The Silly Pirate Song
Traditional Children's Song Lyrics
Jack Hartmann, M.A.

 


This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Hip-Hop AlphaBop 2.

Suggested activities from Jack Hartmann:
Topic - Sequencing, auditory memory comprehension and brain/body connections
Activity – I wrote this song in Nov. 04 to give children a song to really have fun with as they develop important listening, comprehension and movement skills.

On parts, once there was a pirate…and yo,ho,ho, ho, hee…make
fists with both hands, elbows out to the sides & swing arms back &
forth – like a pirate!
For surfer – both arms out balancing like your on a surf board.
For shark – both arms straight out front and chomp/clap two times.
For helicopter – one arm high above head & swing around.
For octopus – both hands out front and wiggle fingers.
For submarine – shoot one arm up like a periscope.
For singing mermaid – both arms spread out like a star singer and
sing la, la, la.
For police boat – one arm out front hand open with palm out like a
traffic policeman stopping traffic.
On a pirates life is…touch your head like your thinking & then
shake pointer finger like your saying no and then finally both arms
hands up in frustration on “there are too many interruptions.”
Get a pirate eye patch & hat to add fun!

Children can retell story, characters & sequence.
Draw some pirate pictures too. Enjoy lots of giggles & fun!
