I think I might, I think I might,
own a fish, if that’s right.
I would like to own five million.
Large and small, they would go in a bin.
I would like to own so ma ny
that I could not count them all.

I think these fish are lovely fish.
I’ve heard that some glow in the dark.
But, my fish they don’t glow quite like that.
No, these fish, they don’t grow like that.
These fish they glow in fish lights.
That’s why they glow with spec ial lights.

I think that fish is a cute fish
like all fish. Swell, lovely fish.
I would like to name that fish Will.
Will’s a fish, and he’s doing quite well.
But, he’s still in the fish store.
That will not do, not at all.
