More shanties

Postby Esme MacIasgair » Sat Jun 25, 2011 11:08 pm

At the GEF there was a good talk in the Bruid awning about us not singing enough shanties!
So here's my contribution!

Man your boats, leave for the Whale
What care we for calm or gale?
Aye, tak' a drink as lang's ye can:
Whiskey's guid amang het ale;

Heave ya ho, and away we go
Heave ya ho, and away-oh!
Heave ya ho, and away we go
Heave ya ho, and away-oh!

Wave tae yer lass: they're a' the same
Mag an' Meg and Jeannie and Jane.
Oh how they love us when we hae fish,
They love us less when we hae nane


What care we for wind or storm?
What care we for gale-oh?
Gin we maun haul a' the creel ower the side
We'll drink the milk o' the Whale-oh;

Þaðan koma meyjar margs vitandi þrjár ór þeim sæ, er und þolli stendr;
Urð hétu eina, aðra Verðandi, skáru á skíði, Skuld ina þriðju;
þær lög lögðu, þær líf kuru alda börnum, örlög seggja. - Völuspá
