The Pirate Song

When I was one, I had just begun the day I went to sea,
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
"We're going this way, that way, forward backwards
Over the deep blue sea (or the Irish Sea)
A bottle of Rum to warm my tum,
And that's the life for me.
Da, da, da dum dum dum ... Da, da, da dum dum dum ...

When I was two, I tied my shoe the day I went to sea??
When I was three, I bumped my knee ...
When I was four, I shut the door ...
When I was five, I was still alive ...
When I was six, I gathered sticks ...
When I was seven, I was almost in heaven ...
When I was eight, I closed the gate ...
When I was nine, I was feeling fine ...
When I was ten, I started again ...

[Suggested motions: "...climbed aboard..." {as if climbing up the side of a ship} "...the captain said..."
{give salute} "We'll go..." {bend at the waist, forward, and back then left, right so it doesn?ie in with
the words} "...over the Irish Sea." {make waves with hand} "...bottle of rum..." {as if chugging a drink}
"...to warm my tum..." {rub tum} "...that's the life..." {slap knee and raise hand} "...da, da, da dum dum dum
..." {step forward, step back or do the shadows walk}
