The Lyrics

Just fishing for ideas
Why can't you just let me swim away?
Just let me go into this lake
When I flop here gasping every breath on land, oooh
You're the poley one who just now caught me with gall

Why can't you just leave this bay to me?
It's all I can do to swim and eat
Now we've shared the struggle and the bait
You've even had six beers
You've now showed your son, who will not eat me at all

So take the hook from me now
And see my sad fishy face
And there's this big hole in my upper lip
Now my good looks are erased
Ow, take that hook from me now
Now I'm callin' Nancy Grace
And when you suffer like me, against all rods
I swear I'm sellin' this place

I wish I could just make you throw me back
Throw me back, I'm a small fry
There's not much here to be feedin' you
Be a real PETA guy
Now you've had some fun, I think I hear nature call

So take the hook from me now
And see my sad fishy face
And there's this big hole in my upper lip
Now my good looks are erased
Ow, take that hook from me now
Now I'm callin' Nancy Grace
And when you suffer like me, against all rods
I swear I'm sellin' this place

Take that big hook from me now
You bought a license, right?
And you throwin' back in me, I'm against all rods
It's the dance I gotta fake

Take the hook from me now

What a very very funny parody! I liked it very much! Sorry I couldn't give you full marks as I thought the pacing was very very slightly off in some places, but otherwise well done.

Lure-id. You seem to have an Invisible Trout.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I give this 5's in all three catagoies.

Catch of the Day. Singing fish...hmm, a recording of this combined with those talking wall-mount fish would be a great product.

I found this by clicking on the 'random' button. It had me hooked but I found it a tad fishy! Not being an angler-phile, I take the singer's side with this one. Good stuff Rick.
