Have you any scales?

I like to play,
I live in the blue sea
Each and every day.

Fishy Fishy Swim to Me to the tune of Cobbler Cobbler Mend My Shoe

Swim right over in the sea.

Swimming is fun for me and you!

Joey Had a Little Clam to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb

Joey had a little clam,
little clam, little clam,
Joey had a little clam,
It's shell was striped with blue.
And everywhere that Joey went
Joey went, Joey went,
Everywhere that Joey went,
The clam did follow too.
He took the clam to school
one day,
School one day, school one day,
He took the clam to school one day
and dropped it in the pool.

Swim around the ocean,
A lot of commotion,
Coral coral,
We all swim around.

The crab crawled over the sand.
The blue whale laughed,
To see such fun
And the crab ran away to the land.

And a kind sea creature was he.
