"It's lily's turn." - Drewmatik
Well in case you were wondering what happened to the dishes
Or you needed some help and were considering your own fishes
Then I think you should hear this, but I warn you it's shocking
My brother say's, "not so much,' and that I'm no, 'Stephen Hawking"
But Calvin is weird and says things with no meaning
So back to my story about fishes and cleaning
Following our meeting, with much clear direction
I filled the sink with water, and a good soap injection
First I added the catfish who went straight to the bottom
Then the guppies, the goldfish, then the swordtails once I caught them
But as I went to add the angel, I noticed something strange
My goldfish had jumped from the sink to the range
Then one by one, each fish flew through the air
Till they hit bowls, a towel and one landed in a chair
As I put them in my net, I thought, this is not what we rehearsed
Then one last little guppy jumped in to mom's purse
I reached in to grab him, and that's when mom walked through the door
She asked, "What are you doing, and why are there fish on the floor?"
"Because fish like water,' I answered, of course
So I was having these fish help with my chores
When for no reason at all; they all jumped from the sink
So when it comes to doing dishes, I think fishes really stink"
But she wasn't really listening and just kept saying,"Why me, Lord?"
As she rinsed off the suds from the pleco, the guppy, the goldfish and swords
I told her to be careful because fish don't like chlorine
She raised her lip in a snarl and looked really mean
"You know something else they don't like,my dear little boy?"
"What , I asked." "Soap! she said, "it will kill them, Troy."
Well mom took all my fish and put them back in the aquarium
She said, "I hope they're ok", as she sat there staring at them
"Me too,' I said, 'but I guess I lost that bet
So one whole month of dishes because fishes are just pets"
"You made a bet with Calvin, so he knew?" she asked me out right
And you shouldn't lie to your mom, so I said, "yes, earlier tonight"
"Well then you stay right here while your fish are getting better
He'll do the dishes tonight, then tomorrow you'll do them together
Oh, and next time you have a theory, please come get me first
So no fish have to die or even something worse"
"Will do mom,' I said, as she headed for the door
And don't worry, I won't do dishes with fishes no more"
She just shook her head and sighed, as she headed on her way
But once she told me, when she does that, it just means, "I love you anyways"
And there you have it friends; I hope this reaches you in time
Cause I would hate for someone else to commit such a crime
So keep your fish in their tank and not in the sink
And if you want to learn something then click on the links
But if you're no Steven Hawking, then let me help you do the math
We learned that soap is very poisonous, so think about that , next time you take a bath
