Beyond awesome! This brings to mind a song(s) by an American folksinger named S. J. Tucker. She did the "Wendy Trilogy", a trio of songs telling the real tale of Wendy, Peter Pan, and Captain Hook. Of how she becomes the pirate Red Handed Jill, takes over Hook's ship and has Pan bring her lost girls for her crew. Though she eventually returns home to England, she leaves her ship in the hands of her first mate.
In honor of your Pirate Ladies, a few of the lyrics to send them dancing on their way:
I will sing you pirate songs and tell you pirate stories
of Wendy when she'd had her fill of Peter Pan and the other Lost Boys
Now, Wendy never was a girl to go against her friends
But recall when Hook had kidnapped her and promised no good end
Surrounded then by pirates and asked to join the crew,
the story goes she told them no, but not all tales are true!
Wouldn't she rather climb the rigging and wield a cutlass bright,
Wouldn't she rather have her own sweet say o'er wrong and right?
"Your decision, girl," says Hook. "You think you'll pass the test?"
The scurvy crew are snickering, but Wendy answers "Yes!
You set me any task, old man, and watch me see it through.
You've never known the likes of piracy a girl can do!" ...<snip>
</snip>...Wendy's ship, it prospers, and the girls are eating well,
A roving band of sisters, singing songs and raising 'ell.
The ship is full of pirates, but each one can keep her head.
Due to this small miracle and thanks to Wendy's pirate school,
Brand new tales of derring-do and Wendy start to spread...<snip>
</snip>...Nearly all the crew let Wendy know they cannot wait
But stoic stand a handful, including the first mate.
Green-eyed Sue before her captain asks to plainly speak her mind:
"It's sooner I'd lay down my life than leave this ship behind!"
"A simple life of growing up is surely not for me.
Working as a sailor's been the first time I am free.
So by your leave dear Captain, I will be a pirate still
And carry on the legacy of our Red-handed Jill!"
Wendy smiles a smile and says "I'll miss you, dearest one.
But as this journey ends I see a new one has begun!
So carry on as admiral and Captain in my stead.
Guide your crew with a steady hand, and always keep your head."
Thus Sue becomes the Captain and begins another tale.
Her bonny crew decide to teach the Lost Boys how to sail.
She rules the fleets of Faerie and she reigns in Neverland,
A pirate queen e'er hatching schemes with Tink and Peter Pan.
Tales are told of Sue and Wendy to keep all girls' brothers kind
Unto their darling sisters. For, if they are a mind
To torment and to torture and to hair-pull and to tease,
One night she might turn pirate and run off to sail the seas!
