Subject: RE: Child-safe Sea Chanties
Got in trouble once by having a classful of fifth-graders make up their own verses to "Drunken Sailor". Don't try it. "What do you do with a nasty teacher?"

Social workers were called in--not completely without justification-- to interview one or two of the kids who came up with particularly disturbing concepts, suggesting that they were familiar with abuse.

True story.
