"There were five little fishies swimming in the sea. . ."

Jamie: Hi, friends. I’m Jamie.

Kelly: And I’m Kelly.

Jamie: And we’re going to be doing "The Five Little Fishies in the Sea," but first we need to make sure that we can get our fishie movements just like this. And we’re also going to be counting to five, so I want you to count to five with me, okay? Ready, one, two, three, four, five. Now that we know how to count to five and we know how to make our fishies go, you can play along with me. Just like this, okay?

There were five little fishies swimming in the sea/Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark/ as quiet as can be/And snap, now there were four little fishies swimming in the sea/Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark, as quiet as can be/And snap now there were three little fishies swimming in the sea

Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark, as quiet as can be/And snap/Now there were two little fishies swimming in the sea/Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark, as quiet as can be/And snap/Now there was one little fishy swimming in the sea/Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark, as quiet as can be/And snap.

What happened to all of the little fishies?

Kelly: I don’t know.

Jaime: I think there’s more fishies left in this sea, right? Let’s go back to five.

Kelly: Yes.

Jaime: Now there were five little fishies swimming in the sea/Teasing Mr. Shark, you can’t catch me/Along came Mr. Shark, as quiet as can be/And all the fishies went snap.

And that’s "The Five Little Fishies." I hope you played along with me and that you teased Mr. Shark, too.
