Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Out on the Rolling Sea (Joseph Spence)
Hey, I just recently put together the talking part of "Rolling Sea" which is kind of a non-sense verse of the fish discussing the "war in heaven" mixed up with some Noah tales. I've been listening to this track since I was a kid, but for some reason I listen to it now and all the words fall in place:

The halibut, tuna, mackerels, and the guppies; the man-o-war want to know, "Did anyone fall?" When the puffer he left without the sand snail; when out on the ocean blow a terrible gale; the seamen beheld that's why their face grew white...

Seamen beheld; While their face grew white, didn't they see what a terrible, what a wonderful sight? Now behold a great whale on the crest of the wave, swallow the prophet no man could save, but Jesus told the fish, he gave the command, they was...

Let me know what you guys think. Looks like someone gave this a shot earlier. Would you change anything?
