Fish Heads

At lunch today (sushi) with Amy and my two nephews, the song “Fish Heads” suddenly inserted itself in my head.  No one at the table remembered it, but the waitress did and we struggled through the chorus together.  I whipped out my trusty T-Mobile Sidekick and googled “Fish Head Song.”  Voila – lyrics:

Chorus
Fish heads fish heads
Roly poly fish heads
Fish heads fish heads
Eat them up
Yum
(Repeat Chorus)
In the morning laughing happy fish heads
In the evening floating in the soup
(Chorus)
Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won’t answer they can’t talk
(Chorus)
I took a fish head out to see a movie
Didn’t have to pay to get it in
(Chorus)
They can’t play baseball they don’t wear sweaters
They’re not good dancers they don’t play drums
(Chorus)
Roly poly fish heads are never seen
Drinking cappuccino in Italian restaurants
with Oriental women
Yeah.
(Chorus)
(Repeat Chorus 2X)
(Repeat Chorus a capella)
Yeah

This was from Barnes & Barnes’ debut album (yeah – huge success those Barnes & Barnes guys).  Dr. Demento (remember him all you 40 year olds – well – he’s still around) claims it was the all time most requested song on his show.  Yum.  Yeah.

Sorry for the multiple posts – I was trying a new posting editor and it was an unhappy experience.
