The Lyrics

This one is my third parody, and it is dedicated to all of the fishermen that go out there at the crack of dawn to look for the big one.
Inside the fishing boat
Those fish will make you gloat and gloat
You change the bait, you wait
Four at morning driving through the weeds and
In and out the river

The bait it really squirms
As do all those slimy worms
You change the bait, you wait
Four at morning driving through the weeds and
In and out the river

In and around the lake
Crappie jump out of the reeds, and they
Eat there
I'm up the river fishing well how bout
You
All the summers we've been here we've
Caught a Few
Up at four to catch the fish, the big fish the small fish
Too

I won't forget the day
When that big bass he got away
No hook line and sinker
Four at morning driving in the weeds and
Even in the River

In and around the lake
Crappie jump out of the reeds, and they
Eat there
I'm up the river fishing well how bout
You
All the summers we've been here we've
Caught a Few
Up at four to catch the fish, the big fish the small fish
Too

Along the river banks the boat is trolling all
Through the land
Catching the big old fish all of us see
The fish we will land
The fun that fishing brings, when that big reel
Spins in our hand
Get closer hold the line this fish will be the
Best in the land
We stand to lose this catch this fish could just slip
Right through your hand
For oh this fish we fear I know
It won't come for a million years

Inside the fishing boat
The fish will make you gloat and gloat
Inside the fishing boat
The fish will make you gloat and gloat

In and around the lake
Crappie jump out of the reeds, and they
Eat there
Up at four to catch the fish, the big fish the small fish

Inside the fishing boat
Those fish will make you gloat and gloat
You change the bait, you wait
Four at morning driving through the weeds and
In and out the river

In and around the lake
Crappie jump out of the reeds, and they
Eat there
I'm up the river fishing well how bout
You
All the summers we've been here we've
Caught a Few
Up at four to catch the fish, the big fish the small fish
Too

5-5-5, good job on a tough and weird song, "Roundabout". And I ought to know...awhile back, I posted a parody of "Roundabout" called "Floundershout", which was also about a fishing trip....

I agree--this is a tough one. Nice job.

I remember that day well. I wanted to be the first here to do this song and Johnny beat me by a day. I knew I had to either hate him or love him. (Guess which) Anyway, this is an excellent entry. Every Yes fan should know that Chris Squire's nickname is "The Fish"

Yeah, the original was hard to parody off of. Also, by the way, does anyone know what the original song is about? I'm curious.
Johnny D - October 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I read somewhere that at least part of it comes from "Yes" traveling either to or from a concert tour, going by a lake and mountains, thinking that it's only 24 hours before they'll be home to see their loved ones, etc. Or, maybe "24 before my love" refers to LSD, whose chemical name is "d-LSD-25". Who knows...
