Mermaids

Julián is a Mermaid by Jessica Love (Candlewick Press)

 

I’m a Little Mermaid/Merman      (Tune: “I’m a Little Teapot”)

I’m a little mermaid, see my tail,

My friends are the dolphins, And also the whales.

I live in the ocean so big & blue,

I love to swim with the little fish, too.

 

I’m a little merman, strong and brave,

See my big ol’ tail, I can make it wave.

I live in the ocean so big & blue.

I love to play with the little fish, too.

 

Part-Time Mermaid by Deborah Underwood (Disney-Hyperion)

Fingerplay: Five Little Mermaids 

Five little mermaids were swimming near the shore;

One took a dive and then there were four.

Four little mermaids were swimming out to sea;

One went for food, and then there were three.

Three little mermaids, “Now what shall we do?”

One swam away, and then there were two.

Two little mermaids were having great fun;

But one took a plunge, then there was one.

One little mermaid, “I like the warm sun.”

Away she went and then there were none.

Have You Ever Seen a Mermaid    (Tune:   “Have You Ever Seen a Lassie”)

Have you ever seen a mermaid,

a mermaid, a mermaid?

Have you ever seen a mermaid

Swim this way and that?

Swim this way and that way  

Swim this way and that way,

Have you ever seen a mermaid

Swim this way and that?

 

Have you ever seen a merman,

A merman, a merman?

Have you ever seen a merman,

Flip his tail this way and that way

Have you ever seen a merman,

Flip his tail this way and that?
