    "Who'll have a fishy
    On a little dishy?
    Who will have a fishy
    When the boat comes..."

    And then he says
    "With our glasses both raised in a toast
    Let's sing for those in peril on the sea
    Who cater ceaselessly
    To thy every wish
    With every fish
    As fresh as fish can be
    You see, I'm into my oysters
    My king prawns and caviar
    No matter how far away they are
    I'll be there!"

    And then she says,
    "Now with our glasses both raised in this toast
    Let's sing for those in peril on the sea
    Who labour tirelessly
    In their tiny boats
    Off John O' Groats
    Their socks soaked for me
    You see, I do like my lobster
    My hake, skate and rainbow trout
    And if there's a fishy smell about
    I'll be there! And then
    And then we'll sing for those in peril on the sea...

    Don't be frightened
    Don't be scared
    Chop off their heads
    And little legs
    Then peel away the shell
    And open up your senses to the smell
    The sound and colour
    Touch and taste

    Of crab, cod, clams and kippers
    Scampi, squid, sole, shark and scallop
    Winkles, whelks, whale and whiting
    Seaweed, swordfish, sardines and sea urchin

    Haddock, halibut, herrings and eel
    Cockles, mussels, mackerel and veal
    Pilchard, plankton, St Peter's fish and plaice
    Octopussy jellyfishy
    And dolphin's an aquired taste

    "Who will have a fishy
    On a little dishy?
    I will have a fishy
    When the boat comes in..."
