A Sailor Went to Sea Sea Sea

Lyrics

(Folk song)

A sailor went to sea sea sea
To see what he could see see see
But all that he could see see see
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea sea sea.

  1. (Motion: on “sea” and “see”, flat hand to forehead, as if shading the eyes to see further ahead).
    Second verse: replace “sea” and “see” with “clap”; clap on the word “clap”
    Third verse: replace “sea/see/clap” with “knee”; point to knee on the word “knee”
    Fourth verse: replace “sea/see/clap/knee” with “toe” or “tow”; point to toe at the appropriate word.
    Fifth verse (somewhat accelerated), uses all the gestures in order:
    A sailor went to sea clap knee toe
    To see what he could see clap knee tow
    But all that he could see clap knee tow
    Was the bottom of the deep blue sea clap knee toe.
