"Fish Heads" as written by Bill Mumy and Robert S. Haimer....
Fish heads fish heads roly poly fish heads
Fish heads fish heads eat them up yum

In the morning laughing happy fish heads
In the evening floating in the soup

Ask a fish head anything you want to
They won't answer they can't talk

I took a fish head out to see a movie
Didn't have to pay to get it in

They can't play baseball they don't wear sweaters
They're not good dancers they don't play drums

Roly poly fish heads are never seen drinking cappuccino
In Italian restaurants with oriental women yeah

    General CommentFish heads...this is one of my favorite songs ever. And this is coming from somebody whose favorite songs can generally be described as prog. Fish heads! I remember the first time I heard this song. I was in a car with my then-best friend (we're not friends anymore). Her mum, who likes Dr. Demento, put a CD with this on it on. My friend protested loudly, as she hates this kind of thing.

    But I was mesmerized.

    Now I've memorized the words, learned how to play it on accordion, and sing it with my sister all the time. Life doesn't get any better than that.

    General CommentI think the song embodies several ideas.
    Mostly that one man's garbage is another man's roly-poly treasure.
    Also that, unlike people, inanimate objects won't let you down, especially if you don't have any preconceived expectations of them.
    Plus, it's just good silly fun.
