Today’s cultural moment

January 20, 2022

Because you haven’t lived until you’ve heard “The Wellerman” sung in Ukrainian.

English translation:

There once was a ship that put to sea
The name of that ship was the Billy o’ Tea; 
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
Blow, me bully boys, blow! 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go. 

She had not been two weeks from shore
When down on her a right whale bore; 
The captain called all hands and swore
He’d take that whale in tow. 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go. 

Before the boat had hit the water
The whale’s tail came up and caught her; 
All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
When she dived down low. 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go. 

No line was cut, no whale was freed; 
The captain’s mind was not on greed; 
But he belonged to the whaleman’s creed
She took that ship in tow. 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go. 

For forty days or even more
The line went slack, then tight once more; 
All boats were lost, there were only four, 
And still that whale did go. 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go. 

As far as I’ve heard, the fight’s still on, 
The line’s not cut, and the whale’s not gone; 
The Wellerman makes his regular call
To encourage the captain, crew and all. 
Soon may the Wellerman come
To bring us sugar and tea and rum; 
One day when the tonguin’ is done
We’ll take our leave and go.


Oh, the weather outside is frightful
