World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 6th October – Shanty Week! Fire Morengo & The Farewell Shanty led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the score it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Songs:

The Farewell Shanty
(Traditional, also known as the Padstow Farewell)

It’s time to go now
Haul away your anchor
Haul away your anchor
‘Tis a’sailing time

Get some sail upon her
Haul away your halyards
Haul away your halyards
‘Tis a’sailing time

Get her on her course now
Haul away your foresheets
Haul away your foresheets
‘Tis a’sailing time

Waves are surging under
Haul away down Channel
Haul away down Channel
‘Tis a’sailing time

When your sailing’s over
Haul away for Heaven
Haul away for Heaven
God be by your side

It’s time to go now
Haul away your anchor
Haul away your anchor
‘Tis a’sailing time

Fire Marengo
(Traditional)

Lift him up and carry him along,
Fire Marengo, fire away!
Send him down where he belongs
Fire Marengo, fire away!

Stow him in his hull below,
Stay he must and then he’ll go.

When I get back to Liverpool Town,
I’ll pass a line to little Sally Brown.

Screw the cotton screw it down,
Let’s get the hell from Mobile town.

Lift him up and carry him along,
Send him down where he belongs
