April 3rd

Got through all the work and home commitments and finally catching up with myself. Managed to finally get round to writing the sea shanty. How random are they? Just decided to stop stressing and just write something, and decided to keep it traditional. Think the repetition was a problem for me. For what it’s worth, here it is:

Boys pull together, make light of this weather
Land ho! Let the wind blow
We’re heading for home through the spray and the foam
Land ho! Let the wind blow
We’ve been everywhere but our home’s the most fair
Land ho! Let the wind blow
We pulled on the ropes round the Cape of Good Hope
Land ho! Let the wind blow
My love awaits as we’re crossing the straits
Land ho! Let the wind blow
Three long years gone, now I’m heading back home
Land ho! Let the wind blow
Now I’ll stay ashore and I’ll wander no more
Land ho! Let the wind blow
