Written by Mutiny
(Stainsby, Gurr, Grigg and Hewitt)

We were sailing on stormy seas
Wishing we were back on shore in Tahiti
Captain Bligh wouldn’t let us be
Treat people like shit and that’s what you get
Captain was a hard man he was asking for it
Put him in the lifeboat, said goodbye
You’re a hell of a guy
Captain Bligh

Somehow he survived to govern Sydney Town
Said he’d bring the liquor trade down
Seems things turned out the other way ‘round
And the officers were pissed on Rum Rebellion
Asked the troops to expel him
Said that he hid under his bed
You’re a hell of a guy
Governor Bligh
