Swimming, swimming in the swimming hole,
When days are hot when days are cold,
in the swimming hole.
Side-stroke, breast-stroke, fancy diving too.
I'll bet you wish you never had
anything else to do, but....
Repeat the song, each time leaving out one phrase, doing only the actions. End the song with the word "But".
Swimming, swimming: swimming action
In my swimming pool: trace outline of pool
Days are hot: wipe hand across forehead
Days are cold: shiver
Side-stroke: do the sidestroke
Breast-stroke: do the breaststroke
Fancy diving: dive action
