"Drunken Sailor" is among the best-known of the sea shanties and became a popular song among non-sailors during the 20th century. The infectious tune has lyrics that ask the question, "What do we do with a drunken sailor early in the morning?" Each subsequent verse suggests various forms of punishment for the poor chap. This spirited arrangement is sure to delight audiences with a sparkling and energetic setting of this familiar tune. (1:25) "Variants on a Sea Shanty" correlates to Book 2, Level 3 of Sound Innovations for Concert Band.
