bring our remedy
That one and only cure
Tarry not, sweet Molly Black
