First I seen the devil ray, flappin’ like a sail
He’s moving kinda slow and he’s twitchin’ with his tail.
Cruisin’ real quiet like,
Think he’s eatin’ Mike and Ike.
His genus is the Mobula
His species is hypostoma.
Feedin’ on crustaceans
wash it down with libations.
Next I seen a channel cat,
Swims a lot so he ain’t fat,
Got big whisker thingies
Wearin’ lots of fisher-blingy.
Some folks think he don’t taste so good
When he’s in the neighborhood
Flop him in some bread crumbs
He be playin’ deaf and dumb.
Then I seen an eel swimmin’
Lookin’ like he’s stalkin’ wimmin.
He knows since he’s a slinky snake
One sight at him is all it takes
To make ‘em go “Eek!”
and they start to freak.
Limeys like to eat them things
but indigestion’s all they bring.
