Hey, this is great, I enjoyed the carry on up above. Submitted on January 26th by Trevor Jennings. Its a funny thing, I happened to have Spongebob Squarepants on a few days ago and, I heard a concertina playing in the background a familiar little tune, of which I did great research on and it came out to be this tune.
I wonder now if the other sea chanties they play as background have the same traditional origin…. Submitted on July 18th by tallship. Their conversation over their ale naturally relates to their exploits of setting, casting and rowing. When two claim the distinction of being the "best man in the wark", the dispute can only be decided by combat. These contests are often severe, but never succeeded by malice, for they are remarkably friendly to one another, being, to use their own language, all keel-bullies or brothers.
The fund which they have established for the relief of each other, during sickness and old age, and also for the relief of their widows and children, is highly honourable to themselves, and affords an example to others worthy of imitation. The wives and daughters of this laborious race are also strong and industrious.
They usually wear woollen or cotton bed-gowns, with a silk kerchief, of various colours, thrown carelessly over their shoulders, and another tied around their heads. Some of them sweep the keels : these are called keel-deeters. Many of them are employed in delivering ballast, chalk, kelp etc and are, like their husbands, uncommonly hardy and active. The seamen engaged in the coal-trade are distinguished as a most robust, active, and fearless race of men.
The nutritious victuals on which they subsist, and the hard labour they perform, brace their sinews, and give them an unequalled degree of strength; while from their hazardous and rapid voyages, they soon become expert in seamanship, and accustomed to every kind of danger. Hence the coal-trade has always been esteemed as an invaluable nursery for seamen, and the hardy and bold sailors it furnishes constitute the pride and strength of the British navy.
