Lyrics

(Canadian folk song)

When I was one I ate a bun,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailorman’s ship,
The sailorman said to me:
“Going over, going under,
Stand at attention like a soldier
With a one, two, three!

When I was two I buckled my shoe…

When I was three I banged my knee…

When I was four I shut the door…

When I was five I learned to jive…

When I was six I picked up sticks…

When I was seven I went to heaven…

When I was eight I learned to skate…

When I was nine I climbed a vine…

When I was ten I caught a hen…
