Five Little Fishes


(Traditional chant)

Five little fishes swimming in a pool
First one said, “This pool is cool”
Second one said, “The pool is deep”
Third one said, “I want to sleep”
Fourth one said, “Let’s dive and dip”
Fifth one said, “I spy a ship”
Fisherman boat comes
Line goes ker-splash
Away the five little fishes dash
