Song For Salmon, Sockeye or Otherwise

Salmon onna sammich,
Salmon onna plate.
Any way you fix it,
I think salmon's great!

Catch it in the ocean,
Dump it from a can,
Other than as sushi
I'm its biggest fan.

Shape it into patties.
Fry it nice and brown.
Any way you fix it,
Salmon takes the crown.

Guess what I had for supper last night? Wow! You must be psychic! Yeah, I had salmon!

When I was in England umpty-ump years ago, they gave me "tinned" salmon sandwiches on heavily buttered bread, and that's still the world's greatest treat to me.

Three cheers for the fish I used to call, when I was wee, "good old sam!"
