Ocean Songs


Catch a Fish (Tune: Row, Row, Row your boat)

Catch, catch, catch  a fish,

Hook it on your line.

Reel it, reel it, reel it,

This one will be mine.


Music- ” Down by the Shore” (tune of “Down by the Bay”

Down by the shore

In the sand and the sun

I like to dive and splash and run

and as the waves

roll out and in

I’ll get warm in the sun

and have lots of fun

Down by the shore

Down By The Sea (Sung to Boop Boop Dida Dida Wada Choo… You know: Three little fishies and a mama fishie too!)

Down by the sea

At the beautiful sea

I see a big blue whale lookin at me

I see a shark

And a starfish lookin at me too!

Down by the sea

The beautiful sea!

Have the children tell you what is looking at them down by the sea.


To “The Wheels on the Bus”

The sharks in the sea go chomp, chomp, chomp!

chomp, chomp, chomp!

chomp, chomp, chomp!

The sharks in the sea go chomp, chomp, chomp!

All through the day!

We had the kids tell us different sea creatures and this is what they told us:

The fish in the sea go swim, swim, swim…

The lobsters in the sea go pinch, pinch, pinch…

The octopus in the sea go wiggle wiggle wiggle…

The sea horse in the sea rocks back and forth…

The whale in the sea goes quirt squirt squirt…

The clam in the sea goes open and shut…

The crabs in the sea go click click click…

The jellyfish in the sea go “bloop bloop bloop”!
