And we're...

0:00:040:00:06

-Right on!

-And when we're not studying at school,

0:00:060:00:08

we're down here on the farm, working together...in amazing Cornwall.

0:00:080:00:11

This time, we decided to do a sea shanty for you.

0:00:110:00:14

Sea shanties were musical stories designed to keep the ship's crew

0:00:140:00:17

entertained during their long months at sea.

0:00:170:00:19

In our county, Cornwall - or Kernow, as we call it -

0:00:190:00:22

it's surrounded by the sea.

0:00:220:00:24

There it is.

0:00:240:00:25

Around here, we still love a good, old sea shanty.

0:00:250:00:28

Now, me hearties, let's hear The Muckers' sea shanty.

0:00:280:00:31

'Tis called Seasick Billy.

0:00:310:00:33

Take it away, Noah.

MUSIC STARTS

0:00:350:00:36

# Let's throw up a tale for 'ee

0:00:380:00:43

# A dream that just couldn't be

0:00:430:00:46

# About a young Kernow boy who shouted, "Ahoy!"

0:00:460:00:51

# And packed up his trunks for the seas

0:00:510:00:55

# But they called him Seasick Billy, oi, oi

0:00:550:00:59

# They called him Seasick Billy, oi, oi

0:00:590:01:03

# Cos when the sails unfurled

0:01:030:01:05

# Poor Billy, he hurled

0:01:050:01:07

# That's why they called him Seasick Billy

0:01:070:01:10

# But the sailing he determined to do

0:01:110:01:15

# So he stuck to his dream strong as glue

0:01:150:01:19

# But as the vessel it tumbled

0:01:190:01:22

# His belly was rumbled

0:01:220:01:24

# And he covered the decks with his spew, ah-ha!

0:01:240:01:28

# And they called him Seasick Billy

0:01:280:01:32

# They called him Seasick Billy, ah-ha!

0:01:320:01:36

# Cos when the sails unfurled

0:01:360:01:38

# Poor Billy, he hurled

0:01:380:01:40

# That's why they called him Seasick Billy

0:01:400:01:44

# Now the skipper was a rare Frenchman who cared, oui, oui

0:01:440:01:48

# He pitied the boy's matted hair

0:01:480:01:52

# But constantly he blew on the rest of the crew

0:01:520:01:56

# The moment the weather weren't fair

0:01:560:02:00

# So the captain he had it all planned

0:02:010:02:05

# To drop off the lad on dry land

0:02:050:02:09

# And as he packed up his trunks

0:02:090:02:11

# Billy cried and blew chunks

0:02:110:02:13

# And they bade him farewell on the sand

0:02:130:02:17

# And they called him Seasick Billy

0:02:170:02:21

# They called him Seasick Billy

0:02:210:02:25

# Cos when the sails unfurled

0:02:250:02:27

# Poor Billy, he hurled

0:02:270:02:29

# So they called him Seasick Billy

0:02:290:02:34

# Now Billy, he had no rebuke

0:02:340:02:38

# For sailors can't be covered in puke

0:02:380:02:42

# His reputation to chunder

0:02:420:02:44

# Would not send him under

0:02:440:02:46

# And he saved up enough for a lute

0:02:460:02:49

# Then he thought of his time on the boat

0:02:500:02:54

# And he added his story to note

0:02:540:02:58

# To his tales of vomit

0:02:580:03:01

# He put music upon it

0:03:010:03:02

# Now he does something else with his throat

0:03:020:03:06

# And they still call him Seasick Billy, ah-ha!

0:03:060:03:11

# They still call him Seasick Billy, ah-ha!

0:03:110:03:15

# But now shanties he sings

0:03:150:03:16

# Sea stories he brings

0:03:160:03:19

# Like this one called Seasick Billy. #

0:03:190:03:24

THEY CHEER

0:03:240:03:25

Four Cornish teenage farmers and comedy vloggers sing songs about manure, tractors and Shakespeare.

The Muckers celebrate Cornwall's seafaring traditions in support of national storytelling week with a musical story in the form of a sea shanty called Seasick Billy - a story about a boy who dreamed of being a sailor but he just couldn't help throwing up all over his crew the moment he set sail. What will become of him?
