The Sailor's Hornpipe

Sadie Says . . .

"Jenny Linsky dances the Sailor's Hornpipe the best,


I dance it a lot better than you guys!"

(Thus spoke Sadiethustra to hapless Mom and Dad after observing our sad renditions of said dance - which were, by the way, only undertaken after her strong and repeated exhortations to cut a rug in the mariner way.) (From the mouth of babes, eh?)
