"Going Over the Sea"

           
   
1.
When I was one I ate a bun,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,
   
           
      Refrain:
   
      "Going over, going under,
Standing at attention like a soldier,
With a one, two, and three."
   
           
   
2.
When I was two, I tied my shoe,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    3. When I was three, I climbed a tree,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    4. When I was four, I shut the door,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    5. When I was five, I danced the jive,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    6. When I was six, I picked up sticks,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    7. When I was seven, I counted to eleven,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    8. When I was eight, I learned to skate,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    9. When I was nine, I towed the line,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
   
           
    10. When I was ten, I started again,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailor-man's ship,
And the sailor-man said to me,

Refrain
