Today I admit it, I make up songs about my fish. My most recent is “Counting Shrimp” The lyrics are a parody of this canon I sing in chorus:

Alto: One bottle pop, Two bottle pop, Three bottle pop, Four bottle pop, Five bottle pop, Six bottle pop, seven bottle pop, eight
Mezzo-soprano: Dont throw your trash in my backyard, my backyard, my backyard, don’t throw your trash in my backyard, my backyards full.
Soprano: Fish and chips and vinegar, vinegar, vinegar, fish and chips and vinegar, pepper pepper pepper salt.

Here my parody (I sing while counting how many shrimps I can see)
One shrimpy shrimp, Two shrimpy shrimp, three shrimpy shrimp, four shrimpy shrimp, five shrimpy shrimp, six shrimpy shrimp, seven shrimpy shrimpy shrimpies

Don’t put your shrimp in my shrimp tank, my shrimp tank, my shrimp tank, don’t put your shrimp in my shrimp tank, my shrimp tanks full.

Plants, algae and biofilm, biofilm, biofilm, plants, algae and biofilm, yummy yummy shrimp food.

I can’t believe I’m about to post that I sing to my shrimp but here we go.

Are you kidding? I have about six songs that I made up just for my dog. He always perks up when I sing the treat song. He is so spoiled that just saying the word "where" (the 1st word of the treat song) will get him to jump up from a dead sleep and run to wherever I currently am.

I'm guessing you sing this to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb."

The filter in the tank goes glug glug, bleh
Stop making waste

The heater in the tank goes don’t touch me
Don’t touch me, don’t touch me
The heater in the tank goes don’t touch me
Or I’ll burn your hand

The plants in the tank go look at me
Look at me, look at me
The plants in the tank go look at me
I’m really green

The gravel in the tank goes roots stop please
Roots stop please, roots stop please
The gravel in the tank goes roots stop please, I don’t need your hugs

I could do this all day :D

I don't sing, but I play music for my birds. To my fish though, it's a bit quiet LOL.

My one cat Hiro seems to hate it when I sing, so I do it to annoy him. He came after me once. The other cat Kuromi loves it, she hears me sing or whistle, she'll come running and headbutt me for attention and pets. My oldest cat just gives me this "your annoying" look and then ignores me.

I don't make up songs though, I just sing/mimic what I hear coming through my headphones.

I had a Billie Bass that hung on the wall, but I never sang to my fish myself. They didn't seem to care for Billie's song, either.
