歌詞 意味

When I was young I had some fun
※ The day I went to sea.
I jumped on board a piratre ship,
(2番以降は、jumpedがlivedに変わります)
and the captain said me
Oh we go this way, that way,
Portside, starbord
over the deep blue sea
this way,that way,
Port side, starbord(forward, backward)
over the deep blue sea

ぼくは幼い頃、楽しんだ
海に行ったある日、
海賊船に飛び乗って、
船長はぼくに言ったんだ
さぁ、われらは行くぞ!あっちやこっち
左舷や右舷、真っ青な海の上を方々に

振りつけのやり方

振付付きで歌うともっと楽しめます。

piratesで双眼鏡をのぞくマネをし、船が揺れる様子を表したフレーズは、This wayで右に傾き、That wayで左に体を傾けます。Forwardは前、backwardは後ろに倒れるように。
