lyrics

Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
Just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be
Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
She's just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be

Made my home in this fishing bowl
You said I would do much better in an aquarium
Where the oxygen is pumped into your very lungs
You know you'll get a better view from the solarium

So I jumped ship via the fishing nets
You said I couldn't bring along a single thing
And the past is the past, my sweet, my pretty pet
With sugar on your tongue
And just a little sting

Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
Just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be
Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
She's just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be

So I jumped in and I dove head first
You said, you'd better bring a light
So you can glow in the dark
For every single note that I have over-rehearsed
There's another wave to ride
To make my water-mark

Thought that I had brought it
Just a little too late
But I won't let the current
Determine my fate
Thought that I had brought it
Just a little too late
But I won't let the current
Determine, determine, determine
Determine, determine, determine
Determine, determine my fate
My fate, no

Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
Just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be
Little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
She's just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be
Than she thought she'd be
She's just a little bit bigger
Than she thought she'd be

A little fish swimming
In the deep blue sea
