GUEST,Bagpuss Lyr Req: thou shall have a little fishy (17) RE: Lyr Req: thou shall have a little fishy 25 Jun 03


The link Masato gives above is the version which is sung to a different tune to the one on the advert. On the version on the advert (and the one more popularly known, thanks perhaps the the aforementioned TV show), the verse is:

"Thou shalt have a fishy
On a little Dishy
Thou shalt have a fishy
When the boat comes in"

The chorus is:

"Dance to your/thi daddy
My little laddie
Dance to your daddy
When the boat comes in"

Or:

"Dance to your/thi daddy
Sing to your/thi mammy
Dance to your/thi daddy
When the boat comes in"
