This song is a traditional sea shanty, often sung when raising a sail, or raising the anchor. (Referred to when you sing “up she rises”) There are four verses recorded in this arrangement, but many more can be found. Have your students create new verses for the song.

Write 2-5 new lines. You can use the worksheet that's provided, or write on a piece of paper.

Read the lines you’ve written and choose the 2 (or 4) you like the best.

Decide on a form for your composition. For example:
A Read the poem
B Read your new lines
A Read the poem again

Extra Challenge: Create an ostinato with mouth sounds. An ostinato is a pattern that repeats.
