Hello, I'm Louise.
Tonight we're going deep down into the sea for our bedtime story.
I hope you are wearing waterproof pyjamas!
The story is called The Fish Who Could Wish and it is by John Bush.
In the deep blue sea, in the deep of the blue,
swam a fish who could wish and each wish would come true.
Oh, the fun that he had, oh, the things he would do,
just wishing away in the deep water blue.
He wished for a castle,
he wished for a car.
He wished for a horse and a Spanish guitar.
And he rode through the ocean singing O Sole Mio,
backed by a group called The Hermit Crab Trio.
Once when he wished he could go out and ski,
it snowed for a week under the sea.
He wished he could fly and to his delight
flew twice round the world in exactly one night.
If sharks came hunting for a nice fishy treat, he'd quickly just
wish he was too small to eat.
And to teach sharks a lesson, do you know what he'd wish?
That he was a shark and the shark was a fish.
He would wish himself square or round as a biscuit.
name it, he wished it!
He wished for fine suits and handsome silk ties.
But the one thing he never wished was to be wise.
One day, just for fun, that silly old fish
wished the silliest, silliest wish he could wish.
That silly old fish wished he could be
just like the other fish there in the sea.
But wishing was something other fish could not do,
so that was his very last wish that came true.
That story was called The Fish Who Could Wish.
What a silly fish. What a shame!
What would you have wished for if you were the fish?
Oh, that's a good one.
I think I would wish for a cosy blanket and my favourite teddy.
How lovely. Oh, yes, and a good night's sleep. Night-night.
I'll see you again soon for another bedtime story.
