The Space Shanty Contest [Winners Announced]!

Recommended Posts

(Chorus)

Through the void and skies, our Tenno flies

Bringing balance with demise

Although chaos always tries

We Tenno still arise 

 

(Verse 1)

From corpus and grineer

To sentient and infested

Our Tenno bring fear

And cannot be bested

 

(Chorus repeated) 

 

(Verse 2)

The railjack our vessel

The systems to explore 

Our warframes our  trestle

To understand our existence more 

 

(Chorus repeated) 

 

(Verse 3)

Young minds in our prime

Dreaming for so long

Uniting after a time

From the Void, hear our song!

 

(Final chorus)

Made a sea of thieves styled shanty. Its my first song so pardon if things are wrong. Enjoy:

 

Made in void, of golden starlight
Made, as one, we serve the jade light
We, go on, for no one ruler
But we'll soar together


(Short pause)

Steadfast, foes are coming
Cannons roar, hulls are failing
We'll all, have to stand here
If we soar together

(Music)

All in the skies shall know our story
Sing, on the wars we won within we
All shall fight for mother and honor
When we soar together

Words for wars have been spoken
Ancient beings have awoken
Soar until our blades have broken
We will soar together.

(End)

|good luck to you all|

I thought I heard the lotus say

leave him teno leave him

tomorrow you will get to slay

but it's time for you to leave him

leave him teno leave him

The mission is hard and the drops are low 

Leave him teno leave him

oh leave him teno leave him

 

(For the tune look up leave her Johnny by Sean Dagher and La Nef)

Look ahead, look a corpus ship
Shoot high! Shoot low!
Quick we need limbo 
Grab your guns and your swords 
We can't carry on anymore 
Get inside take a look 
Try and find the warframe Baruuk

Quick! Left side! Right side!
We need to turn around 
Otherwise this ship will sink down
Grab your things and your archwings
Otherwise we won't we won't obtain the nitain

Плывя по течению, мы сталкиваемся с бедами бездны,

И каждый раз мы встаем на ноги! 

Как Сталкер после поражения?

Нам трудно тащить такой груз на плечах

Но мы всегда будем вместе, и не важно и не важно как мы будем счастливы!

Рино в помощь? 

Нам не нужны враги, нам не нужны соперники, мы ищем друзей, мы ищем связи!

В компании Тринити и Гренделя крекера?

1, 2, 3, 4 Ого какая у нас большая семья!

Сколько нас!

Жаль, что жизнь не долгая, а воспоминания коротки ...

My Railjack on High: Queen of the Sky

She may not be pretty,
She may not be fine,
She may shake, and rattle,
And shimmy, and whine,
Her coat may be rusted,
And no longer shine,
But make no mistake,
She's Queen of the sky.

(Chorus)
My Railjack on high.
She's Queen of the sky. (X2)

If adventures you wish,
She's in full supply.
Destiny awaits,
And she is our guide. 
Her engines shall roar,
Along we shall glide,
Majestic and unfettered,
Like Gods of the sky.

(Chorus)
My Railjack on high.
We're God's of the sky.(X2)

So arm the turrets,
And ready for flight.
Her Majesty will court us,
On through the night.
Enemies shall come,
From left, and from right,
But rest assured Tenno,
She'll stand last in the fight.

(Chorus)
My Railjack on high,
Stands last in the fight. (X2)

Aboard the Rail jack! 
Aboard, aboard aboard!
We may explore!
Explore, explore explore!

We may adventure through the void!
The void the void!
And now we will curse,
Every enemy that gets in our way!

Keep traveling through,
as we save the day!
Now we abort!
Abort,abort abort!

The skies are a messy blur as we make our departure,
All ripples come forth and strike
Against the ship's cast brass figurehead.
    In such inky night, that proud dame alight,
    Dear Lotus!  The thrill, the thrill, the thrill
    The thrill of such a sight.

Through starboard screens, the endless horizon
Teasingly casting the broadest grin,
As all hull aglow gathers in its reflection
Quite untroubled by the din

Rocking the ship from side to side
The raucous causes quite a stirr,
It makes no sense for me to hide
Battle calls for sure !

Aboard, and on deck,
The nimble fencing of steel aglint
Tiles a velvety sheen,
Like dropped red curtains over an unsightly scene,
Unsheathed edges yet dripping with blood,
Blades sliding through foes take on a new tint,
So tarnished is the silver.

Timelessly turns the wheel to new solar systems,
Or to leap swiflty between ennemy vessels waiting to bloom
A grand bouquet the loyal Tenno offer to the Lotus's person
So much of a fleet noiselessly turning to blossom
The silence ablaze with searing flowers of destruction

Gently pulsing, the orgone accumulators cast her into the depths
Of still, cold, space,
That proud figurehead,
Into the dreadful nightmares
That we must face

(This ought to be some kind of chorus so players have less reluctance drawing their omnis : )
Crew tend to the fire and seal up those breaches,
The catastrophic failure is imminent,
And the forge needs some kindling
Cover up those cables and mop up those invaders
Or I'll feed you through the "vent".

By RedVelvetPanda, first version confirmed 27/01/2020
More importantly, I'd just like to thank DE for their vision and perseverence. Been there, seen this, did that for the past six years. Guys, you're the ones who rock this ship ( ;

Well it's good that 250 is the limit 

Four Tenno on the Dead Man's Chest,
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Kuva!
Drink and the Stalker had done for the rest,
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Kuva!
The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike,
And the bosun brained by a marlinspike,
And the cookie's throat was marked belike
It had been clutched by fingers there,
And there they lay, all good, dead Grineer,
Like a break o 'day in a boozin' den
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Kuva!

Four Tenno of 'em stiff and stark
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva!
Three of the crew had the Stalker's mark!
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva!
Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red
And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes
Looking up at paradise
All souls bound just contrawise
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva.

Four Tenno of 'em good and true
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva!
Ev'ry man jack could ha 'sailed with Old Pew,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva!
There was chest on chest of Corpus Credit
With a ton of Platinum in the middle hold
And the cabins riot of stuff untold,
And they lay there that took the plum
With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb
While we shared all by the rule of thumb,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of Kuva!

(sung to the tune of The Boatmen)

 

Oh, the Orbitor, she keeps to dock. the junctions fit to connect with shock.

The corpus hats will all fall off. The Lotus guides us all!

 

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

 

The solaris dont dance but sure can sing. Real odd jobs for tenno, see?

They work all day to not lose faith, will you save them from disgrace! 

 

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

 

The plains of eidelon sure are fun! Catching fish one by one!

gotta build the perfect zaw! All to rip the grenier's arms off!

 

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

Hi Ho the tenno go! blasting through the stars on their archwings so!

Corpus corpses, Grineer graves

These be things a Tenno craves,

By bullet or blade; by bow or glaive

We send our foes beyond.

 

Through blood and bone, with rusted chrome

We've forged our fate and made it known,

Before the boils are overgrown,

We send our foes beyond.

The 250 word limit only applies to the shanty itself! Please feel free to dive into details about what inspired your shanty 😄

Submissions shouldn't be based on existing shanties. Original lyrics only, please! Let that creativity flow

Yeah, tenno are these noble ninjas, but really, we commit genocide on a daily basis and wipe out thousands of grineer for a chance at a loot drop, so I figured that a tenno pirate would be pretty cold to the enemy and hungry for booty. (sort of like real pirates?) I also wanted to make the song super full of energy, something that you can shout at the top of your lungs and stomp your feet to as you pull the trigger in time to the beat, which itself would be reminiscent of the crash of waves out at sea. I haven't read anybody else's shanty in fear that I might accidentally take inspiration from them, so time to binge them all! 😄 (c'mon Ivara prime!)

 

 

                  The Saber’s Rally

 

My brothers and sisters, my family of Tenno,

A cephalon found me and filled up my ear

With stories of railjacks and orokin battles.

It’s time that this system remembered its fear!

 

Far from the solar rail’s narrowing confines,

Filled to the brim with a spaceworthy crew

Our shiny new ship seeks to ransack the heavens.

None dare oppose us, and yet if they do…

 

Boom! Crash! The gunnery blazing!

Hey! Ho! Repairing the hull.

Fly! High! The crewship exploding!

Strike! Now! We wipe out them all!

 

So on to Veil Proxima, steadily blasting

Through fleets of Grineer we will carve us a trail!

The Sentient threat cannot stop our advances;

With loot on the line we will jump any rail!

 

For the Ostrons with markets in Cetus! (Load cannons!)

For the dreamers asleep in their pods! (Slingshot up!)

Solaris enslaved upon Venus! (Together!)

We’ll win! Any! War! Oh!

 

Boom! Crash! The gunnery blazing!

Hey! Ho! Repairing the hull.

Fly! High! The crewship exploding!

Strike! Now! We wipe out them all!

 

Come Tenno! Answer my call! To arms!

We sail at the morning’s first light.

A galaxy full of our plunder is waiting!

Planets of dissonance ripe for the taking!

To arms! To arms!

We sail! We sail!

 

Boom! Crash! The gunnery blazing!

Hey! Ho! Repairing the hull.

Fly! High! The crewship exploding!

Strike! Now! We wipe out them all!

Them all!

Them all!

Rail! Jack!

Answering the sentient overflow

Loading nice and slow

Sometimes going solo,

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

Man in the wall say "Hello Kiddo",

Spooked we run down below

Fighting the boarders we do judo,

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

Manning her guns are our duo,

Shooting our foe

Hoping RNG will bestow,

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

With the help of the pilot she row

On the verge of tomorrow

He handles the artillery solo

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

Flying commando,

Through space he goes

Going to Calypso

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

When the ship is low, 

Utilizing his magic gizmo

And our cargo,

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

 

These are the roles,

They all combo

To make the ship flow,

Oh oh oh, through the void she go

((Author's note: No idea why it's formatted like this. I can't stop it from being so. Oh well I guess. Enjoy my submission.))

((Inspiration: I really liked that in Warframe, farming isn't limited. You can do many things to get certain things, and while it isn't perfect, I do appreciate the diverity of it all and wanted to show my appreciation for Fortuna as well, as I really came back to playing the game after Hildryn came out and my friend fell in love with farming her kinda. Plus, I just like shanties.))

(Chorus):

Oh Orokin brave,

Oh Orokin bold,
Tonight we plunder!

The Void in Full.

 

Crystals of Argon

And Credits of New
Tonight we plunder
In Neptune’s dark Blue.

(Verse 1):

With our Blades so Sharp,

Our Weapons laced Gold,

We’ll Salvage great Venus

With this Crew so Bold.

 

We’ll save Orb Vallas,
We’ll pay off their debts,
We’ll tell ol’ Eudico

“Tis was no sweat!”
 

(Chorus):


Oh Orokin brave,

Oh Orokin bold,
Tonight we plunder!

The Void in Full.

 

Crystals of Argon

And Credits of New
Tonight we plunder
In Neptune’s dark Blue.

(Verse 2):

Little Duck the feisty,

She told us “Begone!
You must hurry along,

So we may sing our song!”

Little she knew,
Of our merry little tune!
We sang it all the way,
Over to great Neptune!

 

(Chorus):
Oh Orokin brave,

Oh Orokin bold,
Tonight we plunder!

The Void in Full.

 

Crystals of Argon

And Credits of New
Tonight we plunder
In Neptune’s dark Blue.

 

Crystals of Argon

And Credits of New
Tonight we plunder
In Neptune’s dark Blue.

"Our labour is duty, our labour is loyalty.

Industrious prowess, is our top priority.

Tenacious, vivacious, our might has no peer.

That's right, this one's about us...

The Grineer!

Rambunctious ramsleds, rallied by royalty.

We honor the Queen with our unrivalled cruelty.

Ready the ships for a full on offense,

Spare no expense and dispense ordinance!

Take to the stars, in our chariots of war.

Do it for Vay Hek, for Ruk and for Vor.

The crown of our fleet, our glorious Galleon.

A metaphorical unbridled stallion.

Our fighters are fearless, we'll never succumb,

To those impudent, insolent, trash Tenno scum!

When we rise up, the whole system will hear,

Our thunderous cry, all glory to Grineer!"

Railjack 
~ A Simple But Elegant Piece~ 
By Alba Meira

Here comes a color we've never seen before Hurrah! Hurrah!
A Crew of our own Hurrah! Hurrah!
Through the cosmos we go past, Shooting down every Grineer to their last. Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurr-Rah Rah!

Whether it be through free flight or to Earth or Saturn or Proxima Veil Hurrah Hurrah!
We'll soar through the skies and we'll give them Hell! Hurrah! Hurrah!
From the corners of deep space this is how we'll win the space race! Hurrah Rah Rah Rah,Dun Dun Dun Hurrah!

 

I had the classic tune in my head and applied my own lyrics based upon that. It felt simple yet appropriate.

The Traveler's Way

 

Around and 'round the world again, it is the traveler's way

To go on and on, for far too long; where, they will not say.

Though they venture far and wide, still they cannot find

A final place to rest and hide, from the Master's knowing eyes.

But enter, enter! You have no choice, the mists claim you now,

For the Lord upon his liar's chair, watches without a sound.

Down, down, oh down below, the land writhes and seethes.

The scales turn, the balance stirs, like the storms among the seas.

Around and 'round the world again, it is the traveler's way

Faster, faster, into the misty fray. If you're lucky, and follow me, you won't be led astray.

But hush, hush for now. Danger comes our way! The darkness stirs, a Ruler of the Gate.

Cross into the misty fields, perhaps you'll get away,

For He who waits is watching. You won't escape His gaze.

The time is now, hold fast and hold tight! Cross into the dreadful haze.

But be wary dear traveler, don't ever forget. You're in the Crimson King's domain.

Around and 'round the world again, it is the traveler's way

You must push through, you must press on, before the mists will fade.

Though your heart may stir and fire burns in your veins,

And with freedom your soul may have, you'll struggle against your fate.

You will slowly come to realize, there was never an escape.

The Void it beckons, it call it does
Temptation of treasure
Victorious pleasure
This battered Railjack will do

The Void it beckons, it calls it does
The Tenno are we
We answer all pleas
This battered Railjack will defend you

The void it beckons, it calls it does
The void is a mystery not much is known
Yet we fly in war hotzones
This battered Railjack will engaige foes

The void it beckons, it calls it does
Missles and lasers destroy Grineer
While the sentients creep near
This battered Railjack will destroy them

The void it beckons, it calls it does
Alerts of breaches, impacts and fire
We tenno are lost in the void and its dire
This battered Railjack won't betray us

The void it beckons, it calls it does
This battered Railjack will hold...

-Last known transmission of a lost Railjack crew.

Out upon a vast new space

We shall find some brand new place

To bring peace to this new land 

And to give all a helping hand

 

When the sentients start to attack

Stow your fear and don’t hold back

For any threat that we shall face

We stand united to protect this place

 

When the time comes that we must make haste

We shall never lose our faith 

Get mom back oh yes we will

Or blow off her head oh what a thrill 

 

With my crew here by my side

Oh and of course there's Cephalon Cy

You can bet that we won’t hide

We’ve set our sights on the rising tide

So I wrote this in inspiration of my clans dedication to tactical alerts and other community challenges when defending our Origin System.
The context is based on my clans name, "Sanctum of Souls"

Hope you enjoy! (Should be 97 words including the title)

Sanctuary from the Veil

From the deep, do we arrive,
Give them sanctuary from the veil!
Our Guns are armed and loaded to fire,
Give them sanctuary from the veil!
Our blades are sharp as our 'Jack is fine,
Give them sanctuary from the veil!

To defend their homes, their homes are ours,
From Venus then Earth and more beyond,
We'll give them sanctuary from the veil!

From the clone, cred' slave and untamed beast,
Or the enemies from our long past deeds,
We'll guard their souls from end to end,
Give them sanctuary from the veil!

The Cat Of Nine Tails

-

As we sail the solar rails returning from the war,

We've been a little bad, with the enemy turned ashore.

‘Tis time to find a port for the discipline we need.

Where they'll make us bend and crawl and beg until we plead.

 

Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!

[Call Back]: (Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!)

As we head toward that lovely port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!

[Call Back]: (As we head toward that lovely port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!)

 

There's a place on Fortuna where the sun doesn't shine,

A shaft reaching further down than one nay care to define.

Where half-mechanical ladies in leather are seldom witnessed.

And the only name you shall ever call them by is "My Mistress".

 

Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!

[Call Back]: (Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!)

As we head toward that leather port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!

[Call Back]: (As we head toward that leather port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!)

 

'Tis here we've come to give our Mistress her due thanks.

For she has prepared to lay down the maximum of spanks.

We are not worthy, as her boots do we lick,

And deserve her title for us, those pigs of the sick.

 

Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!

[Call Back]: (Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!)

As we head toward that spankin’ port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!

[Call Back]: (As we head toward that spankin’ port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!)

 

As we leave that dark place, a few lashes added to us,

Humiliated beyond all measure, yet we speak not a wee fuss,

We'll make our Mistress proud as we slay Corpus and Grineer,

And us sick pigs will be under her whip upon returning here.

 

Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!

[Call Back]: (Time to get my whoopins for the many of our fails!)

As we head toward that sordid port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!

[Call Back]: (As we head toward that sordid port on the Cat Of Nine Tails!)

 

[All Together]: The Cat Of Nine Tails! The Cat Of Nine Tails! The Cat Of Nine Tails!

One endless leap.

The Endo

 

Cruising down space in my Railjack

Void Hole farm back on track

1 pilot, 3 Tennos at the back

About to shoot down some Exo Flak

 

True playas grind hard like you and me

We're not gonna cry over RNG

Cryophons at the front, cold and icy

OP as hell cause it's MKIII

 

Engineer got the diodes, I got the Endo

All natural from the Earth though

Flyin' sky high till flux is low

Aim's off so imma take it slow

 

Eyes lookin' red like tellurium

Lungs are turning pale like Gallium

Gunner's leeching, being a bum

But at least he brought some good rum

 

Cruising down space in my Railjack

Void Hole farm back on track

1 pilot, 3 Tennos at the back

About to shoot down some Exo Flak

 

The Endo got me feeling good

Got me to elevate and be in a better mood

Finally got Void Hole, but now stuck in a loop

Them glitches got me lookin' like a fool

 

But DE devs are the real Gs

Sent DE Helen a message and got it back, See?

So stop hating on Railjack and DE

Be happy that they give a *bleep*

 

The crew got to the dojo, feeling fine

Told them to scrap, but their minds' still high

Shoutouts to the devs, working all night

Can't wait for Tennocon and give Steve a highfive
