12 Days, Version 2

Mr Black challenged us to take out the rest of the regular things in the song. We made them all sea creatures. We hope you enjoy. 


On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me 
Twelve whales a spouting, 
Eleven sharks a-biting, 
Ten dolphins a-leaping, 
Nine lobsters clawing, 
Eight swordfish roaming, 
Seven salmons a-swimming, 
Six goldfish spawning, 
Five northern pike, 
Four largemouth bass, 
Three brown trout, 
Two yellow perch, 
And a minnow in a little bowl.

So our challenge is, can you do the 12 days with another set of creatures? No birds or people stuff.

Interesting challenge. Just might try it, even though we are about the most uncreative kitties on the face of the earth....

Rodentia Version

On the twelfth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Twelve mousies twitching
Eleven voles a-sniffing
Ten rats a-running
Nine chipmunks chewing
Eight squirrels a-scrambling
Seven shrews a-sneezing
Six gerbils jumping
Five guinea pigs
Four capybaras
Three handsome hamsters
Two tiny muskrats
And a porcupine in a spruce tree

XOXOXO
