Turtle Splash by Cathryn Falwell

MY LITTLE TURTLE
This is my little turtle.
He lives alone in a shell.
He likes his little home.
He thinks it’s really swell.
He pokes out his head
When he wants to eat.
Then he pulls it back in.
Tune: “On Top of Old Smokey”
Some turtles swim over the ocean.
Some turtles swim over the sea.
Some turtles grow very big
As big as you and me.
Turtles, turtles, swimming here and there.
Turtles, turtles, turtles everywhere.
Tiny Tim the Turtle
I had a little turtle, his name was Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap
and now he’s sick in bed with a bubble in his throat hiccup
A Little Turtle
There was a little turtle He lived in a box
He swam in a puddle
He climbed on the rocks He snapped at a mosquito He snapped at a flea He snapped at a minnow
He snapped at me
He caught the mosquito He caught the flea He caught the minnow
But he didn’t catch me
