Gonna Swim in the Ocean
From Mel’s Desk
Gonna swim in the ocean
Gonna fish with a net
Gonna wade in the water
And I’m gonna get WET!

The Ocean Song
Ocean Version of The Elevator Song
From Jbrary

Oh the ocean is great and the ocean is grand. Bounce
There are lots of tall ships and very little land.
And we sleep down deep in a hammock near the floor
And this is what we do when we go out the door:
We ride the waves going up, we ride the waves going down Lift
We ride the waves going up, we ride the waves going down
We ride the waves going up, we ride the waves going down
And we turn around.

I’m a Little Fish
tune: I’m a Little Teapot
From King County Library System

I’m a little fishy, watch me swim. Swimming arms
Here is my tail, here is my fin. Wiggle one leg, then the other
When I want to have fun with my friends,
I wiggle my tail and dive right in.

Splashin’ Up and Down
tune: Bumping Up & Down[in my little red wagon] by Raffi
From Mel’s Desk

Splashin’ up and down in my little red rowboat
Splashin’ up and down in my little red rowboat
Splashin’ up and down in my little red rowboat
Won’t you be my darling? (Bounce baby on your lap)
Lookin’ out to sea in my little red rowboat… Shade eyes with your hand
Wavin’ to a whale in my little red rowboat… Wave!
Don’t stand up or you might tip over! Lean baby to right or left!

The Fish in the Sea
Tune: The Wheels on the Bus
From King County Library System

The fish in the sea
Go swish, swish, swish, wave scarf side to side
swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish
The fish in the sea go swish, swish, swish
All day long.

Verses:
Dolphins in the sea
Swim round and round paint circle in front of you with scarf

The sand in the sea
Drifts down, down, down slowly lower scarf or throw scarf and watch it drift to the floor

The waves on the sea
Go up and down, wave scarf up and down
