A sailor went to sea sea sea
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.

Ten Little Boys
Ten little boys went out to dine,
One choked his little self and then there
Nine little boys sat up very late
One overslept himself and then there
Eight little boys travelling in Devon
One said he'd stay there and then there
Seven little boys chopping up sticks
One chopped himself in half and then there
Six little boys playing with a hive
A bumble bee stung one, and then there
Five little boys going in for law
One got in chancery and then there
Four little boys going out to sea
A red herring swallowed one then there
Three little boys walking in a Zoo
A big bear hugged one and then there
Two little boys sitting in the sun
One got frizzled up, and then there
One little boy living all alone
He got married and then there
