An arrangement for classical Brass Quintet of a popular English sea shanty with variations.

This arrangement makes a great ’lollipop’ for your next performance.

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 Sailors 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 soberingor castigating, or simply abusingthe sailor.

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 songs 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
