The Lyrics

This for anyone who's ever worked in a fish market, or hates the smell of rotten fish.
Old, smelly
Draws flies to me
Sorry, baby
I must lose what I see
Green Herrings
I remember
The smelly, rancid, smell
I remember
Disgust on your face
I don't mind

Eyes, staring
Fish has no smile
Sorry, baby
You're so smelly like a child

Green Herrings
I remember
The way you always smelled
I remember
The look in it's eye
I don't mind
