I was reading this article: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-55661351

It's been pretty miserable for too long (in general and for GTFC). I see there's some sort of craze for sea shanties at the moment. Surely this is something The Mariners can clock on to and bring a bit of a smile? Lloyd Griffith with his singing perhaps can organise something?

Maybe this is already happening though.

I agree, https://forum.thefishy.co.uk/Blah.pl?m-1610661045/s-new - this thread needs more content.

I think things are bad and sad enough with the club at the moment to have to listen to sea shanties as well.

With all the players going over at the slightest touch Blow the Man Down would be appropriate.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I thought the lyrics to Haul Away Joe would lend themselves to something about Holloway!

I thought the lyrics to Haul Away Joe would lend themselves to something about Holloway!

Runaway Home



“Haul away your rolling king, heave away, haul away
Haul away, you'll hear me sing, we're bound for South Australia”

Becomes

Holloway, I took the mick, run away, Holloway
Holloway, I legged it quick, because I can’t screw all o’ ya


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

A different shanty but the idea is sound!

I don’t know the other ‘haul away’ song. How does it go?
