What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor? Unexperugated sea chanties, edited and annotated by Douglas Morgan.
A collection of 22 "uncensored" shanties, mostly familiar. At the very least, this book offers some insight into the variations of verse a creative sailor had available. Historical and sailing references are surprisingly well explained, often on a line-by-line basis.
