… for the youngest section in Sea Scout Groups.

Monthly Archives: May 2016

I’ve done some tweaking on this, to make it more Sea Scouting friendly:-)


(although I’ve also tweaked some of them a little.)

When I was one I had some fun the day I went to sea,
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
We’re going North, South,
East, West
and up the Irish sea,
A bottle of rum to soothe my tum and that’s the life for me!
(or A juicy plum to fill my tum and that’s the life for me! if the rum is going to be a problem for your Group:-) )

When I was two I sailed into view the day I went to sea…

When I was three I found the galley the day I went to sea…

When I was four I rowed to shore the day I went to sea…

When I was five I learnt to dive the day I went to sea…

When I was six I learned to fix the engine on DC
(This one is local to our Group. DC is Dampier Creek, our big work boat. It’s always having work done on the engine:-) )

When I was seven I gazed at the heavens the day I went to sea…

When I was eight I became the mate the day I went to sea…

When I was nine I ate a lime the day I went to sea…

When I was ten I scrubbed a den the day I went to sea…
