Drunken Sailor arranged for Treble Recorder & Piano.

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.

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
