The Lyrics

I can't stop this reeling on the deep blue sea.
Twirlin' round, the line's unspooling, dizzyingly.
Hard to hold pole when a Marlin fights;
Let the line troll till a big one bites.

I've hooked one; I'm reeling;
My line is squealing; it's no landlubber, me.

Fish can make your hands weak as they play on that line.
Percodan! I'm hurting! Let me sup on anodyne.
My back's a kyphotic curl, and I sure need a cure;
Still I get piscine kicks, tricking with a lure.

They're a good lunch when they are deboned;
When you cut, ascertain knife is honed.

I've hooked one; I'm reeling
And I'm really feeling that lozenge lullin' me.


There's a good lurch, and I am "dethroned";
Forgot safety cinch 'cause I was stoned.

Please hook me, I'm keeling
And I think I'm feeling Marlin lungin' at me.

Nice fish tail! (For the sake of your protagonist, hopefully it was only Marlin Perkins lunging for him at the end...)

Thanks, TJC, Alvin. Welcome back, TJC. Fine work from you two, as usual. The site isn't registering votes for me. . .have tried on two computers. You're obviously able to vote. Wonder if anyone else is having this problem?
