The Goldfish

Goldfish

CD Version:

This was a song that I wrote when I first started teaching. For some reason I stopped singing it for a while. When it resurfaced, I decided to have the fish do more than just swim and one student informed that "fish don't do that!" This version was born.

 

 

 

Lots of little fish


Were sleeping on a rock


In the bottom of the ocean

They lifted up their heads

And they shook out their tails

And they said


Let’s go swimming!

 

Let’s go swimming


Let’s go swimming


Yeah, let’s go swimming

Let’s go swimming


Let’s go swimming


In the bottom of the ocean

 

Then the little fish


Got so very, very tired


That they came


Back to the rock


They put down their heads

And they put down their tails

And they took a little nap

 

And when they woke up

They were a little bit dirty

So they took a shower

 

And they washed their hair

And they washed their ears

And they washed


Their tummies

And they washed their


Very long fishy beards


And they washed their noses

And they washed their toeses

And then they said


“Wait a minute, we’re fish!

We don’t take showers!”

 

Let’s go swimming...

 

Then the little fish...

 

And when woke up

They decided to

Ride their bicycles

 

So they rode to the left

And they rode to the right

And they rode all day


And they rode all night

Night night night night

They rode down the hill

And then faster still


And then they said


“Wait a minute, we’re fish!

We don’t ride bicycles!”

 

Let’s go swimming...

 

Then the little fish...

 

And when they woke up

They decided to


Brush their teeth

 

So they got out


Their toothbrush


And their toothpaste


And they squeezed a little on

They really liked the taste

Then they put it
In their mouth


They brushed


North and south

Chika-ch-chika-ch-chika-ch

Chika-ch-chika-ch


And then they said

 

“Wait a minute, we’re fish!

We don’t brush our teeth!

 

Let’s go swimming...

 

Let’s go swimming...

 

 

DVD Version:

Lots of little fish were sleeping on a rock
In the bottom of the ocean
They lifted up their heads
And they shook out their tails
And they said let’s go swimming

Let’s go swimming, lets go swimming
Yeah let’s go swimming
Let’s go swimming, let’s go swimming 
In the bottom of the ocean

Then the little fish got so very, very tired
That they came back to the rock
They put down their heads
And they put down their tails
And they took a little nap

And when they woke up
They were a little bit dirty
So they took a shower

And they washed their hair
And they washed their ears
And they washed their tummies
And they washed their very long fishy beards
And they washed their noses
And they washed their toeses
And then they said

“Wait a minute, we’re fish!
We don’t take showers!”

Let’s go swimming, lets go swimming
Yeah let’s go swimming
Let’s go swimming, let’s go swimming 
In the bottom of the ocean

Then the little fish got so very, very tired
That they came back to the rock
They put down their heads
And they put down their tails
And they took a little nap

And when they woke up
They decided to ride their bicycles

So they rode to the left
And they rode to the right
And they rode all day
And they rode all night, night, night, night, night
They rode down the hill
And then faster still
And then they said,

“Wait a minute, we’re fish!
We don’t ride bicycles!”

Let’s go swimming, lets go swimming
Yeah let’s go swimming
Let’s go swimming, let’s go swimming 
In the bottom of the ocean

Then the little fish got so very, very tired
That they came back to the rock
And they put down their heads
And they put down their tails
And they took a little nap

And when they woke up
They decided to brush their teeth!

So they got out their toothbrush
And their toothpaste
And they squeezed a little on
They really liked the taste
Then they put it in their mouth
They brushed north and south
Chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee
Chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee-chick-a-chee
And then they said,

“Wait a minute, we’re fish!
We don’t brush our teeth!:

Let’s go swimming, lets go swimming
Yeah let’s go swimming
Let’s go swimming, let’s go swimming 
In the bottom of the ocean

Let’s go swimming, lets go swimming
Yeah let’s go swimming
Let’s go swimming, let’s go swimming 
In the bottom of the ocean
