We’ll Rant And We’ll Roar

for mixed chorus and piano

Also popularly known as “The Ryans and the Pittmans,” this song recounts the romantic entanglements of a sailor named Robert “Bob” Pittman. It is based on the English sea shanty “Spanish Ladies,” which has a number of variants known to sailors from New England to Australia. Most of the verses in this version may be attributed to Henry W. LeMessurier, and were written about 1875.

“We’ll Rant and We’ll Roar” is part of Patrick O’Shea’s Three Newfoundland Folksongs.
