Comments about Richard Anders
I Wish I Were A Fish
I wish I wish I were a fish
a salmon or an eel
I`d swim across the Ocean blue
to see how it would feel.
I`d come across a shark or two
a porpoise or a seal
a tiny little sardine
then next a hump back whale.
I`d swim beside a dolphin
as through the waves he`d skim
but should I meet a Conger eel?
well, I`ll steer clear of him!
And if I met a whaler
I`d pray someone would sinkum
and as they say in Ozzie land
that would be Fair Dinkum!
The ice the ice the crushing ice
our ship is held in a freezing vice
it`s fifty below N.W.of Nome
and some of the crew are crying for home
the fuel is low the food`s near gone
the men are gaunt just skin and bone
the captain`s dead we`re jammed on a floe
there`s nowhere to hide and nowhere to go
