A new and exciting arrangement of a classic English Sea Shanty ’What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor’, arranged for Xylophone and Piano.

Great chart for your next concert, with which to entertertain your audience with.

Drunken Sailor was a work song often sung when raising a sail or raising the anchor, which is the reference for Up She Rises in the song’s chorus. Such songs were the only ones allowed in the Royal Navy. Most often, only two or three verses were sung but verses were often added until the task was completed.

Drunken Sailor is a famous traditional sea shanty also known as What Shall We Do with a Drunken Sailor? It is now rarely called by its other name Sailor’s Holiday.

The theme of the song is quite self-explanatory. It begins with the question, "What shall we do with a drunken sailor, early in the morning?" (Or sometimes "What do you do," etc.) Each verse thereafter suggests a method of sobering–or castigating, or simply abusing the sailor.
