The crew of the Airship Manawatu take to the skies again, with another Celtic rock romp.
Watch the video here:


Sky pirates take Whanganui (x2)

When there's nothing to do, we assemble our crew
We've got an airship, sturdy and sleek
C'mon, let's go for a ride
Casting off lines in the morning, Floating on the northerly breeze

Sky pirates take Whanganui (x2)

Heading through Rangitikei
Passing over Sanson and Bulls
Giving a wide berth to Turakina
We're crazy, not suicidal

Whanganui bombed our zeppelin yards
Now it's time to settle the score
Sky pirates take Whanganui (x2)

Accordion solo

The zeppelin towers of Whanganui
Strike through the heart of the clouds

Sky pirates take Whanganui

Well we bring our airship to bear
Vengeance borne on the air
The people below gape and stare
As we leap overboard

Sky pirates take Whanganui (x lots)
