The Lyrics

Some people think a gift..should have to be clothes
A brand new watch..or some socks for your toes
Socks for your toes, or nice cell phones
But my gift last year..really blessed my bones..

It's a singin' bass..up here on the wall
Another year older, looks great in the hall
Wife bought it for Christmas..wigglin' tail it has
I'll never part..with my great singin' bass..

Put a batt'ry in it..push the switch on in line
The mouth starts to pucker..and the vocal is fine
I love my singin' bass..not caught on a pole
Sings a Christmas song..well, a-bless my sole

It's my singin' bass..right up on the wall
It's there until New Years..just hope it don't fall
"The night before Christmas"..he croons with fish class
I'll never part..with my great singin' bass..

I'll be up Christmas mornin'..way before all the kids
Cookin' up breakfast..with eggs on the grids
I'll be flippin' those flapjacks..add a touch a' good wine
Have my bass fish rockin' I dance and shine

You can hear me hummin'..lookin' satisfied
'Long with Big Mouth Billy..his mouth open wide
Tail just a flyin'..a voice kinda' shrill
Got me tappin' my fingers..on the window sill..

It's my singin' bass..right here on the wall
Another year older, looks great in the hall
Was a Christmas present..wigglin' tail it has
I'll never part..with my great singin' bass..

I'll never part..with my great singin' bass..
