Favourite Shanty?

Chicken on a raft is crap even when sung by the late Cyril Tawny
I like shanties but do not have a favourite.

Pretty much most of Shep Woolly’s songs, IMO.
Met him at the International Festival of the Sea in ‘97 (I think), top bloke.

Oh, Mister Lobsterman, home from the sea,
Have you got a lobster you will sell to me?
Chorus:
Singing ai-diddly-ai, shit or bust,
Never let your bollocks dangle in the dust.
Yes sir, yes sir, I have three,
And the biggest of the bastards I will sell to thee.
Chorus
So I took the lobster home, but I couldn't find a dish,
So I put him in the pot where the missus takes a piss.
Chorus
In the middle of the night, as you well know,
The missus got up for to have a heave ho.
Chorus
Well, the missus gave a groan, and the missus gave a grunt,
Now she got the bloody lobster swinging from her cunt.
Chorus
The missus grabbed the brush, and I grabbed the broom,
And we chased the bloody lobster all around the room.
Chorus
We hit it on the head, we hit it on the side,
We hit that bloody lobster until the bastard died.
Chorus
Oh, the story has a moral, and this is it,
Always take a look before you take a shit.
Chorus
That's the end of my story, there ain't no more,
There's an apple up my arsehole, and you can have the core.
Chorus
Down in Nagasaki the monkey fucked the cat,
And all the cat could do was fuck the monkey back.
Chorus
Drink it down, down, down, down

There is a famous dit about an officer's Steward called Buckwheat Harris who was detailed off by the captain of an old "T" class diesel boat out in SM4 Australia to babysit his children while he took his wife to some official function. Buckwheat didn't waste the evening reading bedtime stories but taught the youngsters the Lobster Song so they could sing it to Mum and Dad when they got home. The dit goes that he was never told to babysit ever again.

Never heard of it before, even though I'm a big fan of Monty Python.
