Music & lyrics ©1975, 2103 by Robert Davidson

Dad: First you take out the rod and you put on the reel
Put the bait on the hook for the fishie’s meal
Then you cast out to sea for your fishy steal
Thanks to “Fish Funk”, you’ve got Fish Appeal.

Dad & Son: And now you sit there and wait for the fish
Think of the fish in a dish
Son: with lemon!
Dad & Son: Maybe trout or halibut, rainbow grilled and buttered up
Son: I hope I don’t catch a cold .

Dad & Son:
We’ve been here for two weeks and we haven’t caught any
Fish: Boy that sure was fast
Dad: All I ask for is one now, that isn’t too many
Fish: It’s one too many, ooo
Dad & Son: Maybe more Fish Funk is necessary
Fish: We love Fish Funk ooo
Dad & Son: Spraying Fish Funk makes those fishes so merry
Fish” Merry fish!! ;)

Dad & Son: And now you sit there and wait for the fish
Think of the fish in a dish
Son: with lemon!
Dad & Son: Maybe trout or halibut, rainbow grilled and buttered up
Son: What are those things over there??

Madeline Fish: How you do, my name’s Madeline
I’m a fish from the sea
I came here to give myself in
And I brought my school of fishy friends

(She fish dances)

Dad & Son:
Fish is Man's Best Friend Contrary to Rumor
Fishes: A fish story rumor
Dad & Son: Take a Fish Out to lunch get to know ‘em much sooner
Fishes: We’d like to know you
All: Get a bottle of win and a bowlful of tuna
Fishes: Only white wine, please
All: You’ll be closer to fish, a whole lot sooner
Fishes: Much sooner

All: And now you sit there and wait for the fish
Think of the fish in a dish
With lemon!
Maybe trout or halibut, rainbow grilled and buttered up
Son: Fishes are Man’s Best Friend.

Madeline: A fishes life can be glamorous
When we’re out of the sea
Your table manners don’t bother us
But keep in mind we’re strictly white wine, please!

We’re strictly white wine
We’re strictly white wine
We’re strictly white wine, please!
