The Lyrics

He goes out a-fishin' for grub for the fryin' pan (2x)
Makes a lot of sense, 'cause he's a fisher man.

He takes hake, haddock, and sole (4x)
He gets it in the boat and throws it down in the hold.

To keep his catch real fresh, he puts it on ice (2x)
The problem is, it's subject to market price.

For his hake, haddock, and sole (4x)
He settles upon a price, and then it is sold.

Well now he's got his catch on sale in a seafood store (2x)
Some guy comes in, but he don't want fish; he seeks boar.

There's just hake, haddock, and sole (4x)
So they throw the pork man right out into the cold.

If he got into whaling, he'd say, "Thar she blow!" (2x)
But he decides that he'll stick with what he knows.

And that's hake, haddock, and sole (4x)
So he tells the mate, "Go and get those fishin' poles."

Hake, haddock, and sole!
