Svineper

Interesting Facts about the Svineper

The Dirty Old Pig or Svineper was the most popular pumping shanty of all Scandinavian. The original was the Norvegian, but also we can find the German and Swedish versions. A couple of facts about this song, first Stan Hugill first time heard this song from shantyman Paddy Griffiths, who get this song from Norwegian barque. The second version that you can see here is Stan Hugill from “Opsang Fra Seilskibstiden”, but the tune Stan Hugill learned from a Norwegian sailor is called”Big Skan”. A third and most intriguing fact is that choruses are in five different languages.
In the Norwegian version, a play on words is very noticeable. There is mention of a “real” pig, but usually, more often the reference is to the skipper – a dirty old hog, i. e. Svineper.

The full lyrics

Svineper

Udi Parmerent i Holand, der laa en gammal Brigg,
Forsilten vardens skorg, og forsliten var dens rigg,
– Oberland, zum pao wand, Oberland zum par wand,
– Til Drøbak med han Svineper vi tidsnok Komme Kan.

* 2 *

Det fandtes ikke kompas eller mathaus ved dens ratt,
Vi styrte efter pullen i Per Svine’s gamle hatt;
– Ober land zum par wand, ober land zum par wand,
– Til Drøbak med han Svineper vi tindsnok komme kan.

* 3 *

Kahytten den var umalt, men ruffen der var god,
Og Køierne var malte med vaeggelusblod;
– Overland som tibrands, overlands som paa vand,
– Til Drøbak med den Griseper vi aldrig komme kan.

* 4 *

Skutesiden den ratten og daekket hak i hul,
Og ratten bare et gammelt kjaerrehjul;
– Overland som paa vand, overland som paa vand,
– Til Drøbak med den Grisper vi aldrig komme kan.

* 5 *

Vi matte pumpe laens imellem hvert et glas,
Og naar vi gik fra haven, skar vi katten ind til bras;
– Gi mig ranson paa vand, gi mig ranson paa vand
– Og fire mand i giggen satte Svineper iland.

* 6 *

Vi hadde ikke bramsel, vi heiste op et skjort,
Og jamen holdt det godt saalaenge veiret det var tort;
– Gi mig ranson paa vand, gi mig ranson paa vand,
– Og fire mand giggen satte Svineper iland.

* 7 *

Og baasmanden spytta, han sver og bandte paa,
At grastaug til taljerip fik’n aldrig til at staa;
– Hive langsomt fra land, hive langsomt fra land,
– Der Bergenske møer snart møte nok vi kan.

* 8 *

Og naar vi først var kommet et stykke ut fra land,
Drak Svineper mer braendevin end alle mand drakvand;
– Hive langsomt fra land, hive langsomt fra land,
– De Bergenske møer snart møte nok vi kan.

* 9 *

Det var Søndagsmorra, vi blev purret ut til baut,
Men naar vi saa i luka, laa kjølsvinet og flaut;
– Kors i Herrans namn, hur det går langsomt från land,
– Vi hurra for den resan, när vi kom til Köpenhamn.

* 10 *

Og engang i vekka vi melkevelling fik,
Da fik vi suge purka som om paa daekket gik;
– Kors i Herrans namn, hur det går langsomt från land,
– Vi hurra för den resan, när vi kom til Köpenhamn.

Naar Kanalen vi passet har,
Og Goodvin Sand vi da blir klar.

Og hlem til vores gamle mor.

Og venter der den lange kveld.

Som kommer hjem saa traet av sjøn.

Med frisk sydvest det gar galant,
Naar alle seil er sat i kant.

Med godt humør og med stor lyst,
Snart ser vi gamle Norgest kyst.

En mand paa utkik straks at gaa.

‘Vi har en lods forut i lae!

‘Bras forre mersseil bak med hast!
Staa klar, et taug til lodsen kast!’

Saa gjør vi godt fast lodsbaaten
‘Nu lods, tag I kommandoen!’

Nu har vi faat vor lods, vor ven,
Hal forre mersseil fuldt igjen!

Nu kan vi seile glad vor ko’s.

Til Bergen der er vores hjem.

Og snart vi hjem til pigerne ser.

Chorus.–Good-bye, fare you well; good-bye, fare you well.
Solo.–His crimson, my boys! we are homeward bound.
Chorus.–Hurra, my boys, We are homeward bound.”

Heisevise – Wergland version (Norwegian)

Interesting Facts about the Heisevise – Wergland version (Norwegian)

Heisevise was sung as a capstan anchor shanty, especially when raising the “mud-hook”.

Stan Hugill has given us a funny story about an uncensored, Norwegian version of this song. It is a conversation between old Norwegian sailors:
‘Do you remember how the Norwegian version of this shanty went?’
‘I do, but… it is too horrible! What we sang is now better forgotten!’
‘yes, that is so, … Let’s give Wergland’s bowdlerized version instead …’
Stan Hugill mentioned about seventeen verses of the original Wergland’s version, in fact, I found actually 25 of them. I found the full version of this great capstan shanty on Henrik Wergland’s “Folkeviser”(1849). Special thanks to Arne B Petersen, for helping with the learning of the ancient Norwegian dialect pronunciation.

The song will be reconstructed by myself as the capstan shanty.

– Then sing fare-ye-well, to me pretty young gel,

Farvel, du gamle Graa! Farvel!

Ja vestenfore selv Cap Horn

Den sorte Skonnert braser væk.

Brasiliens Slaraffenland.

Tilbage derfor i en Fart!

* 45 *

Følg os, Atlanterhavets Hai!
Tilbage over Porto Pray!

* 46 *

Ja fra den takkede Azor
tilbage til det elskte Nord!

* 47 *

* 48 *

Vi længes efter Lindesnæs.

* 49 *

Vi længes svarlig hjem igjen.

* 50 *

Og Apelsinen gyldenmalt
vi spise tidt til Taarers Salt.

* 51 *

Men naar vi Norge faa at see,
da er forbi al Sorg og Vee.

Hvis Visen synes dig for lang,
saa syng en Stub deraf hvergang!

* 53 *

Matrosen hugger af sin Bus.
Med Visen gjør det samme Puds!

* 54 *

Og blev den lang, saa glem dog ei,
Preciosa har saa lang en Vei.

Hurra! Hurra! for Singsallijo!

Interesting Facts about Santiana (D) (Norwegian – English Translation)

This version of Santiana, Stan Hugill had from the shanty book “Opsang”, hails from the port of Stavanger, and is a ‘Westland’ version. This translation of the: Santiana (D) (Norvegian – English Translation) will be singing as a capstan shanty (faster / first phase of capstan rotation, before the chain, was still vertical below the ship). Here is the English translation by B. Streiffert. It is also possible that the song has never been sung, and Hugill just posts a translation of a Norwegian song, whatever, in My opinion, this beautiful translation deserves to use it. And even feel proud of the possibility I will be the first person to sing this text.

The song will be reconstructed by myself as the capstan shanty.

To Christiansands, oh, we steered in.

Waiting to wish us welcome home.

As I was rolling up the street,
A teen-age gal I chanced to meet.

* 6 *

To this fair gal I then did talk,
‘Oh, let’s be friends an’ take a walk.’

* 7 *

The girl she thought unto herself,
‘To catch a Mate is luck itself!’

* 8 *

She was a nice girl in her teens,
With eyes of blue and curly hair.

And the full lyrics

Santiana D (Norwegian)

Fra Kjøbenhavn vor reise stod,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Vi satte kursen imod nord,
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 2 *

For Storm, uveir, kontrarig vind,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Til Kristiansand saa gik vi ind.
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 3 *

En aften stod vi fire mand,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Beredte til at gaa iland.
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 4 *

Paa bryggen stod der snese fem,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Og onsket os velkommen hjem.
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 5 *

Men da jeg opad gaten gaar,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
En pike staar der paa sytten aar.
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 6 *

jeg talte tiden liljavaand;
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Kom raek mig nu din venskaps haand!
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 7 *

Den pike straks i tanker faldt;
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
En styresmand–det var ei galt!
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!

* 8 *

En deilig mø i ungdoms vaar,
– Hivaavei! Santianna!
Med oiner blaa og kruset haar.
– Hivaavei, hurra for rullangaa!
