From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 10/07/18 - "Paper is dead?":

Love it....


Paper is dead?

Made me laugh out loud! Foreign commercials are so good!
My hat's off to the advertising team that came up with the idea.
It has been said that paper is dead ...
It' s only 39 seconds, so please watch it all...the irony won't be lost on you.

Drunken Sailor

Chorus
Way, hay up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Earlye in the morning!

What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
Earlye in the morning?

Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him

Hoist him aboard with a running bowline

Put him in the brig until he's sober.

Make him turn to at shining bright work.

Other verses from
The Book of Navy Songs
(If the verse is the same I did not repeat it)

Put him in a boat and row him over

Hoist him up to the topsail yardarm

Make him clean out all the spit-kids

That's what you do with a drunken sailor
(The last line of this verse is followed
by "Amen")
