Subject: Title ' The goldfish song'
From: pavane
Date: 19 Jun 01 - 05:42 AM

And still they come! End of verse was


They just go round and round
Chorus
And round and round
And round and round
And round and round
And round

Sort of repetetive, this one

Yup - that looks like it - but I did do a search on Goldfish and all I got was an irrelevant thread

That's a different version than I know.

The goldfish is a quiet pet
He does not 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 and round and round
And round and round and round.

He does not neigh or moo or cluck
He does not make a sound
He just swims ...

And when it is his time to eat
I know where he'll be found
He just swims ...

And when it comes his time to mate
I bet you fifteen pound
He'll just swim ...

And when at last he tried to speak
He tried to make a sound
The water ran right down his throat
And the poor bugger drowned
And drowned and drowned and ...

The tune I know this to is an old hymn - sorry, but I don't know the name of it.

Jacob

Hey Pavanne, How come you love all my trashiest songs?

THE GOLDFISH

The goldfish is a solemn bloke He never makes a sound
he just swims round and round and round and round and round and round

He swims beneath the water but He's never, ever drowned -
he just swims round and round and round and round and round and round

And when the mating season comes He doesn't leap or bound -
he just swims round and round and round and round and round and round

And if the missiles start to fall I'll bet an even pound -
he'll just swim round and round and round and round and round and round

Continue until dizzy

I used to sing this in folk clubs that would let me. It then went:

The Goldfish is a solemn bloke
He just swims round and round
And round and round and round
And round and round and round

He lurks beneath the water but
He never makes a sound
And round and round and round
And round and round and round

He opens up his mouth to speak
But you'll never hear a sound
He just keeps swimminground and round
And round and round and round

Sometimes he swims towards the sky
Sometimes towards the ground
But generally he just swims round
And round and round and round

And when it's time for him to eat
I'll bet an even pound
He'll keep on swimming round and round
And round and round and round

And when the mating season comes
He doesn't leap or bound
He'll just keep swimming 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 and round and round

Graham Barnes of Robb Johnson's 'Ministry of Humour' introduced me to this - Lots of options for extra verses as :-

The Goldfish is a Fiscal beast , He cares not for the floating pound
He spends his time in a Goldfish bowl etc

Can't find Mike Pryor's "Kids love a goldfish" on the Mudcat. If nobody shows me where it is I guess I'll have to add it...
