The Lyrics

We ride the swells this crew—
out in the brine.
A lot o’ fishing’s what we do…
throw our lines in,
but there’s whinin’
from those who must brandish
the chum—sling it out
to attract the damn fish…
I mean grand fish, not little horned pout.

I gotta smell this goo;
it don’t smell fine,
not fine!

Had to do
what the crew
said to do.
But I threw several pounds
at the captain’s hair—
which got quite smelly—
and then dripped down
his beard, which gelled with goo.
Blew goo’d dude’s mind.

Outstanding stuff! Screaming Jay one of my fav performers and "spell" is a super song! John Barry's parody nails it down!
