Long-legged sailor

Sailor waving

Text:  
Did you ever-ever-ever, in your long-legged life, 
See a long-legged sailor with a long-legged wife?
No I never-never-never, in my long-legged life,
Saw a long-legged sailor with a long-legged wife!

About the song:  This song is a favourite with children, who, after learning the first verse, are invited to improvise texts for subsequent verses (e.g. short-nosed sailor, red-headed sailor etc.).

About the arrangement:  This arrangement is purely instrumental.  The calypso rhythm in the accompaniment takes up the idea of the sailor, and the melody is played by a solo viola before being played by the violins.
