    Three Little Fishes

    The lyrics for the song were written by Josephine Carringer and Bernice Idins and the music was by Saxie Dowell. Or so the Wikipedia story goes. The real story is that Dowell, a sax player in Hal Kemp’s orchestra, "borrowed” the song from three University of Tennessee sorority sisters, Carringer, Idins and Mary Elizabeth Bomar. He had met the three while visiting and performing in Knoxville in February 1939, where they sang their "Fish Song" for him. In March of that year, Kemp and the orchestra recorded “Three Little Fishies” on the Victor label with a trio of singers called The Smoothies.

    Covered (like every other popular hit) by the Andrews Sisters:

    Stevie Ray Vaughan - Look at Little Sister
