Oh! Beautiful Fishy ©

by George Wotherspoon
Perth, Scotland
2002

Oh! Beautiful fishy I won at the fare
Your skin is so golden
Your bogly eyes stare.

You've got your own bag
And fresh water too
A far cry frae ma last one
That's flushed doon the loo.

A've bought ye some flakies
For yer dinner and tea.
I'll put ye in a wee bowl
Next tae ma settee.

The bus won't be long now
Just a few stops tae go.
I'll call roond the family
And put ye on show.

Oh! Sweet little fishy
You're looking so tired.
You're swimming all sideways!
Damn! Fishy expired!
