Sea sung ditty

Eeeh you can say what you like about the arts but a good old sing your heart out verse of song can work wonders. They say.

How’s this then? Filched from ‘The Campfire Songbook’ by the plagiarisors  at the towers without shame or regret. Speaking personally, it was the last line that did it for me!

UP THE IRISH SEA

       D                                                        A7                 D

When I was one I sucked my thumb and sailed away to sea,

                                                                 A7               D

I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the Captain said to me

                      D                                         A7               D

“We’re sailing north southeast west and UP the Irish Sea

         G                     D                      A7                    D

“A bottle of rum to fill my tum, and that’s the life for me”.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
