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!


Baby beluga in the deep blue sea
Swim so wild and you swim so free
Heaven above and the sea below
Just a little white whale on the go

Baby beluga, oh baby beluga,
Is the water warm? Is your mama home
With you, so happy
Way down yonder where the dolphins play
Where they dive and splash all day
The waves roll in and the waves roll out
See the water squirting out of your spout

Baby beluga, oh baby beluga,
Sing your little song, sing for all your friends,
We like to hear you
When it’s dark and you’re home and fed
Curling up snug in your waterbed
Stars are shining and the moon is bright
Good night, little whale, goodnight

Baby beluga, baby beluga, with tomorrow’s sun
Another day has come, you’ll soon be waking
Baby beluga, baby beluga, is the water warm?
Is your mother home with you, so happy

Actions:
Hands together, make the shape of a small whale jumping over the waves.


Baby shark,
Doot-doo, doot-doo-doo-doo
Baby shark,
Doot-doo, doot-doo-doo-doo
Baby shark,
Doot-doo, doot-doo-doo-doo
Baby Shark!

Mommy Shark…
Daddy shark…
Grandma shark…
Going swimming…
See a shark…
Swimming fast…
Safe at last…
Bye-bye shark…



Come all ye young sailor men, listen to me
I’ll sing you a song of the fish of the sea

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes

Oh, first come the whale, the biggest of all
He clumb up a loft and let ev’ry sail fall

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes

And next came the mack’rel with his striped back
He hauled aft the sheets and boarded each tack

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes

Then come the porpoise with his short snout
He went to the wheel, calling, “Ready, about.”

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes

Then come the smelt, the smallest of all
He jumped to the poop, and sung out, “Topsail haul!”

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes

The herring come saying, “I’m king of the seas
If you want any wind, why I’ll blow you a breeze.”

Then blow ye winds westerly, westerly blow
We’re bound to the south’ard so steady she goes


Here is the sea, the wavy sea,
Here is the boat, and here is me.
And all the fishes, way down below,
Wiggle their tails, and away, they, go.


I have a little tiny house,
A tiny house, a tiny house.
I have a little tiny house,
That’s right beside the seaside.
Hi-dee-ho, de-hi-dee-hi-dee-ho,
That’s right beside the seaside.

I do no work, I sit and watch,
I sit and watch, I sit and watch.
I do no work, I sit and watch,
The high tide and the low tide.
Hi-dee-ho, de-hi-dee-hi-dee-ho,
The high tide and the low tide.

And here I live and eat and sleep,
And eat and sleep, and eat and sleep;
And here I live and eat and sleep,
Contented by the fireside.
Hi-dee-ho, de-hi-dee-hi-dee-ho,
Contented by the fireside.
