Fishdaddy Lyrics

I had a headache my body felt cold
But I was still kinda young, twenty-six years old
Poisons of all sort flowed through my brain
I never felt sorrow and I rarely felt pain
Why did I always wear a frown
What was it? What was getting me down ?

The problem is I ain't no city-slicker
I dig street sounds, but I ain't no quick sticker
I like bashing lips of a different kind
If I don't get wet soon, I'm gonna loose my mind
I closed up shop, I locked my house up tight.

I headed for the ocean in the middle of the night
First by foot, then a bus and a train
I arrived at a lonely beach that had no name.
I waxed up, then I paddled out alone.
But what I saw next almost turned me to stone
A lovely mermaid with snakes for hair.

I was immobilized by her deep, sultry stare
Every word she said was like a little song
This was no hallucination, my mind wasn't gone.
She said; Excuse me landman, but I want to make a baby
I said; Let me think about it...maybe
But fifteen seconds later, I said all right
And sixteen seconds later is when I saw the light
She began glowing just like a ball of fire
But where the hell had gone my desire?

I didn't know whether to worship her..or buck
Was I dead, or was this just good luck
She said; Landman, don't be nervous don't be shy
But if you don't give it to me I will probably die
All right, Your Highness...if it's a matter of life and
death

I'll give you what you ask, I'll give you my best
Didn't know much about being a father to a fish
But she'd more than convinced me to do as she wished
We did it upside right and upside down
Under the water and above ground
After twenty-four hours we finished the deed
The she asked me, Now lanman is there anything that you
need

I said You sweet fish you there is only one thing that
I would like you to do
Take me with you to your underwater world
Cuz I care about you Miss half-fish/Miss half-girl
She said that Posedon wouldn't like it much
But that she'd try to talk with him today at lunch
To our surprise, Poseidon didn't dispute a thing
Just said, a brother Greek to be a future king
Me? A fish king in the ocean blue

That sounded all right I needed a life that was new
We go married the very next week
No more cars for me, no more city streets
I learned to breath water, like I used to breath air
Snakes grew from my head where there used to be hair
In a few short months Manta's belly grew
And not long after that, she became two.

NOW I'M A FISHDADDY
NEVER EVER THOUGHT I'D BE A FISHDADDY
SO VERY GLAD TO BE A FISHDADDY
FOREVER WANT TO BE A FISHDADDY

Big mermaid, little mermaid both so sweet
I spent my days finding them things to eat
Little fish and lulas* sometimes a worm
Life was even sweeter since Baby Manta was born
But when Baby Manta got a little more bigger
She began to develop a lovely mermaid figure

And soon all of the sharks wanted a piece of her ass
Wanted to slam her in the forest of sea grass
Me and Big Manta, we were worried about our baby
Hoped she'd grow up to be a nice mermaid lady
So we decided to move to the Atlantic

But instead of helping her, Baby Manta became frantic.
The Atlantic shraks were just as bad as the rest
All this temptation was putting our baby to the test
I caught her in a cave with shark, Saltwater Jim
Had his jaws on her nipple and was trying to work his
fin in

I bit Jim in his back with my knifelike teeth
He robbed Baby's innocence, soggy sucker was a thief
Daddy, Baby said, Why did you do what you did?
I'm a big fish now, I'm not no fishkid

BUT WHAT'S A FISHDADDY TO DO?
BUT WHAT'S A FISHDADDY TO DO?
Could someone please tell me,
Cuz I ain't got a clue

BUT WHAT'S A FISHDADDY TO DO?
BUT WHAT'S A FISHDADDY TO DO?

All right Baby, do what you want but be home by one.
Please be careful don't have too much fun
Oh daddy, you can count on me
I'll be a good little mermaid, you'll see
When I got home, I told Manta your daughter is crazy
She said, She's yours too...as a father you're lazy
Soon baby manta started dating Perry
He was the porpoise with a purpose.

He worked part-time at the underwater Red Cross Surplus
Perry and Baby Manta got married the tenth of June
Big Manta sang a beautiful ocean tune
The honeymooned in an old shipwreck
The word Los Angeles was painted on the deck
That brought back many things for me to remember
It'd been eighteen years ago last September

When I first met Manta as a lovely young mermaid
Whose beauty alone had left me in a daze
Out in the ocean, front of that no-name beach
I'd gotten wet that day to get off the street
A damn it I'm so very glad I did

I'm a happy fishdaddy with a wife and fishkid
NOW I'M A FISHDADDY
NEVER EVER THOUGHT I'D BE A FISHDADDY
SO VERY GLAD TO BE A FISHDADDY
FOREVER WANT TO BE A FISHDADDY
