The Lyrics

I'd like to blame this on Michael Pacholek, but I really shouldn't...
You can fry a bass in oil and sassafras
You can eat it raw, right in your boat
You can boil a squid, or steam it with a lid
You can catch your limit in a moat

You can work your charms at the catfish farm
Baiting up those worms is quite a chore
Or you can ride a ship and hook some tuna lips
you won't be seeing "Charlie" anymore

But don't smell my carp
My Shake-n-Bakin' carp
It didn't cook the way I planned
And if you taste my carp
My Shake-n-bakin' carp
You'd best start runnin' for the can

You can shout it out, you caught a rainbow trout
You can say you ate some salmon eggs
Or tell your brother Joe the fishin's really slow
Mosquitoes nearly chewed up both your legs

Or tell your brother Bill you caught some nice blue gill
Tell him that you caught a trout that's brown
or go out fishin' drunk, get wasted as a skunk
Fall right over in the lake and drown

But don't smell my carp
My Shake-n-Bakin' carp
It didn't cook the way I planned
And if you taste my carp
My Shake-n-Bakin' carp
you might go runnin' for the can

(Repeat Chorus)

You don't have to tell anybody what it is. Try Shake 'n' Bake with cat food.

Great OS to use to send up Shake'n'Bake Royce - and I'm impressed how much of the full pescatorial spectrum you managed to include - 555

I liked the "Charlie" reference and the Dr. Suess quality to the parody. Well done, Royce.

This Korean student at the house I lived in back in the late 1970's in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood caught a carp in the Charles River and brought it back to the house to cook ... this was back in the days of, you know, "I love that dirty water --- ohhh Boston, you're my home!" ... I think folks eventually convinced him NOT to eat it ...
