Binks' Sake is a song that was commonly sung amongst the pirates of old. The song is meant to lift the spirits of those who sing it. Being a pirate of the old days, Brook knows this song quite well and sings it most chances he is given and he was the first person to sing the lyrics of the song.[1] Luffy knows this song from hearing Shanks and his crew singing it. Robin had also heard of this song, having listened to it when she was a young girl.[2]

The song was also Yorki's favorite song as well as Laboon's.[3] When the Rumbar Pirates met their end fifty years ago, they decided to use a Tone Dial they had purchased from a merchant to use their final moments to record Bink's Sake for Laboon.[4]

It is shown that this song can be played in a variety of ways on different instruments for example when it is played on a piano, in a major key, it can be a jolly party song that everyone can sing, but when it is being played on a violin (Brook's main instrument) in a minor key it can be viewed as a ballad, a farewell song, or as a requiem.

Binkusu no sake wo, todoke ni yuku yo
Umikaze kimakase namimakase
Shio no mukou de, yuuhi mo sawagu
Sora nya wa wo kaku, tori no uta
Going to deliver Binks' Sake!
Following the sea breeze! Riding on the waves!
Far across the salty depths! The merry evening sun!
The birds sing as they draw circles in the sky !
さよなら港 つむぎの里よ♪
ドンと一丁唄お 船出の唄♪
金波銀波も しぶきにかえて♪
おれ達ゃゆくぞ 海の限り♪
Sayonara minato, Tsumugi no sato yo

Kinpa-ginpa mo shibuki ni kaete
Oretacha yuku zo, umi no kagiri
Farewell to the harbor, To my old hometown
Lets all sing out with a Don! As the ship sets sail
Waves of gold and silver dissolve to salty spray
As we all set sail to the ends of the sea
ビンクスの酒を 届けにゆくよ♪
我ら海賊 海割ってく♪
波を枕に 寝ぐらは船よ♪
帆に旗に 蹴立てるはドクロ♪
Binkusu no sake wo, todoke ni yuku yo
Warera kaizoku, umi watteku
Nami wo makura ni, negura wa fune yo
Ho ni hata ni ketateru wa dokuro
Going to deliver Binks' Sake!
We are pirates sailing through the Sea!
The waves are our pillows, The ship our roost
Flying the proud skull on our flags and our sails
嵐がきたぞ 千里の空に♪
波がおどるよ ドラムならせ♪
おくびょう風に 吹かれりゃ最後♪
明日の朝日が ないじゃなし♪
Arashi ga kita zo, senri no sora ni
Nami ga odoru yo, DORAMU narase
Okubyoukaze ni fukarerya saigo
Asu no asahi ga nai ja nashi
Now comes a storm through the far-off sky
Now the waves are dancing, Beat upon the drums
If you lose your nerve this breath could be your last
But if you just hold on, The morning sun will rise

Waving our goodbyes, we'll never meet again!
But don't look so down, For tomorrow night the moon will also rise!

Doesn't matter who you are, Someday you'll just be bones
Never-Ending, Ever-wandering, Our funny Traveling tale!

Original VersionEdit

Before Chapter 488, parts of this song appeared but due to the nature of how they appeared the song had many loose parts.

English versionEdit

Go and deliver1 Binks' Sake2
Entrust your heart to the waves and sea breeze
Even the setting sun revels beyond the tides
And in the sky, the song of laughing birds

1Also translated as "Going to Deliver".
2Also translated as "Binks' brew", "Binks' Hard liquor". The loose translation is due to "Sake" being the Japanese word for all alcoholic drinks in general, not just Japanese alcoholic drinks as the west has come to see the word as.

Viz Media VersionEdit

Yo-hohoho, Yohohohoo,
Yo-hohoho, Yohohohoo,
Yo-hohoho, Yohohohoo,
Yo-hohoho, Yohohohoo,

Gather up all the crew!
Time to ship out Bink's brew!
Sea wind blows to where,
Who knows?
The waves will be our guide!
O'er across the ocean's tide,
The sunset is goin' wild,
See the sky! The birds singing in circles passing by!

Bid farewell to weaver's town!
Say so long to port renowned!
Sing a song, it won't be long, before we're casting off!
Cross the gold and silver waves
Changin' into water sprays!
Sailing out on our journey,
To the ends of the sea!

Gather up all the crew!
Time to ship out Bink's brew!
Pirates we, we'll divide and conquer all the seas!
With the waves to rest our heads,
The ship beneath us as our bed!
Hoisted high up on the mast our jolly roger flies!

Somewhere in the endless sky,
A storm has started comin' by!
Waves are dancing, having fun,
Time to sound the drums!
If we let blow winds of fear, then the end of us is near!
Even so, tomor-row the sun will rise again!

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,

Gather up all the crew!
Time to ship out Bink's brew!
Could be today, could be tomorrow,
Twilight dreaming.
No longer now can we see, shadow hands still waving free
Why worry, there's sure to be a moonlit night again!

Gather up all the crew!
Time to ship out Bink's brew!
Sing a song, a lively song,
For all the oceans wide!
After all is said and done,
We all end up skeletons!
Endless, aimless, the story on the uproarious seas!

Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho,
Yo-hohoho, Yo-hohoho.

Early One PieceEdit

Even when Brook first showed up, the song was complete. Oda thought of the lyrics first and wanted to add the melody later but he just couldn't do it, and didn't want the song to sound bad when it would eventually be featured in the anime. So he went to get the melody written first by Kouhei Tanaka, a big name in the anime music field. He intended to make Thriller Bark "in a year or so" and be shown then. However, like many things in One Piece, it ended up being seen 4 or 5 years later. Oda also intended it to be a sailing song that could be included in text books but because it contains the word 'sake' it is impossible.[5]

Kouhei Tanaka, the composer who first designed and wrote this song, was asked about this in an interview, and he said that he tried to make it both lighthearted and sad at the same time.
