Poems & Rhymes

My 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 deep, blue sea, sea, sea !!!

Origin
Initially called 'My Father Went to Sea', this rhyme became more widely known as "A Sailor Went to Sea." Another variation:
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 deep, dark bottom of the sea, sea, sea.
