Ocean Shell
I found a great big shell one day
Upon the ocean floor
I held it close up to my ear
I heard the ocean roar!

I found a tiny shell one day
Upon the ocean sand
The waves had worn it nice and smooth
It felt nice in my hand

Once I Caught a Fish Alive
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Once I caught a fish alive
6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Then I let him go again
Why did I let him go?
‘Cuz he bit my finger so
Which finger did he bite?
This little finger on the right

Ring Around the Rosie, Fishies in the Sea
Ring around the rosie
A pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes
We all fall down!

Fishes in the water
Fishes in the sea
We all jump up
With a 1, 2, 3!

Starfish, Starfish
Starfish, starfish, resting on the shore
The tide rolled in and then there were four

Starfish, starfish, dancing in the sea
The tide rolled in and then there were three

Starfish, starfish, on stones stuck true
The tide rolled in and then there were two

Starfish, starfish, sparkle in the sun
The tide rolled in and then there was one

Starfish, starfish, in a pool alone
The tide rolled in but you stayed at home

The tide rolls in and the tide rolls out
The waves crash over, around and about

But the last remaining starfish in a tide pool stayed
And that’s where you will find her on a sunny day
