Can you help me figure out what song I'm thinking of?

My grandfather used to always sing me this song about fish. I can't remember it for the life of me and I *think* it went something along the lines of "Swim said the momma fish and the baby fish swam"
I can't ask my grandparents cause they both have passed and my mom can't remember it either.
Help?!

  • "Whee!" yelled the little fishies, "Here's a lot of fun
    We'll swim in the sea till the day is done"
    They swam and they swam, and it was a lark
    Till all of a sudden they saw a shark!
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    Till all of a sudden they saw a shark!

    "Help!" cried the little fishies, "Gee, look at all the whales!"
    And quick as they could, they turned on their tails
    And back to the pool in the meadow they swam
    And they swam and they swam back over the dam
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    Boop boop dit-tem dat-tem what-tem Chu!
    And they swam and they swam back over the dam

  • THREE LITTLE FISHES (Fwee Widdo Fiddies)

    Down in the meadow in a little bitty pool,
    Swam three little fishies and the mama fishy, too.
    "Swim!" said the mama fishy, "Swim if you can!"
    And they swam and they swam right over the dam.

    cho: Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    And they swam and they swam all over the dam.

    "Stop!" said the mama fishy, "You'll get lost!"
    But the three little fishies didn't want to be bossed,
    So the three little fishies went out on a spree
    And they swam and they swam right out to the sea.

    chorus

    "Whee!" said the little fishies, "This is fun!
    Let's swim and swim 'til the day is done1"
    So they swam and they swam, and it was a lark.
    Then, all of a sudden, they saw a shark.

    And they swam and swam back over the dam.

  • My grandpa always used to sing just the first verse of the song:
    Down by the meadow in a little bitty pool,
    Swam 3 little fishies and a momma fishy to,
    Swim said the momma fishy swim if you can
    and they swam and they swam all over the dam:
    Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    Boop boop dittum dattum wattum, shoo
    And they swam and they swam all over the dam.

    I believe that the song is called Three Little Fishies, by Kay Kyser.
    Not 100% sure though!
    Now I really miss my grandpa! He even sang that to my kids! :-)
