The Lyrics

I originally wrote this a few years back for a now defunct humor forum.
And you may find yourself
Swimming at the bottom of the ocean
And you may find yourself
Caught by human hands
And you may find yourself
In a vat of smelly lye
And you may ask yourself
How did I get here

Letting the days go by
In the lye I will drown
Letting the days go by
And now I'm Norway bound
Into the blue again
After the Lutefisk is ate it's gone
Once in a Lutefisk
There is Lye all around

And you may ask yourself
How can I eat this
And you may say to yourself
What the hell was I thinking
And you may say to yourself
Lye shouldn't be ingested
And you may tell yourself
Can this be preserved until maybe next year

Letting the days go by
In the lye I will drown
Letting the days go by
And now I'm Norway bound
Into the blue again
After the Lutefisk is ate it's gone
Once in a Lutefisk
There is Lye all around

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was

Water dissolving
And Lye removing
There is Lutefisk
Served in Norway at Christmas
Serve it in pickle juice it's pickled herring
Serve it untainted it's just plain cod

Letting the days go by
In the lye I will drown
Letting the days go by
And now I'm Norway bound
Into the blue again
After the Lutefisk is ate it's gone
Once in a Lutefisk
There is Lye all around

Letting the days go by
In the lye I will drown
Letting the days go by
And now I'm Norway bound
Into the blue again
After the Lutefisk is ate it's gone
Once in a Lutefisk
There is Lye all around

And you may ask yourself
So this is what the fuss is all about
And you may ask yourself
Does it say Lutefisk on the label
And you may ask yourself
Does it smell or does it smell
And you may say to yourself
MY GOD WHAT HAVE I ATE

Letting the days go by
In the lye I will drown
Letting the days go by
And now I'm Norway bound
Into the blue again
After the Lutefisk is ate it's gone
Once in a Lutefisk
There is Lye all around

Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was
