A Sailor Went To Sea Sea Sea

Song Video

Lyrics

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.

Oh, Helen had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell
When Helen went to heaven
The steamboat went to hell

Ask me for a muffin
I'll give you some old bread
And if you do not like it
Just go and soak your head

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

Information About A Sailor Went To Sea Sea Sea

This silly song says that a sailor went to sea sea sea and all he could "see" was the bottom of the "sea". It's a funny song because of the puns. The two word "sea" and "see" sound alike, but mean different things.

In the English language, we use the word 'sea' to describe a large body of salty water. A very large sea can be called an ocean, but some oceans are so large they have more than one sea within them!

A sailor is a person who steers or helps in the navigation or operation of vessels on water.

The word's origin can be traced back to the time when sea going ships were powered by sails, propelled by the winds the cross bodies of water, without the aid of an engine or motor of any kind.

There are many different jobs that sailors can have onboard a ship; generally sailors who are not officers of a ship are referred to as seamen.

Maybe you could make an even funnier version of this song by saying a seaman went to sea sea sea!

A sailor went to see see see
To see what he could see see see
But all that he could see see see
Was the bottom of the deep blue see see see
A sailor went to see chop chop,
To see what he could see chop chop,
But all that he could see
Chop chop was the bottom of the deep blue see chop chop.
A sailor went to see chop knee,
To see what he could see chop knee
But all that he could see chop knee,
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea chop knee.
A sailor went to see
Chop knee foot Timbuktu to see
What he could see
Chop knee foot Timbuktu,
But all that he could see
Chop knee foot Timbuktu was
The bottom of the deep blue see
Chop knee foot Timbuktu.

This one has you stomping, clapping, snapping, and jumping

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

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

A sailor went to snap, snap, snap,
To see what he could snap, snap, snap.
But all that he could snap, snap, snap
Was the bottom of the deep blue snap, snap, snap.
Clap, clap, clap.
Stomp, stomp, stomp.
Sea, sea, sea.

A sailor went to jump, jump, jump,
To see what he could jump, jump, jump.
But all that he could jump, jump, jump
Was the bottom of the deep blue jump, jump, jump.
Snap, snap, snap.
Clap, clap, clap.
Stomp, stomp, stomp.
Sea, sea, sea.

This post is a winner...come pick up your blue ribbon! The barn, etc., is charming, your photos are charming, and you are chrR&inm#39;!ae your comment about the round house. I would have a very difficult time living in such a place. I'm usually going around in circles anyway but when I run into a wall I can stop. In a round house I'd never stop! Right?

I learnt this song from my mother as a child in the early 60's. It has some actions that the kids will enjoy especially when each verse is sung faster than the preceding one.
