BIG Fish ! - Action Chant on Jonah for younger children.
BIG fish , BIG fish, (make fish movements with arms.)
Swimming in the sea.
BIG fish, *swish ,*swish. (*rub hands against each other)
Who can you see ? (hands up to eyes like goggles)
Open-up your BIG mouth (make big mouth with both arms)
Wide as can be -
Swallow up Jonah (close arms/mouth and clap)
You'll have him for tea ! (rub tummy)
BIG fish, BIG fish,
Swimming in the sea
BIG fish, swish, swish.
Does Jonah taste yummy ? (rub tummy)
Can't keep this man down (point down at stomach)
In your BIG fish tum-my, (or , God's heard his plea)
Have to bring him up and set him free ! (jump into air with hands raised)
