Way Over the Irish Sea

When I was one, I had just begun
The day I went to sea
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
"We'll go this way, that way, forward and back
Way over the Irish Sea.
A bottle of Coke to soothe my throat,
And that's the life for me.
Da, da, dum; da, da, dum . . .

When I was two, I tied my shoe . . .
When I was three, I bumped my knee . . .
When I was four, I shut the door . . .
When I was five, I was still alive . . .
When I was six, I gathered sticks . . .
When I was seven, I was almost in heaven . . .
When I was eight, I closed the gate . . .
When I was nine, I was feeling fine . . .
When I was ten, I started over again . . .

[Suggested motions: "...climbed aboard..." {as if climbing up the side of a ship} "...the captain said..." {give salute}

life..." {slap knee and raise hand} "...da, da, dum..." {step
forward, step back}
