Drunken Sailor arranged for Descant Recorder & Piano, in an exciting and novel arrangement which should liven up your next performance!

Drunken Sailor is a famous traditional sea shanty also known as What Should We Do with the Drunken Sailor? and Sailor’s Holiday.

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.

One of the most notable aspects of the song is that the word "early" is often pronounced "earl-lie", (throughout the song, if at all).

The song is #322 on the Roud Folk Song Index.

If you play in a Recorder Consort, take a look at my Havana Rhubarb Rumba, published by the American Recorder Society; also available in my store.
