The Day

Lyrics

When I was one, I sucked my thumb, the day I went to sea. .

CHORUS:
I jumped aboard a sailing ship and the captain said to me,
"We're goin' this way, that way, forward, backward, over the Irish sea.
With a bottle of Coke, and that's no joke, and that's the life for me", said he.

When I was two, I buckled my shoe, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was three, I scraped my knee, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was four, I slammed the door, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was five, I danced a jive, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was six, I picked up sticks, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was seven, I counted to eleven, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was eight, I was really late, the day I went to sea. .
[CHORUS]
When I was nine I got in line, the day I went to sea. .

[CHORUS].

When I was ten, I did it again, the day I went to sea. .

[CHORUS].

I learnt this song when I was about 6 or 7 growing up in England - for some reason it popped into my head the other day - I wasn't sure if it was a song my neighbour & I made up or she taught me so I looked it up online to see if it was a real song, nice to know other people know it too, we had hours of fun singing and dancing to it - I've also heard the verse as: I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me, "We're sailing North, South, East, West, Over the Irish Sea, with a bottle of rum to warm my tum, and that's the life for me!"

This is a great song! I've also heard the verse as: I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me, "We're goin' this way, that, forward, backwards, Over the Irish Sea, A juicy plum to warm my tum, and that's the life for me!"
