A drunken sailor aboard La Hispaniola

“What will we do with a drunken sailor” performed by The Irish Rovers, an old classic that combines with R.L.Stevenson’s “Treasure Island” storytelling.

Design a funny coreography that goes along with the verses for the children to grab all the meaning and get ready to have lots of fun!

Lyrics (www.metrolyrics.com)

What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Shave his belly with a rusty razor
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

Put him in the longboat until he’s sober
Put him in the longboat until he’s sober
Put him in the longboat until he’s sober
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

Stick him in the scrubbers with a hosepipe on him
Stick him in the scrubbers with a hosepipe on him
Stick him in the scrubbers with a hosepipe on him
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

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

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

That’s what we do with a drunken sailor
That’s what we do with a drunken sailor
That’s what we do with a drunken sailor
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Way hay and up she rises
Early in the morning

 

Come Little Children

This month we will have Medieval times as a thematic core for our workshops.

“Come little children”, a beautiful folk song in the magnificent version by ERUTAN serves as a great ambient creator to warm any medieval workshop up (hehe, too many adjectives in a row, but that’s exactly what it is – beautiful, magnificent and great!)

Welcome you all!
