Verse:
Next Fri - day night you're all in - vi - ted to dance from eight till five,
All the fish - es still a - live are hav - ing a ball.
It's some af - fair, they'll all be there from the Her - ring to the Whale,
They'll turn out to shake a scale, in Nep - tune's Hall.
 
Chorus:
Come a - long and fol - low me to the bot - tom of the sea,
We'll join in the jam - bo - ree, At The Cod -fish Ball!
Lob - sters dan - cing in a row, Shuf -fle off to Buf -fa -lo,
Jel - ly fish sway to and fro at the Cod - fish Ball!
Fin - nan - had - die lead the eel, Through an I - rish reel,
The Cat - fish is a dan - cing man, But he can't can can like a sar - dine can!
Tu - nas "truck - in'" left and right, Min -nies mooch - in' what a night!
There won't be a hook in sight at the Cod - fish Ball.
