“We Will Sell Fish”

Music and Lyrics by Jordan R. Mencher

L: Carp, pike, trout, flounder, and red snapper too
J: Squid, shrimp, and eels, they make money for you
L: Look all around you and what do you see?
J: Tipping the scales will make money for me

L: Sometimes it’s messy, but don’t put it down
J: I can sell fish if I stop with the frown
L: Though you’re a painter, from you fish they’ll buy
J: But I’m an artist, my skills don’t apply

L: If you just watch me, I’ll learn you the trade
J: And for this mitzvah, I guess I’ll be paid
L: If you so wish
J: If I so wish
L: If you so wish
