The Lyrics

youtube

(Just to clarify, this parody totally sympathizes with people who have a close relationship to their pets, because I'm one of them. Although I prefer cats and dogs myself.)
Goodbye
Poor Clyde
I cried
When my goldfish died

Goodbye
Poor Clyde
I cried
When my goldfish died

Woke up in the mornin', to feed my little chum
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died
When I found him floatin', my extremities went numb
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died

And would you try
To begin to sympathize
Or would you minimize
That my goldfish died

And would you try
To begin to sympathize
Or would you minimize
That my goldfish died

Tried to give him CPR, but he would not respond
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died
Fishy, I wish I never took you from your spawning pond
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died

And would you try
Understanding why I cried
Or would you just deride
That my goldfish died

And would you try
Understanding why I cried
Or would you just deride
That my goldfish died

(guitar solo)

While I plan his funeral, you watch "Price Is Right"
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died

And did you try
Helping me to eulogize
And did you say goodbye
To my goldfish Clyde

And did you try
Helping me to eulogize
And did you say goodbye
To my goldfish Clyde

To my goldfish Clyde (x 4)
(drums)
Clyde Clyde Clyde, my goldfish died (x 5)
Yeah, my goldfish died (x 4)

Someone giving a goldfish CPR paints a very funny scene....I never tried goldfish, but I love Tilapia and whitefish

I like codfish, catfish, orange roughey, and tuna steaks.

Here, let me fish out $5.55 for a replacement! Btw, I love bottom-dweller catfish as well as Icelandic Cod ;-D

Thanks, but I'll put that money toward a new cat. I've been lonesome ever since my little Kitteny had to be put to sleep last month.

Porfle- so sorry to hear about your kitty :( My last cat I had I gave to my neighbor b/c he lost his wife and was alone. My cat took a liking to him and was always in his yard anyway, so I let him have her. She will be 17 years old in May and is still a huntress. He renamed her "Shadow" b/c she follows him around like his shadow. When she was mine her name was Gussam (an unusual name that has a funny story behind it)! So... I understand. My pet rats only live 2-3 years and they eat human food so they die very big! My vet was appalled that I teach them to drink soda and eat fast food! Yet they live the same as a normal rat eating gerbil food and drinking Vitawater! With a short lifespan might as well let them be happy :)

Thanks, it was rough losing Kitteny just a couple of months after losing my dog Buddy. First time I've been without an animal companion in over thirty years. Hey, I had a cat named Leia who lived to be 17, too. The only rats I have are the uninvited kind.
