The Lyrics

Ketamine is a drug that induces a state referred to as "dissociative anesthesia"; has a wide range of effects in humans, including analgesia, anesthesia, and hallucinations. 2X is a size of fishing line.
Hey, they're comin' in. (to-o-ons)
Watch out for that fin! (shu-u-un)
Time to get that food on. (yu-u-um)
We filch yellowtail from the bight.

Ketch off Ketchikan,
Cast off. . .catch if can,
Catch off Ketchikan,
Ketch off Ketchikan.

Watch out for my thumb! (thu-u-umb)
That slice-off was dumb! (du-u-umb)
Now I'm getting angry! (bu-u-ummed)
Off if fell, so trawl in the bight.

Gaffe off Ketchikan,
Gaffed off Ketchikan,
Gaffed in ketch--cleft hand,
Cast off--catch it, man!

Snagged! It's not bait, man. (chu-u-um)
Lash it on, mate man. (thu-u-umb)
Tied with number 2 on. (plu-u-umb)
I then yell: "It's hurting alright!"

Gash was sanguine, man,
Splashed like ketchup, man,
Gab, kvetch, a mean man:
"Grab ketamine, man!"
