Ocean Songs


“I’m a Little Fishy” Tune of “I’m a little tea pot”

I’m a little fishy, watch me swim Here is my tail, here is my fin, When I want to have fun with my friends, I wiggle my tail an dive right in!


Idea from Mailbox/99
Mr. Lobster and Mrs. Crab (song) tune Old MacDonald had a farm

Mr. Lobster and Mrs. Crab Pinch and snap all day. Mr. Lobster and Mrs. Crab Pinch and snap all day. With a pinch pinch here and a snap, snap there. Here a pinch, There a snap, Everywhere a pinch,snap. Mr. Lobster and Mrs. Crab Pinch and snap all day.


Gertie The Goldfish

Gertie the goldfish goes kiss, kiss, kiss (smack lips 3 times)

She looks at me and goes kiss, kiss, kiss (smack lips 3 times)

She doesn’t laugh, doesn’t sing, doesn’t do anything

Just blows big kisses like this

Kiss, Kiss, kiss, kiss (smack lips four times)


Dolphin Action Song

Sung to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Dolphin, Dolphin, in the sea,

Dolphin, Dolphin, wild and free.

Swimming, swimming in the sea.

Just as free as you can be.

Dolphin, Dolphin, in the sea,

Swimming, swimming wild and free.


To the tune of London Bridge…

Silly Sally sells seashells,

sells seashells,

sells seashells.

Silly Sally sells seashells

Down by the old seashore.
