The Lyrics

Angler in the night entangling branches
Waiting for a bite
Where were the catfish he’d been hearing of?
From all his friends he knew

Suddenly his eyes lit up like saucers
UFO in flight - it was a monster
Something from the craft
Told him, “We must probe you!”

Creatures from deep space, two ghoulish midgets
Had our angler in their sights
Ready for capture
When he said his last farewell
Little could he tell
Pain was just a glove away
A cold ass snaking shove away… Now -

Ev’ry time it’s dark he counts his blessings
Looney as a lark, he’s been in session
Don’t turn out the lights
On Spangler when it’s night

He went from a fishing trip
To ass invading flying ship -

Ever since that night he sleeps in terror
Fearful of what might? …in fear forever
Do you feel his fright?
You anglers in the night

Do dody doby do
do doo de la
da da da da ya
