When I was one I sucked my thumb

When I was one I sucked my thumb

When I was ONE I sucked my thumb,
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me -

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

When I was TWO I buckled my shoe,
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me -

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

When I was THREE I bashed my knee,
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me -

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

When I was FOUR I knocked on the door,
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me -

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!

When I was FIVE I learnt to dive,
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me -

We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea,
We're going this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
That's the life for me!
