A mackerel was caught in my net
I thought of a seafood croquette
of my boat as he yelled "Wanna Bet?"
If seafood's your thing, come and see
of what has done wonders for me
not a thing from a creel:
A lentil-based fish recipe!
"The whalers have captured my Dad!
They grabbed him, you see
as there were no whales to be had!
A dugong remarked to a trout:
"So what was that swordfish about?
and a pointy and dangerous snout!"
A tuna was pulled in my boat
One day while at sea and afloat
He replied: "Well, I wish
You would get this big hook from my throat!"
This fishing is really uncool
the way they hang out in a school
I know what they're taught:
and they label us fishermen cruel!
With ideas of bouillabaisse
I mashed up some tuna and plaice
it squirted black ink in my face!
As I put a worm on my hook
it gave me a whimsical look
to purchase a chicken to cook!
My lure was the best you can buy
I flicked back my rod and let fly
I sat down and had a good cry!
so lit fifty candles at mass
the priest blessed my rod
(the archbishop said it was crass).
'Twas early, the sun glowing gold
the water was bitter and cold
that fishing is fun...so I'm told!
One thing about fishing I hate
is not all the boredom and wait
cause the biggest thing hooked was your bait!
A halibut said to his Mum:
"That fisherman thinks that I'm dumb
I've only one thing to say: YUM!"
As Africa went through a famine
the people went out to catch salmon
Look after yourself, cause I'm scrammin'!"
