Subject: P.C. version Drunken Sailor
From: Cllr
Date: 30 Jan 09 - 08:32 PM

I nearly put this in BS but it is about folk music so...

cut and paste form the bbc website


"Drunken sailors" have been removed from the lyrics of a nursery rhyme in a government-funded books project.

But the Bookstart charity says the re-writing of What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor? has "absolutely nothing to do with political correctness".

The charity says that the shift from drunken sailor to "grumpy pirate" was to make the rhyme fit a pirate theme, rather than censorship.

"Put him in the brig until he's sober," has also been lost in the new version.

This latest ideological spat over nursery rhymes was sparked by the re-writing of What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor.

'Rusty razor'

Bookstart, a project that encourages parents to read with their young children, has produced a different version - with no references to alcohol-swigging sailors.

PIRATES AHOY!
What shall we do with the grumpy pirate?
What shall we do with the grumpy pirate?
What shall we do with the grumpy pirate?
Early in the morning

Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Hooray and up she rises
Early in the morning

Do a little jig and make him smile
Do a little jig and make him smile
Do a little jig and make him smile
Early in the morning


Instead the hard-drinking sea shanty has been turned into something gentler, with lyrics such as "Tickle him till he starts to giggle, Early in the morning."

The charity has dismissed accusations that this is a politically-correct attempt to avoid the alcohol references, saying that it was a case of re-cycling a familiar tune for reading events that were based on a pirate theme.

"We wanted to find a rhyme which would fit in with this subject and this one has a tune which is instantly recognisable by all," said a statement from Bookstart.

"The inclusion of action lyrics like 'wiggle' and 'tickle' offer parents and small children an opportunity to interact, have fun and enjoy acting out the rhyme together."

Although the Drunken Sailor version familiar to children already leaves out some of the saltier verses.

The original includes such suggestions as: "Shave his belly with a rusty razor", "Stick him in a bag and beat him senseless" and "Put him in the hold with the captain's daughter."

The captain's daughter was a euphemism for a lashing from a cat o' nine tails.

Baa-baa

This is the latest in a series of disputes over nursery rhymes.

There were complaints in 2006 about pre-school children attending two nurseries in Oxfordshire being taught "Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep".

Last year, a story based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale was turned down by a government agency's awards panel as the subject matter could offend Muslims.

A digital book, re-telling the classic story, was rejected by judges who warned that "the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

However, a study in 2004 showed that nursery rhymes exposed children to far more violent incidents than an average evening watching television - including Humpty Dumpty's serious head injury.

In a similar vein, one of the daftest politically correct changes to a traditional song I was told about recently is a school which has changed one of the verses in "The Farmer's in his den" from "The farmer wants a wife" to "The farmer wants a partner" - so as not to offend children whose parents aren't married, and presumably also those who have same sex parents.

Point 1: anybody can write any kind of nursery rhyme they want.

Point 2: you mean there are people whose first-choice description of "Drunken Sailor" is as a "nursery rhyme"?

Point 3: the "captain's daughter" means the captain's daughter. The "gunner's daughter" (they say) meant a deck gun over which someone would be tied for a flogging.

Presumably,these people,who would tinker with our musical heritage in the "politically insane" ( I hesitate to use the word "correct")interests of their childrens' sensibilities,will now ENSURE, absolutely and unconditionally, that said children will NEVER have access to contemporary songs such as " Viva Californication ! " ( assuming they have the brains to draw the intended ,and not very subtle inference therefrom !!). And do NOT let them watch "Captain Pugwash"on TV as, in certain countries ie Australia, "Pugwash" means "Blow-job". Poor kids,I feel so sorry for them today !!

"Did you ever see such a thing in your life" is a rhetorical trick used to disguise a gratuitous criticism and mockery of the visually-impaired "rodents," as you call them. They are not "rodents"; they are proud "mice," the self-chosen name of their species. (Just ask Mickey Mouse and Mighty Mouse if they consider themselves "rodents.")

Any inadvertent trespass into the human's personal space is traceable solely to the visual impairment of the mice. Why aren't you demanding rehabilitation - if that's what the mice themselves desire - instead of casting stones?

Lighter, I would be more concerned about the lack of counselling for the agrarian operative's life-partner. If indeed the visually-impaired creatures invaded her personal space, she should be allowed to defend herself by any means available, but such an action would undoubtedly cause this person severe emotional trauma, which should be dealt with as soon as possible.

You've missed the point (of the knife?): I was referring to this (from Wikipedia and other sources):
Less than convincing attempts to read historical significance into the words[5] has led to the speculation that this musical round was written earlier and refers to Queen Mary I of England blinding and executing three Protestant bishops[6] (History tells us that Ridley, Latimer and Cranmer were burned at the stake, not blinded[7]). The earliest lyrics do not talk about directly killing the three blind mice and are dated after Queen Mary died, however, "she scrapte her tripe licke thou the knife" implies they were prepared and consumed if not a reference to tasting the blood of a slain adversary

Are there huge numbers of teetotaller parents objecting to their kids singing about 'Drunken Sailors" ? I think not. So what does it all amount to? A culture being run by a minority. Why do the very people who shouted loudly against apartheid in South Africa choose to support minority rule in UK?

Toning down bawdy or coarse songs for children is nothing new. In fact, it probably pre-dates 'political correctness' by centuries, if not millenia. How about if we all take a deep breath, step away from our computers, put the kettle on - a nice cup of tea will make everyone feel better.

If the story is indeed true then it's very sad and ludicrous. However, I think it's worth saying a little more about the 'Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep' story that the OP referred to. Now, I'm old enough to remember the 1980s when Ken Livingston's GLC was reported to have decreed that kids should have to sing 'Baa Baa Green Sheep' instead of the traditional words, for the usual 'PC' reasons. The only flaw in this terrible story was that it later turned out to have been fabricated by (I think) the Daily Mail. Which makes me wonder whether the 'Rainbow' version is equally apocryphal.

There are a few ludicrous examples of PC excesses out there, but an awful lot of the horror stories are very hard to pin down when they're subjected to close examination, as opposed to being harrumphed over in the pub. Many of the 'PC ban on Christmas' stories that seem to crop up every year are either apocryphal or highly exaggerated.

Bear in mind that some people (one of whom will shortly be appearing on the BBC in controversial circumstances) would regard an avoidance of the kind of racial / sexual slurs that most Mudcatters would find extremely offensive as 'PC gone mad'.

Birmingham is terrible for the changing of names (Christmas was banned one year in favour of Winterville) and song lyrics, regularly when they do the Birmingham Mosque is one of the most vocal against them! They're not offended by Christmas or Three Little Pigs or anything else but they're the ones that it reflects badly on.

The re-written version looks to be for 5 year olds and as such would seem to be pitched at just the right level.

I first learned Drunken Sailor when I was about 8. Not all of it made sense all those years ago, to a child born and brought up in the 21st. century it's probably meaningless.

The version I learned had already been cleaned up anyway, in our version it was his belly not his bo**ocks which were shaved and only in later years was the captain's daughter added to the mix.

It would appear that this is not a PC version but a complete re-write for a younger audience, that's fine by me.

Does it really matter what 5 year olds are singing so long as they are singing something? If they discover at 5 that singing is great fun we might have a chance of giving them proper folk songs later on.

All the best
