Ah, the sun beats down On my tan and my well-fed body And the fishermen at the end of the pier Strike a chord of curiosity With their thick lines Yeah, they've caught something big And they asked me Can i lend a hand?
Want you to see What i, i could not see I want you to know What i, i could not know
They got the ropes down underneath her And we started, to pull her up, as she Started to abandon all her children As she got along-side the pier I stared into her one sad eye And i, i began to dream
I want you to see What i, i could not see I want you to know What i, i could not know The most beautiful thing i'd ever seen Oh she's, she's staring back at me
She, was eight feet long And she weighed four hundred twenty pounds And i'll name all her children In hopes that they obtain Some degree of her perfection And it will take them all Two years to hit the water
I want you to see What i, i could not see I want you to know What i, i could not know
The most beautiful thing i'd ever seen Oh she's staring back at me And she's in my mind right now Yeah, the most beautiful thing i'd ever seen
Alright, here's the rub She, she's not comin'... back Yeah, and that's why i sing this song
Hey, i could not know What i got myself into I could not see, what i'd become
I believe, i guess believing Won't bring her on back Yeah, take it away Aw, everything I'll sit on a ledge... outside For the tenth time Too wide Don't wanna have to...
