"Goldfish" as written by and Joe Purdy....
I'm leaving this morning
I'll call when I can
I'm going fishing on the Rio Grand
Tell'em all I love'em
I don't care what they say
cuz I'm gonna catch me a goldfish today
and I'm gonna catch me some quiet today

I went by the circus but the doors were all closed
and the kids were all screaming for see the big show (??)
and the clown he'd grown tired and his clothes were worm thin
He said I don't care if I ever see this big top again
He says I don't mind if I never see the big top again

I went by the church and I saw the white veil
and I remember the letter that you sent in the mail
and I wish you the best with your new fancy life
with your shiny black car and rich man by your side
with your shiny black car and rich man by your side

I'm leaving this morning
I'll call when I can
I'm going fishing on the Rio Grand
Tell'em all I love'em
I don't care what they say
cuz I'm gonna catch me a goldfish today
I'm gonna catch me a goldfish today

I packed all my things, and it didn't take long
I remember what you looked like when you were young
And I wanted to see you, but I knew it was wrong
So I stayed up all night drinking and singing another song (??)
So I stayed up all night drinking and singing your songs (??)

I'm leaving this morning
I'll call when I can
I'm going fishing on the Rio Grand
Tell'em all I love'em
I don't care what they say
cuz I'm gonna catch me a goldfish today
I'm gonna catch me a goldfish today
Yeah, I'm gonna catch me some quiet today
