We played this album and Volume 1 at my daughter's birthday party, and the kids had such a good time dancing to it that they asked us to put them both on again...This is definitely an album that will be played over and over again. - ★★★★★

IT WORKS! It helps calm down my son when he is having a tantrum, and soothes him to sleep at bedtime. And me too, if truth be told - this is a very relaxing CD, and we have enjoyed some fantastic mother and baby chill-out time together. What more could any mother want? - ★★★★★

These instrumental songs are really good if you are looking for something soothing with no voice. My baby reacts really well to all these melodies and putting him to sleep became easier. I would definitely recommend this to anyone! - ★★★★★

Good CD of old playground songs. - ★★★★☆

A dangerously infectious collection of fun songs for children and adults. Helen Raw's voice is stunning. Listening to her can easily wash away the stresses of the day. This is definitely a must have for parents with grade school aged children, or just people with a fondness for Scottish folk songs. - ★★★★★

I bought this for my grandson but it's a great hit with adults and children alike. Sadly most of these songs are not known to many young children today. Good to see them being preserved for everyone. - ★★★★★

Really bought this for one song but ended up buying 6 album downloads as they are so well done, sound like folk songs. I like listening so car rides won't be so hard! - ★★★★★

The tracks here are delivered with an enthusiasm that only a professional misanthrope could fail to smile at, and the saccharine blandness of so many other children's nursery rhyme albums is thankfully missing. - ★★★★☆

As I was walking down Sullivan Street
Heave, ho, blow the man down
A pretty young maiden I happened to meet
Give me some time to blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

She said "Can you help me, kind sir, if you please?"
Heave, ho, blow the man down
I woke in the morning upon the high seas
Give me some time to blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

We dropped down our anchor in Calico Bay
Heave, ho, blow the man down
I've not been home now for many a day
Give me some time to blow the man down.
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

Origins of "Blow The Man Down"

This title of this old sea shanty refers to the act of knocking a man to the ground in a fight.

The song originated in Liverpool, England, towards the end of the 19th century. It is about sailors working on the American Black Ball Line. These ships were very fast - a return journey to New York took around 7 weeks - so sailors were paid earlier than sailors on other lines. Discipline was tough on these ships - sailors were beaten regularly, hence the song's title.

On their return, they would frequent Liverpool's Paradise Street. Paradise Street and nearby Lime Street (mentioned in the Liverpool folk song "Maggie Mae") were frequented by ladies of the night, where the newly paid sailor would spend their new-found wealth. It was named after the London street where Thomas Steers, who built the first dock, once lived. It led down towards Canning Place where Liverpool's Customs and Excise were based in a large, domed Victorian classical building. Paradise Street is now the centre of the Liverpool One retail development.

The TwinkleTrax recording of "Blow The Man Down" uses newly written, child friendly lyrics:

As I was walking down Sullivan Street
Heave, ho, blow the man down
A pretty young maiden I happened to meet
Give me some time to blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

She said "Can you help me, kind sir, if you please?"
Heave, ho, blow the man down
I woke in the morning upon the high seas
Give me some time to blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

We dropped down our anchor in Calico Bay
Heave, ho, blow the man down
I've not been home now for many a day
Give me some time to blow the man down.
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!

Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow the man down
Heave, ho, blow the man down
Oh, blow the man down, hearties, blow him away
Give me some time to blow the man down!
