The Lyrics

Freshet, I’m in freshet,
and my parts scream “cold!” yet my heat starts to peak.
Not for bream I pine, of harpoonness I speak.
splendid trout to gather, lancing creek to creek.

Fresh fish, I love fresh fish—
bill of fare has it at least five times a week.
I will banish what guys vanquish: game they seek.
Splendid ’pout to gather, lancing creek to creek.

Oh, I love those tines that rout ’em
and breach ’em till they leak,
’cause there’s nothing that thrills me as much
as lancing creek to creek.

Oh, I love to go out fishing—
stick slick finned skin silver-sleek.
Yes, there’s nothing I enjoy as much
as lancing creek to creek.

Come on a lancing spree:
there’s not much harm we can do;
I’ll arm you with two
barbed spars to ram through. . .

the fresh fish. . .pikin’ flesh sprit?!
Nuts! my parts feel polled/poled, and I start getting weak,
’cause it seems you’ve tined the shaft of my physique.
It’s not trout you’ve gaffed; your lancing's. . .
’pout’s not gaffed; your lancing's. . .
Ouch! a gaffe: your lancing’s wreaked my teak!

The lapses in pacing are criminal. Yet you are a word master. Double yet, you are too clever by a half. No score.

Yes, please stop rating Mr. Barry on the basis of his name and the use of the king's olde English in limerick form. He's not that special in this regard as there have been thousands of such parody -making funsters in Playboy magazine for decades. And, his pacing is off as well.
