Moxy Fruvous – Pisco Bandito lyrics

(Mike - congas/shaker, Jian - electric guitar, Murray - acoustic guitar, Dave - bass)

(Murray on lead)
In Haliburton near the Lake of Bays
Lives a fish from a faraways
He hates the weather but still he stays
He hates the work but he says it pays

He robs the people as they swim and wade
His little piece of the tourist trade
This little fella's really got it made

(All)
From May to mid-July

(All)
He's Pisco Bandito the bandit fish
If he wants your money, he gets his wish
Then he swims away with a mighty swish
Pisco the bandit fish

(Mike)
Rrrrrrrow!

(rest)
Ba ba da dop

(Murray) (rest)
He left his family down in Mexico (ba ba da dop)
To fly (ply?) the waters of Ontario (ba ba da dop)
He didn't want to but he had to go (ba ba da dop)
He sends them money every month or so (ba ba da dop)

Swimming beneath the summer sun (ba ba da dop)
Or renting videos of Midnight Run (ba ba da dop)
A bandit's life is lots of fun

(All)
It's lots and lots of fun

(All)
He's Pisco Bandito the bandit fish
If he wants your money, he gets his wish
Then he swims away with a mighty swish
Pisco the bandit fish

[In more recent versions of this song,
The following bridge (up to the acoustic
Guitar solo) has been removed and replaced
With more instrumental material]

(All)
What is Pisco's favourite thing to rob?

(Murray)
They say he likes apple strudel

(All)
What does he do when not on the job?

(Murray)
On the guitar noodle

(Murray acoustic guitar solo, rest singing "ahhhhh")

(rest)
Shom-sheh-lom-sheh-lom

(Dave)
A nautical Bruce Willis

(Mike)
A modern-day Sevalis

(Jian)
Antonio Banderas

(rest)
Whoa!

(Murray)
You may think that to steal is wrong
But he's no worse than Jean Valjean
Except he drinks and carries on
And smashes bottles on the neighbor's lawn

(rest)
Ba ba da dop

(Murray) (rest)
The oceans and the seven seas (ba ba da dop)
Are filled with many different tales like these (ba ba da dop)
Decent folk like you or me

(All)
On the wrong side of the law

(All)
He's Pisco Bandito the bandit fish
If he wants your money, he gets his wish
Then he swims away with a mighty swish
Pisco the bandit fish

(All, with Murray doing scat)
He's Pisco Bandito the bandit fish
If he wants your money, he gets his wish
He swims away with a mighty swish
Pisco the bandit fish
