Scrump Origins: Drunken sailor .. wayhey or hif ho (17) RE: Origins: Drunken sailor .. wayhey or hif ho 23 Mar 07


The DT vesion has "Way hay" (sic) which is pretty much what you were singing.

I've heard "Hey ho and up she rises" sung too. And probably others I've forgotten.

Not sure what "hif ho" is though - how did he pronounce it?

Like most of these songs there are many variants so the 'usually' is a bit subjective.
