Respect for the dignity of delicious life with lemon and butter on top
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment
Trying to take the tuna out one by one
To take them home and fry them quickly
How naive these killers of tuna are
Do they really think they can trick a fish
With lures and lines and an ugly worm
Dangling in front of them for amusement
Tuna were not born yesterday you know
They come from noble eggs exposed at birth
Ready to attack or swim away to safety
To protect their dignity from the depraved
What harm have tuna ever done to men
Have they no shame when they go fishing
When they hang fish like trophies on a wall
Make sandwiches of them for a child's lunch
Tuna never go to war or betray the trust of others
True. They do not respect their mothers
But if they knew them that would be another story
A fish story for sure
