      Mentions a ship, and for some reason strikes me as seaworthy.

                  Here's an old classic

                  Drunken Sailor

                  What shall we do with a drunken sailor
                  What shall we do with a drunken sailor
                  What shall we do with a drunken sailor
                  Early in the morning!

                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Early in the morning oh well

                  Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter
                  Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter
                  Put him in the bed with the captain's daughter
                  Early in the morning

                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Hurray and up she rises
                  Early in the morning

                        Jacques Brel is in a league of his own! Covers/tributes rarely do him justice

                            I've always liked this song. Seems to have a LOT of verses, but it's been squeezed down to like 3 minutes because progress I guess.

                            I like this version as opposed to the traditional.




                            This is an interesting version as well. Especially when she gets to "shave his balls with a rusty razor"




                            And this one is from a game, and it's a drunken whaler.




                            The evolution of this tune is really incredible. It's from the early 18th century, claimed by Ireland. Having been a sailor I know very well how easily I could be assumed to be drunk on dry land after as little as 2 weeks at sea. Your equilibrium attempts to predict the direction of the next wave. As long as the ship is on a steady course, you can begin to feel the rhythm of the ocean.

                            If you're doing a lot of maneuvers for "training" (and to watch the reservists or midshipmen hurl 3 meals a day), you'll be whacked by a doorway or bulkhead with some regularity. There were times I wish I had a helmet. Steel doesn't "give". When you're back on dry land, your whole body is still programmed with the waves. So you're walking along, and the earth takes a roll to port! Your arms go out instantly, drawing even more attention to your obvious condition. Yet another totally sober drunken sailor.

                            Air crews with long back to back missions probably suffer something similar. Except the flight attendants, they're actually drunk.
