Information About 3 Little Fishies
"Three Little fishes" is a children's song that was adapted by American jazz bandleader Horace Kirby Dowell into a jazz standard in 1939. The song is believed to have been adapted from a traditional southern children's song by Josephine Judson Carringer and continues to be enjoyed as a children's song.
The song became a smash hit for the Kay Kyser orchestra in 1941, when the band was riding high in popularity as a result of the music-quiz radio program called Kay Kyser's kollege of musical knowledge. The song has been covered by many other artists since.
Some versions of this song have only one whale (not whales)
Some versions see the shark after dark (instead of "it was a lark").
