One, Two, Three, Four, Five

Once I caught a fish alive

Singing a nursery rhyme is a great way to bond with your child, support their language development and build their counting skills!

Have a go at following the song lyrics and watch the video for the music below:

One, Two, Three, Four, Five lyrics

One, two, three, four, five,
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on my right.
