You know Flounder and Croaker And Striper and Catfish, Herring, Clupeid And Snapper and Flatfish. But do you recall The most famous finfish of all? Erwin the glow-nosed angler Had a bioluminescent lure And if you ever saw it You would have to be immersed All of the other finfish Used to laugh and bite his tail They never let poor Erwin Catch a ride with passing whales Then one turbid Christmas Eve Santa came to say Erwin with your lure so bright Won't you guide my boat tonight? Then all the finfish loved him And they shouted out with glee Erwin the glow-nosed angler You'll go down into the sea The annals of the deep-deep sea!
