The Fishes

The Fishes

See the tiny fishes dart, to and fro, to and fro,
Like a gleaming ray of light, swift they go, swift they go.
In the babbling brook they play, darting near and then away,
To and fro, to and fro, to and fro.

Let me hold you in my hand, little fish, in the brook,
At your shining silver scales let me look, let me look.
I will very careful be, you need have no fear of me
Little fish in the brook, in the brook.

To your hands we cannot come, little friend, kind and dear.
Here we're happy, safe and free, leave us here, leave us here.
We must in the water stay, cannot with the children play,
Little friend kind and dear, kind and dear.

The Fishes is written in 6/8 time. You will cound 1,2,3,4,5,6.
An eighth note gets one count and a quarter note two counts.
