The Fish Fry Song

So last week we all went to Pius over on Grand for the Friday Fish Fry. It is one of the finer Lenten dinners around. There is live music from an Irish band- Clan Jameson. They hit all the classics like "Danny Boy", "4 and 9" and "Molly Malone". The Fry was packed with familys, kids, grandparents and all sorts in the basement of this neighborhood church.

The highlight of the evening was a song that was composed by Clan Jameson. I went over to sit with Amanda and Brian. Amanda pointed out one song that looked particularly fun. "Fish Fry".

Here are the lyrics:

A great meal is served here on Friday nights, a great deal of comforting warm delights.
A great throng of patrons enjoy great food, and great song and music create the mood.
We're having a fish fry, a fabulous fish fry.
Excitement is rising , it isn't surprising: we can certainly fish fry.
We destined our fish fry to be a delish fry fry, with baked fish and fried fish,
And fresh homemade side dishes, South City's best fish fry.
Geee, wouldn't you agree such gastronomy rouses jubilee? Yes sir!
We're having a fish fry, a Catholic fish fry.
The salmon and cod so delicious from God, it's a heavenly-blessed fish fry.
We're staffing our fish fry with people you live by:
Your friends from the parish and neighbors you cherish, an all-volunteer fish fry.
We're certainly grateful that you came for a plateful.
Delighted to meet you and serve you and seat you at Pius the Fifth's fish fry.
Gee, every recipe is what all agree dining ought to be. Yes sir!
We're having a fish fry, a fabulous fish fry.
So tell all your friends before Lent season ends that we certainly can fish fry.
So tell all your friends before Lent season ends that we certainly can fish fry!

I bet Amanda is going to be reading this tonight at Free Candy, which I think is tonight over at Hartford. Next week we are going to be at the Polish Falcons up on Saint Louis Ave. Yay for fish!

My wife, Julie Mudd, is the lyricist of Clan Jameson. It was her idea to adapt Irving Berlin's "Heatwave".

Correction: Julie wrote the lyrics but the original idea of adapting "Heatwave" came from Sr. Mary Henry.
