GUEST,Dave Hunt Origins: 'The Good Ship Venus' (19) RE: Origins: 'The Good Ship Venus' 25 Feb 16

I've never heard it sung to any tune, just recited.. and there are plenty of sites giving the words...and I can't imagine it was ever used as a shanty. It's limerick meter would suggest it was never used for something that needed equal length measures. I've always know it a a 'rugby' type song...I must have learned it when at school (which is over sixty years ago!)
