There Was a Little Turtle


(Traditional chant)

There was a little turtle,
He lived in a box.
He swam in a puddle,
He climbed on the rocks.

He snapped at a mosquito,
He snapped at a flea.
He snapped at a minnow,
He snapped at me.

He caught the mosquito,
He caught the flea.
He caught the minnow,
But he didn’t catch me!
