The Lyrics

If you suddenly began transmorphalising in a distinctly piscine manner, how would you react? This is this guy's reaction. Enjoy!
Gotta say, I don't feel all that great
Normally a nice swim helps me relax
But the lake I chose was kinda crap
Filled with atomic waste, not good for me
Might have caught something from that goo
Like the ooze from TMNT
Do you see something off 'bout me?
There's something weird on my neck?

I'm growing gills, that can't be good for me
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
This is weird, I'm growing gills
Don't like these gills, damn radioactivity
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
Can't believe I'm growing gills

I know that they aren't just scars
They're laid out too symmetric'lly
Far more mutations in store
Look, my skin's getting all scaly
My ears are becoming fin flaps
And I'm gaining finger webbing
Now there's a use for my pool
Still worried 'bout one thing

Now I have gills, am I able to breathe?
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
Above ground now I have gills
With these new gills, will I be stuck under the sea?
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
Not looking forward to gills

The truth is...I'm kinda scared, man (ah-ah)
I can't be a sea-dweller dude (ah-ah-ah-ah)
My stuff's all above ground, wait a mo'
If I had to live in a pool
How come choking's not in the way
Of me singing this song, all right
I've got options, yay!

Turns out these gills won't be that bad for me
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
Guess I'm amphibious, brill'
Come on, you gills, I've got deep-sea places to be
Fishy fishy, fishy fishy
Take advantage of these gills
I'll love these gills
They'll bring so much thrills (fishy fishy, fishy fishy)
Not human? Deal with that I will
In time, for now I'm still (fishy fishy, fishy fishy)
Waiting for my brand new gills

I'd say that this'd be my reaction as well, but then again it relies on the idea that I'd actually go swimming, let alone go swimming in some random lake filled with barrels of mysterious ooze, so no fish-mutant-ing up for me.

I'd love to have gills. I have done competitive swimming in my youth, and I love the sea, lakes and rivers.
