    Yes, sure, the sea doesn't need to be in the title. So if you have a sea shanty, please bring it to the Seasons.

    Here I am again. Before Tuesday
    And another I cant believe I got to first!

    I have to do a couple of pirate songs! Here's one. I'm on vacation this week so I had some time to do this today. Reverb effects, ocean sound effects from YouTube's sound library, and a soprano recorder since I don't have a tin whistle. The "Spanish sea" is mentioned several times.

    As a courtesy to Ylle, our host, I'm going to put the lyrics below for this and any other songs I do this week since English isn't her first language (I assume) and Ylle always captions her videos for those of us whose first (and only) language is English.



    The sun comes up on the Spanish sea, our homeland far behind us
    Being hunted by the King's Navy, it's sure he'd never find us
    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    We brought her into the leeward* wind and made for the Caribbean
    For thoughts of what it might have been destroys a human being
    But thoughts about the Spaniards gold and learning to desire it
    Can make a man so brash and bold he'll soon become a pirate
    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    Now a gleam came into the Captain's eyes as he spied an English clipper
    She looks the perfect shape and size, let's all aboard and strip her
    We fired a shot across her bow and eased ourselves beside her
    With our keel as close as she'd allow we swung from the deck to ride her
    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    Up she tumbles and starts to pitch and signals for assistance
    We tightened our hold another hitch and ended her resistance
    Now there's many a day on the Spanish sea I served aboard that raider
    But we never did nothing more beautifully than the way that we belayed her
    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    Her hold was hot as St. Elmo's fire, her chests were filled with treasure
    We took as much as we'd require, then took more for our pleasure
    Now there's many a day on the Spanish Main but none I hold so dear
    As the happy day I first became a scurvy buccaneer
    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    Pull away me lads of the Cardiff Rose and hoist the Jolly Roger!

    *Pronounced "looward," which I just learned. The direction toward which the wind is blowing.
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    This one gave me more grief than it should have, probably.

    Vieni sul Mar is an old song from South Italy that even mentions the sea, albeit not in English but in a Neapolitan dialect.
    The first verse and chorus go like this:

    Vieni Sul Mar
    Deh, ti desta fanciulla, la luna
    spande un raggio si caro sul mar.
    Vieni meco, t'aspetta la bruna.
    Fida barca del tuo marinar.
    Ma tu dormi, e non pensi al tuo fido.
    Ma non dorme chi vive d'amor.
    Io la notte a te volo, sul lido.
    Ed il giorno a te volo col cor.

    Vieni sul mar. Vieni a vogar.
    Sentirai l'ebbrezza del tuo marinar.

    Translated to English:


    Come To The Sea
    Pray thee, awake maiden, the moon
    spreads it's ray over the dear sea.
    Come with me, I wait for you brunette.
    Trust in the boat of your sailor.
    But you sleep, thinking not of your devoted one.
    But they sleep not who live by love.
    This night to you I fly, to the shore.
    And in the day you fly with my heart.

    Come to the sea. Come for a row.
    Feel the intoxication of your sailor.

    At least, my mandolin doesn't feel out of place in this context.

    Seaside by the Kooks. Just learned this and gave it a quick take.

    Ahoy good people.
    This is my 2nd upload (technically 1st since the 1st one was a bonus song because of the colour of the sea...)
    This is an Icelandic sailor/sea shanty type song called "Stolt siglir fleygiğ mitt" or Proudly my Boat/Vessel sails - I added subtitles so the lyrics make sense because they won't if you use google translate.

    For my 2nd bonus song, and final for this week, I deferred to my evil twin, the Sea-Sonista, a salty old bugger to be sure, and he wrote this little ditty in short order. So if this doesn't hold water, blame him not me!
