  • A Sailor Went To Sea Sea Sea

    To make this one a pirate song, just switch the lyric from ‘sailor’ to ‘pirate’. This song is great for clapping, which is such a fun and sociable musical activity. It’s very good for rhythm and beat recognition, and excellent for developing co-ordination. In this video the kids are clapping quite a complex pattern, but this could easily be simplified for younger ones just clapping on the beat.

  • The Big Ship Sails

    This song is a reference to the opening of the Manchester shipping canal, which was opened for the big ships to access the Atlantic in 1894. It was always a very popular song for skipping games, but there is also another special way to sing it as described below.

    The big ship sails on the alley-alley-o

    The alley-alley-o, the alley-alley-o,

    The big ship sails on the alley-alley-o

    On the last day of September.

     

    The captain says that’ll never never do,

    Never never do, never never do.

    The captain says that’ll never never do,

    On the last day of September.

     

    The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea

    The bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea,

    The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea

    On the last day of September.

     

    We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea,

    The deep, blue sea, the deep, blue sea,

    We all dip our heads in the deep, blue sea,

    On the last day of September.
