Marine and aquatic animals slip, slide and splash in our oceans, rivers and lakes. We imitate some of their movements when we swim, leaping like salmon, hopping like frogs or spouting like whales. This song was so
much fun to write, as I wove in as many animals as I could in rhythm and rhyme. Children can move across the floor and jump into the air, doing the actions with their hands and bodies.

Splishin’ and Splashin’ around in the water
I’m Splishin’… Splashin’
Jumping around making waves.
I can dive in the water …
Slide like an otter…
Flip like a porpoise, spout like a whale.
I can leap like a salmon…
Float like a seahorse …
Slap like a beaver and I don’t need a tail.
I can croak like a frog …
Hop off a log …
Dabble like a duck and glide like a swan.
I can bark like a seal …
Spark like an eel …
Meow like a catfish deep in the pond.
