Little Boy Fishin' by Shirley Abicair.

"We settled on "Willie Can" and recorded it with George Martin at Parlophone. George Martin, too, had got the message, and his warm, silent understanding and musicianship was right with us when I recorded "Smiley" and "Little Boy Fishin'" which followed in the summer.

"The Fisherman Song", sung by Judy Collins and the Anything Muppets on Sesame Street in 1972.

Gone fishin', by a shady, wady pool
I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool
I'd say, "No more work for mine"
On my door, I'd hang a sign,
"Gone fishin'" instead of just wishin'

Gone fishin', got your hound dog by your side
Gone fishin', fleas are bitin' at his hide
Folks won't find us now because
Mister Satch and mister Cros
We gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'

Bah-boo-baby-bah-boo-bah-bay-mmm-bo-bay
Oh yeah!

Robert Rixby and Thomas Doubleday wrote a number of songs about fishing, many of which appeared in their book "The Fisher's Garland", printed in 1823. The pair were from Newcastle. One song, "Coquet Side" can be heard on the CD "The Quiet Hills" (Kyloe CD105), sung by local shepherd Graham Dick.

Ballad of the Chivalrous Shark. Although in this day and age, not many people seem to understand the difference between "man" (= animal species Homo Sapiens) and "man" (= adult male human), on which the joke depends.

I remember in the '60s a little one verse ballad called: I'm Fishing

I'm Fishing
Dont talk anybody, dont come near,
Cant you see that the fish might hear.
He thinks I'm playing with a piece of string
He thinks I'm another sort of - funny sort of thing
But he doesn't know I'm fishing
He doesn't know I'm fishing
That's what I'm going

Fishing.

the goldfish is a funny fish
He doesnt make a sound
He just swims round and round
And round and round and round and round
And round and round and round and round and round and round
and round and round and round

~ of course that's humans' fault, keeping the poor fish in a little round orb. Tune sounds like a hymn but I dont know the name of the it.

sort of

"Starfish-On-The-Toast" Donovan

Fine rock pooling coast
this starfish on the toast
the men in the herring boats they cry

Far across the harbor
and 'round the sandy cove
the shepherd with his pipe and sheepy drove

big cloud tumbling high
the amazing flying sky
how the gulls are pillaging the town

fan faring daffodilly
trumpetingly small
all along the bathing hut wall

far across the empty beach
the tide has built a world
old men in tweed find study there

Holding whelks and periwinkles
trembling in his hand
little does he know they hold him too

[I got lyrics off web and changed some words to what I remember, but it may need corrected]

The goldfish one (round and round and round) I heard Judy Cook sing as alternate lyrics to Auld Lang Syne, not a hymn, but same funny effect (particularly since that's one song folks can seldom get past the first verse)

Stan Rogers' "Tiny Fish For Japan" "Jeannie C"

"Codfish Ball" - might have come from Shirley Temple - I know it as a jug band piece done by the Smokin' Fez Monkeys

"Good Fish Chowder" on a Deb Cowan album - FUN singalong as she does it.

"Hey Ho Little Fishes" - Bok, Muir Tricket or Cooper & Nelson versions
"Dance to thy Daddy"both lullaby sorts of songs

Archie Fisher's "Final Trawl" - end of the life of a fishing boat.
Jeannie C is one of a slew of fishing boat disaster songs, that are more about the boat than fishing. like" Threescore and Ten" & ""The Bergen" (Jez Lowe)

Joanne in Cleveland, contemplating the concept of fishing in post EPA times.
