SOME DAYS THERE JUST AIN'T NO FISH (Bob Russell / Carl Sigman) Hoagy Carmichael - 1947 The King Sisters - 1947 Pearl Bailey - 1947 Roy Hamilton - 1959 (Ain't no fish, ain't no flounder, ain't no tuna, ain't no fish) Holy mac-ker-al! Some days there just ain't no fish (Ain't no perch) Ain't no flounder, you flounder for fish (Ain't no fish) And although at times you get a messful Other days are less successful Some days there just ain't no fish (Ain't no fish, ain't no fish) Some days will start mighty fine (With a splash) With a nibble that tugs at your line (Mighty fine) But you reel it in to find you've caught A beat-up shoe that's a-leakin' water Some days there just ain't no fish Tomorrow is unpredictable, so it may be sound advice To put away some extra fish on ice Holy mac-ker-al! Wish for a catch ev'ry day and you're wasting a wish For some days there just ain't no fish (Ain't no fish, ain't no perch, don't get left in the lurch) Holy mac-ker-al (Some days you throw out your bait) (And the World is your oyster, with pearls on your plate) Doin' great! Other times you may play all the angles Still your line just dingle-dangles Some days there just ain't no fish (Tomorrow is unpredictable, so it may be sound advice) (To put away some extra fish on ice) Holy mac-ker-al! Wish for a catch ev'ry day and you're wasting a wish For some days there just ain't no fish Some days there just ain't no fish (Tuna, barracuda, pick-er-all huntin' gound until you're sick-er-all) Holy mac-ker-al! Some days there just ain't no fish (Transcribed from the Hoagy Carmichael recording by Mel Priddle - November 2005)
