Some Irish examples:

Cod Save Ireland

and, of course,

It would be best to lowercase the F in the subject line. As it is, I suspected a reference to Leslie Fish, tho I wasn't betting on it.

As a young child, one of my favorites was the lullaby "Yo Ho Little Fishy."

There's a wee little fishy that I love the best.
And it's time for that fishy to lay down and rest.

Yo Ho little fishy, don't cry, don't cry.
For you'll be a big fishy by and by.

You will go to a school and learn from a book,
How not to get caught on the fisherman's hook.

Yo Ho little fishy...

You will learn to swim right past the fisherman's bait.
So as not to end up on the fisherman's plate.

Yo Ho little fishy...

When you swim in the sea and get bit on the knee-
That's a moray

Guest, Julia,

I always sang that song as:

"When an eel bites your thigh,
And you think you will die,
That's a moray."

He's a cad; he's a ham;
His last name's Amsterdam -
That's a Morey.

He stole bases for thrills,
And his last name is Wills -
That's a Maury.

Around Christmas of 2009, Joe Offer declared the Robert Earl Keen, Jr. song "Merry Christmas from the Family" to be Mudcat's Official Christmas Song.

May I suggest that his "The Five Pound Bass" would make a great Mudcat's Official Fish Song?
