Did You Ever See A Fishy? (Tune: Did You Ever See A Lassie?)
Did you ever see a fishy,
a fishy, a fishy? (put hands together and move them like a fish)
Did you ever see a fishy,
swim this way and that? (Put hands together and move them like a fish)

Swim this way and that way,
and that way and this way? (put hands together and move them like a fish)
Did you ever see a fishy,
swim this way and that? (put hands together and move them like a fish)

repeat the song replacing "swim" with other verbs such as: slide (slide hands together), swish (wiggle fingers), and splash (clap hands)
