Hash-Appropriate Sea Shanties

DRUNKEN HASHER (sung to the tune of Drunken Sailor)

Verse:

What shall we do with a drunken hasher

What shall we do with a drunken hasher 

What shall we do with a drunken hasher

Earl-aye in the evening

Chorus:

Way, hay, the BAC it rises

Way, hay, the BAC it rises

Way, hay, the BAC it rises

Earl-aye in the evening!

Other Verses:

Put ’em in the circle and violate them (x3)…

Shave their junk with a rusty razor (x3)…

Put ’em in the beer van til their sober (x3)…

DRINK (by Alestorm)

Verse 1:

Piracy’s a crime and crime doesn’t pay, and we go home poor at the end of the day
But I’d rather live my life in rags than be chained to a desk with a wife as a hag
We live each day like there’s nothing to lose, but a man has needs and the need is booze
They say all the best things in life are free so give all your beer and your rum to me!  

Chorus (x2):

We are here to drink your beer
And steal your rum at a point of a gun
Your alcohol to us will fall
‘Cause we are here to drink your beer 

DRINK! DRINK! DRINK! DRINK!
