One Fish Ball

Written By: Unknown
Copyright Unknown

A man was walking up and down,
To find a place where he could dine in town;
A man was walking up and down,
To find a place where he could dine in town.

He found himself a gorgeous place,
And entered in with gorgeous grace.
He found himself a gorgeous place,
And entered in with gorgeous grace.

He took his purse his pocket hence,
But all he found was fifteen cents;
He took his purse his pocket hence,
But all he found was fifteen cents.

He scanned the menu through and through,
To see what fifteen cents would do;
He scanned the menu through and through,
To see what fifteen cents would do.

The only thing 'twould do at all,
Was buy one___ fish ball;
The only thing 'twould do at all,
Was buy one___ fish ball.

He called the waiter down the hall,
And softly whispered, "One fish ball."
He called the waiter down the hall,
And softly whispered, "One fish ball."

The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"This gentleman here wants one fish ball!"
The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"This gentleman here wants one fish ball!"

The guests, they turned both one and all,
To see who wanted one fish ball;
The guests, they turned both one and all,
To see who wanted one fish ball.

The wretched man grew ill at ease,
And softly whispered, "Bread, sir, if you please."
The wretched man grew ill at ease,
And softly whispered, "Bread, sir, if you please."

The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"You get no bread with one fish ball!"
The waiter bellowed down the hall,
"You get no bread with one fish ball!"

There is a moral to this all:
You get no bread with one fish ball.
There is a moral to this all:
You get no bread with one fish ball.
