Hi Margarita, I'd have to say that some of those old quint ones, today nobody would getway singing modern ones as bold.
Maid Of Amsterdam:
"I put my hand upon her thatch
She says young man that's my main hatch.
Blow The Man Down:
"Up to her quarters she piped me aboard
There on her bed I cut lose with my sword
Just as my cutter was forging ahead
She cried my husband & jumped ot of bed"

"I say little Rosie turn up your clothes
May be the last time, I don't know
Ol Dollar Mamie:
"Ol Dollar Mamie turn her head & smile
You could hear her holler for a level Mile"
