I'd like to
Smell like a fish
When I go swimming
In the soupy mix
I like to
Smell like a fish
When I go swimming
Each and everyday faithfully
Hey Mom, when I grow up
I want to be a fish
'Cause I know we're all free to be
What we want to be
So I'd like to
Smell like a fish
When I go swimming
In the deep blue sea constantly

Come on in
And the water's fine
Come on in
And the water's fine

Air is warm
And the ocean's blue
Sky is warm
And the ocean's blue

Come on in
The water's fine
Come on in
The water's fine

I'd like to
Smell like a fish
When I go swimming
In the soupy mix

Sky is warm
And the ocean's blue
Constantly warm
Faithfully blue

I'd like to
Smell like a fish
I like to
Smell like me

    General CommentNot to say that Bardo Pond is anything but a major trip, this song really speaks to me. Even as sober as I possibly could be, this song is so innocent and innocently sung that it sometimes brings me to tears. I admit, though, that I'm pretty emotional and my wet little eyes do well with tears easily.

    General CommentWith all due respect to tastemaker, I have to go the opposite direction from his/her comment! This song does NOTHING for me. In fact as much as I WORSHIP Bardo Pond, this song stinks. PLEASE check out just about ANY other Bardo Pond cut and you'll love it! I do agree with tastemaker that Bardo Pond is a major trip, they are UNBELIEVEABLE!
