Sublime – Bad Fish lyrics

When you grab a hold of me

Tell me that I'll never be set free

But I'm a parasite creep and crawl I step into the night.

Two pints of booze

Tell me are you a badfish too? Are you a badfish too?

Ain't got no money to spend

I hope the night will never end

Lord knows I'm weak

Won't somebody get me off of this reef

Baby your a big blue whale

Grab the reef when all diving fails

I swim but I wish I never learned

The water's too polluted with germs

I dive deep when it's ten feet overhead

Grab the reef underneath my bed

Underneath my bed

Ain't got no quarrels with God Ain't got no time to grow old

Lord knows I'm weak

Won't somebody get me off of this reef

Ain't got no quarrels with God. Ain't got no time to get old

Lord knows I'm weak

Won't somebody get me off of this reef
