Way Over the Irish Sea

When I was one, I had just begun
The day I went to sea
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me
"We'll go this way, that way, forward and back
Way over the Irish Sea
A bottle of Coke to soothe my throat
And that's the life for me

Da, da, dum; da, da, dum . . 
When I was two, I tied my shoe . . 
When I was three, I bumped my knee . . 
When I was four, I shut the door . . 
When I was five, I was still alive . . 
When I was six, I gathered sticks . . 
When I was seven, I was almost in heaven . . 
When I was eight, I closed the gate . . 
When I was nine, I was feeling fine . . 
When I was ten, I started over again . . 

Suggested motions:
"...climbed aboard..." as if climbing up the side of a ship 
"...the captain said..." give salute
"We'll go..." bend at the waist; first left, right, forward, and back
"...over the Irish Sea." make waves with hand
"...bottle of coke..." as if chugging a soft drink 
" soothe my throat..." touch throat with hand
"...that's the life..." slap knee and raise hand 
"...da, da, dum..." step forward, step back
