"What shall we do with a drunken sailor" was learned at primary school and is very well known here in Germany where I believe it is also a school song. 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.
It was also sung in the Idle Fellows
and by the The Herminas
One unforgettable performance was with the The Vegesack Whalermen
during Ceilidh 2003
where we demonstrated on stage exactly what one does with a drunken sailor who in this case was our Deern, Susi Wollin. We beat her, drenched her and even hauled her up by her arms and legs! Good one Susi!!
