Canada
Going Over the Sea
Going Over the Sea

Original text

When I was one, I ate a bun
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard a sailing ship
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)
"Going over, going under,
Stand at attention
Like a soldier
With a 1, 2, 3!"

When I was two I buckled my shoe,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was three I banged my knee,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was four I slammed the door,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was five I learned to drive,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was six I picked up sticks,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was seven I went to heaven,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was eight I learned to skate,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was nine I climbed a vine,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)

When I was ten I caught a hen,
Going over the sea.
I jumped aboard the sailing ship,
And the sailor said to me...

(Chorus)
