Drunken Sailor (for 6-hole ocarina)

The lyrics for this tab are, "Way, hey and up she rises" repeated three times followed by "Ear-lye in the morning." I think originally the lyrics were "early" instead of "ear-lye", but Burl Ives changed it when he recorded it. Maybe . . .

The verse is "What shall we do with a Drunken Sailor?" repeated three times etc. Then, make up verse about way to punish the offending sailor: "Put him in the long boat 'til he's sober", etc. etc. etc.
