Thread Name: The origin of Sea Chanteys
Subject: RE: The origin of Sea Chanteys
Someone pointed out, these verses will work with almost any sea chanty:

I do not like green eggs and ham
I cannot stand them, Sam I Am!

I would not eat them in a boat!
I would not eat them on a goat!

(I can't remember the rest.)
