Tune is Ride an Old Paint. Based on real now Croatians..was part of Italy..who worked on the docks in Seattle.

I MAKA THE BOX I PACKA THE FISH
(mg)

I maka the box I packa the fish
I lay them out nice and tight flat as you wish
I take to the market I pack in the ice
Oh my dear fishes now don't you look nice

Chorus:
Swim around swim around the country you live in is called Puget Sound
Repeat

I come from the old world I fish the sardine
They call me a WOP here now what do that mean
I work with the Chinaman Musselman Greek
All color they come in all language they speak

My brother Domingo he work on the docks
He painta the picture that go on the box
He make the fish happy he jump in the air
Watch out my dear fishes I catcha you there

I tella my sons you go to the sea
You be the captain not fish pack like me
I sitten them down and many times told
The sea is the silver the fish is the gold

Know the songwriter's name, mg? Even if it's you that wrote the song, it's important for us to have that stated clearly.
