Swim Little Fish-1944
  Regal MR 3720

Now once upon a time there was a little fish,
And he lived in a long long stream
And to make his way to the great wide world
Was this little fish's dream.

So a wise old trout who'd been about
Advised him what to do
Now he said "fishes wishes won't come true
If they dream the whole day through.

So swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on
We're two ambitious fishes you and I, we'll get our wishes if we try try try
Swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on
Blow little bubbles all the long day through,
Show little troubles that they can't stop you
For everything in life worthwhile is hard to get my friend
So don't give up and don t give in, it's worthwhile in the end.
Swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on,
Swim little fella till your dreams come true,
You'll meet the very little fish for you
You can be happy if you swim, swim, swim, swim, swim little fish swim on

Swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on
If you are weary at the river mouth, ask for a lift upon the next wave south
Swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on
Be very careful and you'll find it pays, mind how you cross the gulf and look both ways.

A chap can get a good square meal and all that he can wish
The wise fish goes to smokey roes, a good pull in for fish
Swim little fish swim on, swim little fish swim on
Always remember mother's good advice,
Steer clear of fishes who are not quite nice
Do nothing fishy fishy, swim swim swim swim,
Swim little fish swim on. O.k.
