O a sailors life is the life for me
How i love to sail on the bounding seas

And i never never ever do a thing about weather
For the weather never ever does a thing for me

O a sailors life is the life for me
How i love to sail on the bounding seas

If you want to sail a ship like mine
And be a sailor all the time
then learn to do the sailors hornpipe just like me.

And i love the wind a blowin’
As we leave the quay
Till we found the jetty and we let the sail blow free
Case i always had the notion for a life upon the ocean
Dance the hornpipe to the motion of the roling sea.

I much prefer the original recording made by mike oldfield and viv stanishall for the first tublar bells release.
After a night at the pub they set mics all round the manor ( virgin studios ), and with mike playing; viv commented on whatever came into view like some tour guide.

It was considered too avant guarde for a new composer, and so didn't see release until the mike oldfield boxed 4 album set came out.

I do like them all though.

He's harmonizing two different melodies. That's actually pretty impressive
