Any Boy To Any Ship was first published in 1946. It is a bright, excited song, scored for unison voices with Piano accompaniment, which makes it ideal for any school choir.
Arthur Baynon (1889-1954) was a British composer, music teacher and organist. He set many simple songs for school choirs. The lyrics for this song were written by Caryl Brahms (1901-1982), a British writer who wrote a wide range of novels, film and broadcast scripts, and light verse. Born as Doris Caroline Abrahams, she used different pseudonyms, such as Oliver Linden, to avoid her parents finding out about her early career.
