    I'm doing a pirate topic for my final block teaching practice, and I'm looking for a clean sea shanty that the children could sing. Does anyone know of any sea shanties that are slow enough to be sung by a Year 1 class, ie, not as fast as Drunken Sailor? Preferably one that actually is an old sea shanty, not a modern one.
