The Lyrics

Sturgeon is the roe he'll prize,
The only eggs for he,
So a splurgin' spree.

Gone to filch finned fish,
Gone to filch big fish.

He woke up this mornin' and to his bank did go
Because goin' on a sturgeon spree
Requires a lot of dough.
And to the seaway now after scourgin' credit line,
He boards the boat; those sailors and he will haul a good line.

He is a
Gone to fish, fish, fish
Gone to gaffe big fish
Gawks for big fishes
Gaffe those big fishes
Surf's in
Gut those big fishes
Glom, filch fish riches
Surf fins
Gone, more big fishes

Sturgeon--wrest that roe to brine,
That roe is way salty,
Sturgeon splurgin' spree--
Gone to filch finned fish,
Gone to filch big fish.

From the early mornin' to the middle of the night,
Gotta haul them sturgeon up; man, they can fight!
They drop the sturgeon down to the hold's space
Then do the sturgeon stab to raze roe that he'll praise.

Then he is slurpin'
Vodka, delicious
To Rudolf list'nin'
Laws for big fishes
Law again's missed him
Of loaves and fishes
Smirkin'. . .
Car's Darwin'd; no fish
Viscera from fish

Sturgeon is the roe he'll taste,
The only eggs for he
On Caspian Sea.
Gone to filch finned fish,
Gone to filch big fish.

Now the dawn is breaking, and they really gotta go--
They could be doing twenty years for poaching of roe.
Yeah, the sturgeon are declinin' because they're under attack;
That won't stop this Beluga burglar, board-certified quack.

The water's surface
Froths and goes swish, swish
Naw, it's big fish, fish
Waters of big fish
Waters of big fish
Boat's hold of big fish
Up the eggs of fish
To sell filched riches
Of filched fish riches

"Surgeon" is a schmoe with knife.
Sturgeon-roe surgery's
His only operation successfully.

Got much malpractice,
Gone to snatch gaffed fish.

Surfing makes you think of fishing. Ever have a hamburger with caviar?

Actually, Dylan, this is a different song, called, simply, "Surfin." Thanks, Alvin, 2Eagle.
