Does Anyone Know a Nursery Rhyme About a Fish?

Nanny J said that the kids learned a new song in class this week. She was unfamiliar with the tune and only caught enough of the words to know that it was about a fish. I sang her "three little fishes and the mama too . . . and they swam and they swam, over the dam," but it's not that one. We've combed through our kiddie CDs and haven't found it. Let me know if you know of a fish song! We want to learn the words so that we can sing it for Q at home too.

We got our first unprompted "please" from Q today. He was highly motivated by the sight of a vanilla milk shake.

Is it "Slippery Fish?" Slippery fish, slipper fish, sliding throught the water.....

I was going to say 'slippery fish', but momma got to it first. Also, I don't remember all of the words, so it would really be kind of useless to you...

Momma to LG and HBM - thank you! I found a sound clip of Slippery Fish, and I'll sing it to Q tomorrow to see if it's the song.
