Sparkling Seas

Fairly simple tune suitable for fiddle beginners. Reminiscent of children splashing in the sea on a sunny day. Also sounds OK on the piano.

Re: Sparkling Seas

Best played fairly fast.

Re: Sparkling Seas

It has words :
The sun is shining on the sea.
It shines for you, it shines for me,
It sure cheers the little fish -
Or so we all wish.

Chorus
The sun shines on the deep blue sea and sparkles.
I see it, I like it,
How happy we will be.

Let’s jump into the water now

posted too soon -
2nd verse:-

Let’s jump into the water now
And splash about and make a row.
We love it, we swim so well,
That sun weaves a spell.
Chorus

Very suitable tune and words for young ones to sing or play along on the fiddle or whatever.

Have set this out in 2/4 (polka) time as on midi it sounded too slow as a reel. Hoping this is permitted as title remains as reel - notes not changed.

Re: Sparkling Seas

This is a very catchy tune.
