Lyrics

c. Joe Bishop

Has it ever dawned on you, I just want to spawn with you
I’ll just swim right up your crick, I don’t need no fancy tricks
Find a bed of pebble stone, you and me all alone
Has it ever dawned on you, I just want to spawn with you

Now I’m not eating anymore, since we left that ocean shore
Since we left that salty taste, letting ourselves go to waste
No time to sleep, no time to rest, witnessing our rotting flesh
Has it ever dawned on you, I just want to spawn with you

I’m losing tail, I’m losing fin, can’t believe the shape I’m in
Against the current every day, where there’s a will there’s a way
I will clear the sand and mud, for us to make our salmon love

I hope that you don’t think I’m rude, because my lower jaw protrudes
Just because my teeth are black, and I have a humpy back,
It doesn’t mean that I will fail, if I just have half a tail
Has it ever dawned on you, I just want to spawn with you

I’m losing tail, I’m losing fin, can’t believe the shape I’m in
Against the current every day, where there’s a will there’s a way
I will clear the sand and mud, for us to make our salmon love

It’s our last chance to find romance, flounder in our spawning dance
I will treat you very fine, ‘cos there’s just one thing on my mind
I still see with one good eye, we have a chance to multiply
Has it ever dawned on you, I just want to spawn with you
