The Lyrics

The pallid sturgeon is a large fish of the missouri (big muddy) river watershed. I write songs about science, and this seemed like an appropriate subject, without taking sides in re the controversy surrounding the management of the river for the survival of the sturgeon (and other fish and wildlife).
Like a (pallid) sturgeon

I finally made it through fish school.
Somehow I made it throu-ou-ou-ou-ough.
But I'm just a fry, and I still make a mistake or two-oo-oo.
I was lost, almost squashed
In the big muddy’s water.
Now I'm trying to avoid,
Yeah, I'm trying to avoid a big river otter.

hey! like a sturgeon
spawning for the very first time.
like a stur-ur-ur-urgeon.
making caviar is my line.

I've got a long projecting snout,
An asymmetric tail,
Cartilaginous skeleton,
And bony plates for scales.
I've got a dream of a stream
Where I can clean out a place to spawn.
And I'll spew my insides out,
Yeah, I'll spew my insides out until my eggs are all gone.

hey! like a sturgeon
spawning for the very first time.
like a stur-ur-ur-urgeon,
i've got caviar on my mind.
oh, oh, oh, oh . . . .

Without the sturgeon there would be no "fishberry jam".

It looks incomplete; I don't think you parodied the whole song. But the concept is great, I gotta give you credit for that.
