Great Lakes Jack
Song for Teaching About the Great Lakes
Foster Brown


This song is available on Foster Brown's Naturally: Children's Nature Songs

This song is also available on Songs from a Naturalist's Notebook

I knew a sailor and his name was Jack
High diddle diddle dum day.
He had a boat and the boat had a crack
High diddle diddle dum day

He sailed on Lake Huron
But forgot and left the candle on.
So sailor Jack, he came back,
High diddle diddle dum day.

Chorus

He sailed on Lake Ontario
But the girl he loved was married-o.
So sailor Jack, he came back
High diddle diddle dum day.

Chorus

He sailed on Lake Michigan
But he met a pirate named Finnigan.
So sailor Jack, he came back,
High diddle diddle dum day.

Chorus

He sailed on Lake Erie
But the weather it turned dreary.
So sailor Jack, he came back
High diddle diddle dum day.

Chorus

He sailed on Lake Superior,
But its size made him feel inferior.
So sailor Jack, he came back
High diddle diddle dum day.
