The Fisherman



If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
Hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

Saturn, Satan's claws, Santa Claus
Coca Cola made X-mas
Scarlet Santa
Effervescent banter
Father Christmas
Christmas appoints a running December
Special effects so we'll all remember

Sending whores to heaven
Shaking rubber legs around eleven
Casting waves upon two lovers
With cottontail covers
Keeping watchful over sheep
He dares to wake a lion as it rumbles in its sleep

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

Blinding the so called sights
And standing back and watching grown men weep
As a priest sends flowers of romance as he dances the dance
Ask yourself why without using any tricks
A roulette table numbered one to thirty six
In sequence added up six hundred and sixty six
Number of the Beast
Prophesied by those who roam the Middle East

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

All bread needs yeast
To keep away the green mould of envy
Chop off the Queen's feet and cause a media frenzy
Fishing fleets slicing fins off pregnant dolphins in Japanese waters
Men in makeup, men in robes
Liberian militia, severing limbs off infants at the side of the road
People in glass houses who wish it was a farm
Billionaires' daughters in paupers' sons' arms
The slumber of a gorilla as he shakes the mountainside
Men exchanging graces for the pleasure of a ride

If you never made a stand, you've never made no rules
Day time freaks, night time fools
Sending messages home by mobile phone
Kung fu, yoga, Harlem knows ya
Brooklyn show ya, declaration by the Pope of Rome
For Jesus to have Michelangelo's uncle's nose
Man shall not live by bread alone
Use more ink to say I stink
I can lie back laughing, watching you sink

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
Hearing the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing, the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

If you're listening fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're listening, the fisherman's friend
Bring it together again

If you're hearing fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
If you're hearing fisherman's friend
Bring it together again
