Hi blackcat

 

Don't know that one .............. did think about being naughty and making up my own words..............but resisted!

 

Can only think of - She sells sea shells - Oh I do like to be beside the seaside - A sailor went to sea - any good?

This is the one I was thinking of, by A.A. Milne

 

I went down to the shouting sea,

Taking Christopher down with me,

For Nurse had given us sixpence each-

And down we went to the beach.

 

We had sand in the eyes and the ears and the nose,

And sand in the hair, and sand-between-the-toes.

Whenever a good nor'wester blows,

Christopher is certain of

Sand-between-the-toes.

 

 

The sea was galloping grey and white;

Christopher clutched his sixpence tight;

We clambered over the humping sand-

And Christopher held my hand.

 

We had sand in the eyes and the ears and the nose,

And sand in the hair, and sand-between-the-toes.

Whenever a good nor'wester blows,

Christopher is certain of

Sand-between-the-toes.

 

 

There was a roaring in the sky;

The sea-gulls cried as they blew by;

We tried to talk, but had to shout-

Nobody else was out.

 

When we got home, we had sand in the hair,

In the eyes and the ears and everywhere;

Whenever a good nor'wester blows,

Christopher is found with

Sand-between-the-toes.

Could it be this one?

Sand in your fingernails, sand between your toes, sand in your ear-holes, sand up your nose!

Sand in your sandwiches sand in your bananas, sand in your bed at night, sand in your pyjamas!

Sand in your sandals, sand in your hair, sand in your knickers, sand everywhere!

 

It's from year 8 Poem Texts!
