I'd love to hear that to music. I'm familiar with the nautical version, but have never heard of this one.

There's a recording at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMlIBgUKGE8.

I'm due to record this at a music lesson soon (but I'm not planning on putting my version on YouTube!)

Thanks for the link. It almost sounds like a dirge, which is quite fitting.

I got to work on this song in a lesson and then sang it in a pub music session. It surprised me, working with a metronome in the lesson, that it's quite a fast-paced song at (we reckoned) 160 beats per minute. That makes it no less reflective. men will go out and find ways to wage war, however I wish that they would not involve animals.
