Song: I Saw an Orca
Sung to the tune of "Frog Went A-Courtin"
Steps
Step 1
"I Saw an Orca"
 

I saw an orca in the sea, uh-huh.
I saw an orca in the sea, uh-huh.
I saw an orca in the sea.
He swam by my boat and looked at me,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

 

His skin was shiny black and white, uh-huh.
His skin was shiny black and white, uh-huh.
His skin was shiny black and white.
It fit like a glove so nice and tight,
uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

 

That orca caught a fish to eat, uh-huh.
That orca caught a fish to eat, uh-huh.
That orca caught a fish to eat.
He swallowed it whole—what a tasty treat, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh.

 

- Jennifer Bové
