Bohemian Anchovy

As the new Queen biopic is released, the Reckless remembers the epic song which crammed in more fish puns than you can throw a tub of chub at…

Is this marine life?
Is this a manatee?
Caught in a net
No escape from the deep blue sea
From Oban to Skye
Look under the Clyde and see
Who let the cod out?
There’ll be no shrimp for tea
You walrus hurt the one you love
Little Kylie Minnow
Jellyfish and squid, oh
You don’t send me flounders anymore
Poor me

Salmon and krill and clam
Or a prawn cocktail, voila!
Like a sturgeon, Nicola.
Mackerel, pike and just plankton
Are rank – I’ve gone and thrown them all away
Haddock oooo
Is better when deep fried
Kelp! I’ve never smelt this way before
This scampi love
Coi me a river

Tuna, the lobster mash
Tastes lovely soaked in brine
You just ask Rick Stein
Fish pie, Forest Guppy, carp and sole
Craberet, piranha happy face and chew
Salmon oooo (jellyfish and minnow)
Halibut and fry
Great white Christmas – here’s an homage to Jaws

I see a little silhouetto of a shark
Salmon mousse, salmon mousse
We are going to need a bigger boat
And oh what a beautiful marlin
O sole mio, sole mio,
Sole mio, sole mio
That’s a moray
Dory, dory, hallelujah

I’m just a porpoise, nobody loves me
He’s just a porpoise – he’s all blubbery
Spare him his life, throw him back in the sea
Fisherman let me go, will you let me go?
Pish swimmer! No, we will not let you go – let him go
Pish swimmer! No, we will not let you go – let him go
Pish swimmer! No, we will not let you go – let him go
Will not let you go – let me go
Will not let you go – let me go
Roe, roe, roe, roe, roe, roe, roe
Have a kipper, have a kipper, have a kipper, have a go
Heston Blumenthal has a beluga pie for me, for me, for me

So you think you can poach me and scoop out my eye
So you think you can roast me and leave me to fry
Or maybe gut me, fillet and bake me
Just gotta get out, out of the frying pan here

Fish puns really matter
Anyone can see
Fish puns really matter
Fins can only get batter by B:Ream

Stingray to heaven
