List of songs mentioned in the Swallows and Amazons series.

The Swallows often sing sea shanties, eg Titty says when they are off to Wild Cat Island We ought to sing "Spanish Ladies" (SA3).

Returning from Flushing at night, Daddy (Ted Walker) is steering with the one hand, with the red glow of the cigar in his other hand weaving circles in the dark .... Susan whispers to John He can't think its our fault, or he wouldn't be singing like that and Titty whispers He's been away from home a long time .... He's singing (Away to Rio and The Black Ball Line) because he's nearly back (WD24)
