Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

Instead of a toadie we have a fishie in this song

Over in the meadow
In an iddy biddy pool
Swam three little fishies
And a momma fishie too
Swim said the momma fishie,
Swim if you can
So they swam and they swam
Right over the dam.

Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
And they swam and they swam
Right over the dam.

Stop cried the mommy fish
Or you will get lost
But the three little fishies
Didn't wanna be bossed
The three little fishies
Went off on a spree
And they swam and they swam
Right out to the sea.

Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
And they swam and they swam
Right out to the sea.

Wee squealed the fishies
We're havin some fun
We'll swim in the sea
Till the day is done
They swam and they swam
Until it was dark
When all of a sudden
They saw shark.

Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Till all of a sudden
They saw a shark.

Help cried the fishies
Look at the whale
And quick as they could
They turned on their tail
And back to the itty bitty pool they swam
And they swam and they swam
Back over the dam.

Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
Boop Boop diddum daddum waddum choo
And they swam and they swam
Back over the dam.

Luke in Tuscon, No the didn't mispell the lyrics. A Dam is a reservoir that holds water, either made by beavers or by humans. It is a perfectly exceptable word. You might want to work on your grammer and word recognition skills!

You should probably be made aware that in the "Alternative Lyrics" you've misspelled DAM. You added an "N" at the end which makes it entirely a differently and very vulgar and rude word. You probably want to change that considering this is a kid's song and a kid's site.
