The Lyrics

Hey, fish, I betcha there's someone out to catchya
He's winding line and baiting hook;
Won't buy seafood at a grocery store.
Today, he's out for Ahi or, failing that, Albacore.

Gaff, gaff, gaff, the call him the gaffer.
Gaff, gaff, gaff, it's fish he's after.

Hauls a Snapper in to the boat and starts gaffin',
He slays; it bleeds to the companionway, and then he is through.
Sets another line; he wants to get some Sockeye, too.

Gaff, gaff, gaff, the call him the gaffer.
Gaff, gaff, gaff, it's fish he's after.

Now he's got a nephew, a young guy named Jeff, who
Has just found a place working in the film industry.
He got the job he wanted: he's the head of electricity.

Zap, zap, lands a job as a gaffer.
Zap, zap, zap, of voltage he's master.
