Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel


GYSC inspired me to come up with new lyrics for this song. Sing along. You know the words!

Holy Fish Heads

Holy fish heads!
They've been left too long in the sun midweek
Smell what's beginning to reek

Taste the salmon
You can touch the scales that they tried to clean
You don't want to eat what's green

Gotta sell today
Holy fish heads!

Hardly tasty
There are salmon eyes in the fish head stew
Something they brewed just for you

Race for the toilet
You can stay on the pot 'til the morning light
Oh we will pray you're all right

Gotta sell today, sell today

Inside the rancid skin
There's a bone that's tough as steel
Who is your next of kin?
Life's just become a raw deal

Holy fish heads!
They're the star of the debt brigade
You should be very afraid

Enjoy the salmon
You can't taste his heart but you know it's lean
Some parts can never be seen

[fish head guitar riff]
