One of my sons was talking about joining the Navy. For decades Sailors have sung Sea Chanties,Sea Chantys, Sea Shantys. Sung to the tune of Yo, Ho, Ho. It is fun to Sing and you can easily add New Verses.

 A Sea Chanty for Don Hondo

 

Yo Ho Ho

Off We Go

Sailing Seven Seas

With Don Hondo

 

Sail to the Sun,

Never the Rain

Work for Fun

It’s Worth the Pain

 

Don Hondo, Don Hondo

Always a Show

With Don Hondo

 

One Eye Works,

One Eye Don’t

The Many Quirks

Of Don Hondo

 

 

Blond and Big

Shaped Like a Twig 

Yo Ho Ho

Our Don Hondo

 

Big Don Hondo,

Blonde Don Hondo.

Yo Ho Ho

It’s Off We Go!!!

 

We know Port

We know Aft

Have some Sport,

Or we go Daft

 

Got a Girl

?n every Port

Some Romance

?s just for Sport.

 

 

Yo Ho Ho

Off We Go

Sailing Seven Seas

With Don Hondo

A Sea Chanty for Don Hondo page 3

 

See the Tall

Thunderous Waves

When they Fall,

They’re not our Faves

 

 

 

 

Now Calm Seas

With Gentle Breeze

May We Please

Have more cheese?

 

We Begin

Each New Day

Work Real Hard,

Then we play

 

Yo Ho Ho

Off we Go

Sailing Seven Seas

With Don Hondo
