The Space Shanty Contest [Winners Announced]!

Recommended Posts

Re-wrote the Fortuna song. Since most of the Railjack crewmembers are from Fortuna, this is what I imagine their song would become once they've decided to help the Tenno:

COLD, THE VOIDS OF SPACE WE TRAVEL
HARD, THE HULL WE CALL OUR HOME
PUSH, OURSELVES TO MAKE OUR WEAPONS
REAP THE FRUITS OF WHAT WE'VE SOWED
THIS, THE WILL OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS
FORGE OUR FUTURE HERE AND NOW
SOON, THE ENEMIES WILL ALL FALL
BY US AS WE PUSH ON, CHANTING

COLD, THE VOIDS OF SPACE WE TRAVEL
HARD, THE HULL WE CALL OUR HOME
PUSH, OURSELVES TO MAKE OUR WEAPONS
REAP THE FRUITS OF WHAT WE'VE SOWED
THIS, THE WILL OF SONS AND DAUGHTERS
FORGE OUR FUTURE HERE AND NOW
SOON, THE ENEMIES WILL ALL FALL
BY US AS WE PUSH ON, CHANTING

AND WE ALL BUILD
AND WE'LL ALL BE KILLED TOGETHER
TOGETHER
ELSE WE'LL PUSH ON
TILL THE END OF DAWNS TOGETHER
TOGETHER, CHANTING

//This is intended to go with the drumms

//and choir made of baritone and bass.

Ready!

 

In inanity, deep, dark and vast,

Tenno will purge Sentients to the last,

WE ARE COMING!

 

No Sentient spared will be,

Our mercy doesn't let them flee,

THIS IS WAR!

 

We will deliver terror and pain,

To the Sentiens whose march is in vain,

PREPARE TO DIE!

Past the earth
Where we stood tall
On saturn's ring
We heed her call

And we listen to the silence
Before we meet the fray
As we might fall tomorrow
But we won't fall today

Surrounded by red
In the veil we meet
Where tenno assemble
The grineer will bleed

At the edge of the shadows
We follow the forgotten way
Where we might fall tomorrow
But we won't fall today

We will save the faith
And guide her back home
When what was past
Is what's to come

Where all shall meet
Where faith must stay
And we might fall tomorrow
But we won't fall today

The dice is cast
The stars we ride
The truth set free
Let fate decide

The lotus will guide us
With her we won't stray
For we might fall tomorrow
But we won't fall today

---------------

Based on a poem I wrote a few years ago, and rewrote for this. Not my best work, but it's the middle of the exams, so time is limited. Hope you like it

HMMM(x4)
There once was a Grakata gunner named CLEM!

Clem had the moves and Clem used THEM!

The child was wild and so were his MOVES!

To fight alongside such a joy and a GEM!

HEY YOOO!

HEY YOOO!

WE ROAM THROUGH SPACE

WE LIVE FOR THE CHASE 

HEY YOOO!

HEY YOOO!

INSPIRED BY THE LITTLE GUNNER LAD NAMED CLEM!

HMMM(x4)

There was a real captain

Cephalon Cy!

There wasn’t much trouble didn’t catch his eye!

Fires and breaches, ramsleds and goons!

THAT ROWDY OL’ CEPHALON’S ONE SWELL GUY!

HEY YOOO!

HEY YOOO!

WE ROAM THROUGH SPACE

WE LIVE FOR THE CHASE

HEY YOOO!

HEY YOOO!

INSPIRED BY THE ROUGHNECK CEPHALON CY!

(further verses are just drunkenly improvised iterations, as befitting a sea shanty— wait, does this universe have alcohol?)

through the vast and dark space

we watch the stars as they flicker

and as they shine brighter

we will head forward our goal

 

deep inside the enemy fleet

weaving through all hail

of bullets and missiles

as we shoot our way out

with all of our might

The Lua is a ship, my lads, for Grineer force she’s bound,

The engine oh-ho hear it purr, as it carries us around,

Cephalon Cy gives us orderrrrrr to soar the cosmos wide,

Where the sun never rises, and darkness dims the void,

Hum-hum!

Cheers up my lads, for transference will hold strong!

While dapper ship The Lua, is oh-ho ne'er wrong!

From skirmish here to skirmish there,

Our Lua sees it through!

So don’t you weep, we’re sure to pass,

Because we always do oh-ho!

Cheers up my lads, transference will hold strong!

While dapper ship The Lua, is oh-ho ne'er wrong!

We reach for beyond the stars,

Together we take on death,

For victory is always ours!

We fight until last breath, because,

Our Lua sees it through!

So don’t you weep, we’re sure to pass,

Because we always do!

So we say…!

Cheeeeeeers up my lads, transference shall hold strong!

While dapper ship The Lua, is oh-ho ne'er wrong!

And we sing,

Cheeeeeeers up my lads, transference shall hold strong!

While dapper ship The Lua, is oh-ho ne'er wrong hum-hum!

SPACE NINJA PIRATES

Horizon on the sight, and floating the sea
We are standing together brothers
We are fighting together brothers
Who are we? SPACE NINJA PIRATES

For those that stand in front
We will destroy them
We will delete them
With what? ARCA PLASMOR

Jump, dash, bring the heat, do it then repeat
HO go go do NOT stop
HO go go do NOT retrieve
You are the SPACE NINJA PIRATE

Jump, dash bring the heat, do it then repeat
HA slash, slash, slash them all
HA slash, slash, spin around
We shall destroy them TOGETHER

Loot, break, take it all
We shall not leave them a thing
We shall not allow their existence
We will take them out


We are SPACE NINJA PIRATES

Void is the place we go to fight now

Void is the place we go to save now

Tenno rise and strike your relics 

For loot is our drink of choice, 

 

Cetus come and Cetus go

Plaguestar come and Plaguestar go

Eidolon come and Eidolon go

But Warframes are forever, 

 

Fortuna come Fortuna go

Enslaving masses just for show

Credits rain down from the index

Tennos now acquire fortune, 

 

Raise your zaws for every Tenno

Raise your kitguns for every Tenno 

Raise your rivens for every Tenno

Warframes rein Supreme now, 

 

Gather together all your squad mates

Gather together all your clan mates 

Gather together all your railjacks

Time for Tenno to sail the stars

Together.

So I just started playing Warframe this Month after not giving it fair chance when it first came to Xbox one, I’m genuinely loving this game now and the community only regret is not sticking with it back then. But I’m here now looking forward to what’s on the horizon and proud to be a Tenno!

Shanty: Tenno Leave her.

I thought I heard the Old Teshin say:

"Leave her,Tenno, leave her."

 

The Next Cycle you’ll get your Ducats,

And it's time for you to leave her.

 

Leave her, Tenno, leave her!

Oh, leave her, Tenno, leave her!

 

For the void is vast and the Grineer be mad.

And it's time for you to leave her.

 

Oh, the Elder Queen was foul and the Lich’s went wild.

"Leave her, Tenno, leave her!"

She was no Lotus by any means and that displeased her.

 

And it's time for us to leave her.

 

I hate to pilot this old Railjack alone so listen close.

"Leave her,Tenno, leave her!"

 

No Kuva needed or Fear allowed.

It's time for us to leave her.

 

We swear by Lotus for want of more.

"Leave her, Tenno, leave her!"

But now we're in the Void so we'll carry on.

As it's time for us to leave her.

 

*Edited* Winning or not, me and my ghost clan have officially started chanting this in between missions.

This Shanty is meant to be sung while likely raising mugs of totally legal alien alcohol that's perfectly suitable for our absolutely of age operators. The Shanty singer may or may also not be drunk and boasting, standing on a rickety table in a tavern of ne'er-do-wells.

 

"""Two guns by her side, one Tenno up top-

one sets the phasers and another yet locks!

But the guns aren’t what make us a crew!

It only be what us Tenno do!

 

Our gunner takes flight on our old slingshot-

cutting through hulls like a saber too hot.

While engine destruction is helpful- it’s true.

It only be what us Tenno do!

 

The Pilot strafes left to avoid the laser

Oh no you’ll need more than THAT to phase’er.

Guiding our ship like a skittish Mergoo-

it only be what us Tenno do!

 

The Engineer takes our treasure’s we’re hoarding,

and puts an end to all parties boarding.

And while we all thank ‘em for their duty too-

It only be what us Tenno do!

 

Tactician aboard is like a third eye.

N'er a worry left when they’re on stand by.

And while their teleportin’ from one place- no TWO.

It only be what us Tenno do!

 

And when it’s all done- no more to obtain,

We’ve stolen their lives and taken their gain!

 

We return to the Dojo for a moment to rest,

and place our loot into the appropriate chest.

Then when we’re rested and with nothing to do

 

We rush ahead to start up round two!"""

The Railjack Song/Slaughter 
 

Clem is happy 

Clem has a dream

A giant Kuva Lich killer team


Grineer ship is close

Grineer are all dead

Sucked in by black holes with particle effects 

 

Sentients are nearing 

we kill Natah 

The Kavats will eat her even if shes still raw 

 

And while they all die 

we fly back home 

With a new Warframe to call our own


My best attempt at one of these Hope you guys enjoy it

Title: Tenno

 

Take us beyond the vastness of space my Tenno,

Beyond the darkness in search of light, 

Do not hesitate now Tenno, 

Spread your wings and take flight.

 

The stars will guide you my Tenno,

Do not be afraid of the unknown,

For the powers of the void are deep within you Tenno,

Once you have mastered that power, let it be known.

 

My days with you are not long, my dear Tenno,

So keep moving forward, never falter,

For all I have left is you my dear Tenno,

It is time for you to begin a new chapter.

 

Go on, go forth my Tenno,

Pass on the light that you bring,

To save your brothers and sisters Tenno,

Muster up your courage, don't forget your training,

Tenno.

 



Inspo:  If you can't tell already, this is based on the Lotus's perspective, before everything that happened (tryna keep it spoiler free aight, for the new players). Basically the rundown of it is a "what if" situation. For instance, what if all this time, she loved her tennos like her own children, but never showed it because she knew that someday she'll have to become what she is (at the current state) and she didn't want us to get too attached? to save our skin. To do what's right (hint hint) when the time comes, with no hesitation? That's all, I think I went off theme but hey, I had fun writing this!

The bow, The ship, 

The crack of the captain's whip, 

The sea, The tide

The treasures untold we'll find, 

The gun, The sword, 

We battle against the hoard, 

Through day, Through night, 

We follow the winds to fight. 

 

(Chorus) 

Fly through the sky, 

Piloting the ships of olde, 

The conquest up high, 

The burning heat and freezing cold, 

Soldiers united, 

Saviors above, 

The tenno might

Will hold the light, 

We'll bring the system hope tonight. 

 

The ice, The snow

The string of the archers' bow, 

The life, The pain, 

The cold humdrum of rain, 

The shiels, The spear, 

The tenno can feel no fear, 

Till dawn, We slave, 

For the people we save. 

 

(Chorus x2)

Here's mine! Hope people like it!

Heat the engines, board the ship

Sword and blades are on our hips

Stars both above and below

Gliding past like falling snow

 

We ride the dark and fight the cold

Past relays new and planets old

Tenno fly into the night

Engulfed and consumed by void’s light

 

The Railjacks appear, filling empty space.

Quiet vacuum has been replaced

With the roar of fire, and scraping steel

Grineer they fight and fates they seal.

 

But guns and fire are but one,

Of ways they make the Corpus run.

When enemy ships fill the sky,

Unleash the Archwings, let them fly!

 

We ride the dark and fight the cold

Past relays new and planets old.

Tenno fly into the night

Engulfed and consumed by void’s light.

 

These servants made gods who helped us free

Ourselves from bonds and slavery.

Now we serve them, when we can,

Though we are flesh and but man.

 

They hid away, a dreamless sleep,

When the void called them to the deep.

But now they wake, worlds torn by war,

And remind us what they were created for.

 

We ride the dark and fight the cold

Past relays new and planets old

Tenno fly into the night

Engulfed and consumed by void’s light

 

We ride the dark and fight the cold

Past relays new and planets old

Tenno fly into the night

Engulfed and consumed by void’s light!

<Chorus>

Set our bow towards Empyrean

For our Mother we must stay strong

Thrust the engines, unleash the vortex

To the future this is our corpus

<Chorus>

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With rising tides and rusted bone

We set sail through the seas alone

[Chorus]

Seal the ruptures, slay the guests

To put silence to Cy’s unrest

[Chorus]

Omni's ready, Slingshot loaded

The Grineer wish they never goaded

[Chorus]

Full ahead, no turning back

To our foes we press the attack

[Chorus]

Children lost, the void did call

Now as heroes rise up from fall

[Chorus]

Swallow the silence, abundant in space

For with time the war we face

[Chorus]

Edited by RayRizen
Thought i'd flush it out more and improve on the beat i'm aiming for, plus clear up some space providing the chorus only once.

Railjack Away
(To the tune of Haul Away Joe)

When I was a Tenno small
A new Cephalon told me,
(Cy said) Way, go to Dock, we'll find parts, Tenno
That if I went to kill the Drones
His past now, he would tell me
(Cy said) Way, we’re away, off to space now, Tenno

Way, haul away, the Railjack is a-building,
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll fly off, Tenno!
Railjack away, the engine is a-roaring,
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll fly off, Tenno!

Cy remembered his old crew
Before the Old War finished...
(Cy said) Wait, check the weave, why’d they persish, Tenno
No Cephalon can do this job
So Cy will take the skies back
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll fly off, Tenno!

Railjack away, we'll head for Gokstad Crewships
(Cy said) Archwings away, we'll fight them, Tenno!
Railjack away, we'll fight these fights together
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll win this, Tenno!

The pilot’s job, to set our course
The gunner’s, find and down them
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll win this, Tenno!
The Archwing’s off to board their ships
We all will do our part, now
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll win this, Tenno!

Railjack away, we’re heading to the veil now
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll find her, Tenno!
Way, far away, our Lotus can’t remember
(She said) Tenno: away, my sentients: come home!

Railjack away, we’ll always stick together
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll fight them, Tenno!
Railjack away, we’re preparing for a New War
(Cy said) Railjack away, we'll win this, Tenno!
 

Inspiration: I wanted this to tell the whole Empyrean story, not just part of it. Tenno sing it to remember, to relive, and to keep fighting.

A slow methodical rhythm.

The crew on the Railjack comes and goes.
It's more than a ship, and more than a home.

With the nav consoles gleaming light.
We'll enter the void day and night.

We hear Cephalon Cy's beckoning call.
The incoming fighters begin to fall.

Our Omni-gel at our sides.
The boarding party is sure to die.

Our objective is clear we cannot fail.
The origin system is where we sail.

We light up the night one by one.
For the children of Cetus, we aim our guns.

We'll head back to port when our job is done.
Knowing in our hearts that the war is won.

Start engines and prepare for the long haul!
The stars they will answer,
The stars they will guide us,
Follow the Void’s call!

Armaments ready we stand fast and tall.
Grineer they will answer,
Grineer they will find us,
Follow the Void’s call!

Learn well from those lost and fight for us all.
The past she will answer,
The past she will mind us,
Follow the Void’s call!

The cold heart of deep space surrounds our souls.
Our courage will answer,
Our courage will push us
Beyond what we know.

Sentient malice bleeds, strikes, and divides.
All Tenno will answer,
All Tenno stand by us,
The Void is on our side.

Dream of that which unites us all!
With blood we will answer,
Our Warframes will bind us,
Follow the Void’s call!

We've got Cephalons... to lead us to some hidden worlds, all blocked off with ships, and ready to be explored. We'll kill the grineer, and take all of their precious booty. Then we purge the airlocks. And then we'll sail away. Yarr harr, fiddle Dee Dee. If you like to sail and be free, you are a Tenno
