As a kid I listened (often) to Burl Ives' "Down the Sea in Ships" record, which had several real chanteys plus just a lot of lovely and fun songs about the sea -- like Eddystone Light, et multa alia. "Jack was every inch a sailor..."

One of my newer favorites is this ancient shanty that is an obvious precurser to a 1950's rock song; the chorus and first verse run something like this:

Chorus:

Wake up, Susiana, wake up!
Wake up, Susiana, wake up!

We've both been sound asleep – Umph!
Wake up, Susiana, and weep – Umph!
Blue Peter's flying, there's no denying,
We're in trouble deep!
Wake up, Susiana! – Umph!
Wake up, Susiana! – Umph!
We gotta ship out! (CHO)

There should be more verses, if you're interested, mouldering away in the Mudcat thread tangle.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Dave -- Little Sally Racket is not obscene, unless you have a dirty mind or think like a sailor. Part of the enduring charm of the shanties and forebitters was their use of hints and innuendoes(sp?; it's very tired out right now). Jack was always aware that a gentleperson might be in earshot of a song and thus couched meanings in words only understood by shipmates and Judies.

Skipper Jack -- the refrain you cite is the same as Cosher Bailey, a Welsh song about a railroad.

I finally found the thread I was looking for Lyr Add: Hob-i-derry Dando with great postings from Abby Sale and sian, west wales to name but two.

As Abby said "I think the point of all this is that looking at a single version just doesn't afford the wonderful transitions of the song from Love to satire to chanty to bawdy to sing-along."

Hob Y Derri Dando (And thanks for the Welsh version, Gareth!)

The Baggies, however use the words from another capstan shanty "Mochyn Du" (Black Pig) to the tune of Hob Y Derri Dando. The Mochyn Du version has the chorus:- "Wuz you ever saw?" Or "Did you ever see, Did you ever see, did you ever see, such a funny thing before?"

You can find a couple of versions of Hob Y Derri Dando in Stan Hugill's book, "Shanties From The Seven Seas."

There's one I like that has a main "hook" line (repeated refrain line) "A ... wouldn't do me any harm." [I've heard such verses as "A pint of good ale wouldn't do me any harm," "A night with a lass wouldn't ...", etc.] You can insert whatever it is that wouldn't do you any harm. I couldn't find this in the forum or DT, and I don't know the name.
