What shall we do with a drunken sailor
Last updated: 25.01.17

"What shall we do with a drunken sailor" was learned at primary school is very well known here in Germany, I believe it is also a school song, and I sing it very often. The version I sing has eight verses which I have picked up along the way and does not correspond to anything I've seen in print.
Master Mariner W.B. Whall in his authoritative Sea Songs Ships and Shanties interestingly only gives two verses. This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook but not yet in my personal repertoire
