What Will We Do With a Drunken Sailor?

Something for the weekend.  What Will We Do With a Drunken Sailor, sung by the Irish Rovers.  This sea chanty dates from 1824 in written form, although my guess is, like most sea chanties, it was around in unwritten form long before that.  In the military the answer to this song was simple enough:  throw him in the brig until he sobers up, however that would make for a very brief song!
