Fishy

The catch with attempting to do a post every single day for the entire month of November is that the quality of said blog posts can really suffer. I mean, what happens if I have absolutely zero to say about anything and yet attempt it anyway because of BloMe (NaBloPoMo)?

What happens is that I declare Music Mondays as an emergency post rescue package bail out plan. Some Mondays I might need it. Some Mondays I won't.

On with the fun... Surely some of you are familiar with the Fish Heads Song, no? I'm betting that even if you know it, it's been awhile, and since it's Monday, you might need some joy. I'm here for you, my buttercupids. If you haven't heard this song you've totally been cheated by life, but there is still time if you act now! I first heard the song when I was a troubled youth seeing an even more troubled youth, R. Appropriately enough, R introduced me to both this song and to the Dr. Demento show (amazingly still on the radio, who knew?), from whence even more silly songs became permanent parts of my addled mind.

This song has inspired actions like sending bags of dried fish mixed with peanuts to my dad from Japan just to screw with him (for the record, such a bag of snacks is not at all an uncommon sight in the snack section of the store in Japan). I'm guessing I did a follow up call to my dad to sing this song because secretly I think he likes it even if he claims not to like fish heads. Gawd, I hope I did call him and sing this. It would have been very worth whatever the cost of the phone bill. I'm tempted to give out his phone number to let all y'all call to sing this to him. He's finally retired; he has time to listen. Good thing I practice restraints, er, restraint, eh?

If you simply cannot listen at work, just the lyrics are about 25% of the fun, but you owe it to yourself to listen later. Enjoy. BloMe.



Fish Heads
Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

In the morning, laughing happy fish heads
In the evening, floating in the soup

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won't answer, they cant talk

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

I took a fish head out to see a movie,
Didn't have to pay to get it in

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

They can't play baseball, they don't wear sweaters
They're not good dancers, they don't play drums

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Rolly Polly fish heads are never seen drinking cappuccino in
Italian restaurants with Oriental women.
Yeeaahh

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Yum!

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yumm!

Fish heads, fish heads, rolly polly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads, eat them up
Yummmm!

Yeeaahh

  3. omg omg omg Where the hell did that come from? I had never heard that before. I think I may actually have been able to live my life quite nicely without ever having to hear it. Having heard it, now, I realize I have been deprived all of my life and now everything is spoiled.
