Three Little Fishes

Down (point down) in the valley (Make a "V" with hands with knuckles facing in.) in a little bitty pool (Use index & thumbs to make a small circle.)
Were three little fishes (Hold up 3 fingers.) and their mommy fishy too. (Bounce curls in hair while sticking hip out.)
"Swim!" said the mommy fishy, "Swim if you can!" (Hands together with swimming actions.)
And they swam and they swam right over the dam. (Do overhand swimming strokes.)

Boom boom dittum dattum wattum, (Move your hips in a circle like you're doing the hula.) choo (Hold your nose, and duck down in a "going-down-in-the-water" style) (3x)
And they swam and they swam all over the dam (Do overhand swimming strokes.)

(Destiny, come up with actions for the rest of the verses!)

"Stop!" said the mommy fishy, "You'll get lost!"
But the three little fishes didn't want to be bossed
So the three little fishes set off on a spree
And they swam and they swam right out to the sea


"Whee!" yelled the fishes, "oh here's a lot of fun.
Swim in the sea 'til the day is done."
So they swam and they swam, it was all a lark.
'Til all of a sudden they saw a shark.


"Whoa!" cried the fishes, "oh look at the whales."
Quick as they could they turned on their tails
Back toward the pool in the valley they swam
And they swam and they swam back over the dam.
