It must be the season for reminiscing. This is another ditty I grew up with. Of course, my dad was a sailor. We'd make up our own verses and the song could last much longer than "99 Bottles of Beer" ever dreamed possible.
"What Do You Do with a Drunken Sailor" (or "What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor") is a traditional sea-faring work song that dates back at least as far as 1824-25 when the music was first published in "Cole’s Selection of Favourite Cotillions."
Rapalje is a Celtic band from The Netherlands. They play Irish, Scottish and Dutch folk music on instruments like fiddle, tin whistle, gitouki, squeezebox, mouth organ, bodhrán and tea-chest bass.
Pass the rum. I'm in the mood to dance a hornpipe.
