Virgin Sturgeon (3) Caviar comes from virgin sturgeon Virgin sturgeon's a mighty fine fish Virgin sturgeon needs no urgin' That's why caviar is my dish! Shad roe comes from scarlet shad fish Shad fish have a very sad fate Pregnant shad fish is a sad fish Got that way without a mate! Mrs. Clam is optimistic Shoots her eggs out in the sea Hopes her suitor is a shooter Hits the selfsame spot as she! The green sea-turtle's mate is happy With her lover's winning ways First he grips her with his flipper Then they flip for days and days! I fed caviar to my Lady She was a virgin tried and true Now that virgin needs no urgin' Now there's nothin' she won't do! I fed caviar to my rooster I fed caviar to my cow, Now the barnyard sure looks funny: All the cows have feathers now! The oyster's a prolific bivalve Keeps its' innards in its' shell, How they diddle is a riddle, But they do, so wotthehell! The trout is just a little salmon, Just half-grown, and minus scales, But the trout, just like the salmon Can't get on without his tail! Give a thought to the happy codfish Always there when duty calls, Female cod fish is an odd fish From her come your cod fish balls! A lucky fish is the common starfish When for offspring they essay; Yes, me hearties, they have parties In the good old fashioned way! I fed caviar to my grandpa He was a man of ninety-three Shouts and screams were heard from grandma As he chased her up a tree! Every living thing will do it Without making lots of fuss When they do it, they don't rue it, So my darlin', why not us? tune: Reuben, Reuben AJS
