Boat Songs


To the tune of “Twinkle twinkle”

Sailboat sailboat in the sea

won’t you come and carry me

through the ocean, through the bay

to any place that’s far away

Sailboat, sailboat in the sea

won’t you come and carry me


Here is the sea. (hand makes wave motions) The wavy sea.

Here is a boat. (hold hand horizontally in front of you with palm facing your chest and thumb lying flat along the fingers.)
And here is me. ( raise thumb)
All of the fishes ( use other hand below boat hand)
Way down below.
Wiggle their tails, (wiggle fingers)
And away they go!


To the tune of “Twinkle twinkle”

Sailboat sailboat in the sea
won’t you come and carry me
through the ocean, through the bay
to any place that’s far away
Sailboat, sailboat in the sea
won’t you come and carry me

Row row row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream


Here is the sea. (hand makes wave motions) The wavy sea.
Here is a boat. (hold hand horizontally in front of you with palm facing your chest and thumb lying flat along the fingers.) And here is me. ( raise thumb) All of the fishes ( use other hand below boat hand) Way down below.
Wiggle their tails, (wiggle fingers)
And away they go!
