The Lyrics

I realize something smells fishy about this deal? And it might make you crabby. But I wrote it for you, to make you feel swimmingly refreshed.
Squod Pro Quo
Helped my floundering biz stay afloat
While I shelled out clams for my new boat
Oh there's net gains with...
Squid Pro Quo

Is how I learn Latin sea
Sounds a little fishy I agree
But squid pro quo helps

When I'm gutting fish
It's so delish to banter so
I need helps to loin
So I'm coining...
Squid Pro Quo

Squid Pro Quo
Can help my old mussels raise some dough
I maybe a shark to barter so
But I'll sink my teeth in...
Squid Pro Quo

With some cod fillet
I can pay for debts I owe
I'll take shrimp in trade
Deals are made with...
Squid Pro Quo

Squid Quo Pro
Sounds like it sprang H. Weinstein's row
It's not who you know - It's who you blow
Oh, he'll whip out his squid pro quo
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm

Nothing captures the romance of being a fisherman living at the bottom of the employment food chain like a parody of a Beatles love song. I've always believed that

The mad punster strikes! Well done, Lionel, I started off skimming over this but it left me all at sea, that was, until I got my hooks into it.
