Lyrics

Sung to the tune of Sailing, Sailing, over the bounding main

Swimming, swimming, in the swimming pool.
When days are hot, when days are cold, in the swimming pool.
Sidestroke, breaststroke, fancy diving too,
Now don’t you wish you never had anything else to do?

Actions

Swimming
Make motions with arms as if swimming.
In the swimming pool
Draw a square in the air in front of you with your fingers.
When days are hot
Brush hand across forehead.
When days are cold
Cross arms across chest and shiver.
In the swimming pool
Repeat action from above.
Sidestroke
Sidestroke swimming motion.
Breaststroke
Breaststroke swimming motion.
Fancy diving too
Using both arms make diving motions.
Now don’t you wish you never had anything else to do
Shake pointer finger

Repeat

Repeat the verse, humming the first line and singing the rest. (Continue to do the actions for all lines, sung or hummed!)

Repeat again, humming the first and second lines and singing the rest.

Continue in this fashion until you are humming the whole song.
