Oh me! Oh my!

I would just like to let everyone know, this is my favorite Dr. Suess book! I had to memorize it in 9th grade with a group of girls in speech (or something like that) and recite it in front of the class. So now, the whole rhyme is in my head… forever and ever. Thank you Mrs. Speech teacher who made me do this pointless project. These words have been in my mind today so here you go, I’ll share them with YOU! 🙂

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish
By: Dr. Suess

One fish
two fish
Red fish
Blue fish.

Black fish
Blue fish
Old fish
New fish

This one has
a little star.

This one has a little car.
Say! What a lot
of fish there are.

Yes. Some are red. And some are blue.
Some are old. And some are new.
Some are sad.
And some are glad.
And some are very, very bad.

Why are they
sad and glad and bad?
I do not know.
Go ask your dad

Some are thin.
And some are fat.
The fat one has
a yellow hat.

From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.

Here are some
who like to run.
They run for fun
in the hot, hot sun.

Oh me! Oh my!
Oh me! Oh my!
What a lot
of funny things go by.

Some have two feet
and some have four.
Some have six feet
and some have more.

Where do they come from? I can’t say.
But I bet they have come
a long, long way.

We see them come.
We see them go.

Some are fast.
And some are slow.
Some are high.
And some are low.

Not one of them
is like another.
Don’t ask us why.
Go ask your mother.

Look at his fingers!
One, two, three…
How many fingers
do I see?

One, two, three, four
five, six, seven,
eight , nine, ten.
He has eleven!

This is something new.
I wish I had
eleven, too!

Did you ever ride a Wump?
We have a Wump
with just one hump.

we know a man
called Mr. Gump.
Mr. Gump has a seven hump Wump.
if you like to go Bump! Bump!
Just jump on the hump of the Wump of Gump

Who am I?
My name is Ned.
I do not like
my little bed.

This is no good.
This is not right.
My feet stick out
of bed all night.

And when I pull them in,
Oh, dear!
My head sticks out of bed
up here!

We like our bike.
It is made for three.
Our Mike
sits up in back,
you see.

We like our Mike
and this is why:
Mike does all the work
when the hills get high.

Hello there, Ned.
How do you do?
Tell me, tell me
What is new?
How are things
in your little bed?
What is new?
Please tell me, Ned.

I do not like
this bed at all.
A lot of things
have come to call.
A cow, a dog, cat, a mouse.
Oh! What a bed! Oh! What a house!

Oh, dear! Oh, dear!
I can not hear.
Will you please
come over near?
Will you please look in my ear?
There must be something there, I fear.

Say, look!
A bird was in your ear.
But he is out. So have no fear.
Again your ear can hear, my dear.
There is more but it’s super long. Go buy it–it will make you smile! 🙂
