A sailor went to sea, sea, sea

(ed: a handclapping game - but we need to know the sequence of hand claps as well if anyone remembers them please?)

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea.
To see what he could see, see, see.
But all that he could see, see, see.
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea.

(ed: we asked for the sequence... and Frances sent this in!)

We used to stand facing a partner, and alternately clap own hands and then clap against our partner's hands for "a sailor went to" and then three hefty claps on the thighs for "sea sea sea".

Similarly for the other lines:

To (clap own hands) see (clap both hands against partner) what (own hands) he (with partner) could (own) see (thighs) see (thighs) see (thighs) and so on.
