GUEST,Scott Lyr Req/Add: The Whiz Fish Song (67* d) RE: Req/ADD: The Whiz Fish Song 03 Jun 05

Wow!! I was sitting on the back steps looking at the stars with my nine year old daughter,and thought back to my dad who passed away in 1998.And for some reason,the "Rubber Monkey" song popped in my head and I started to tell her all about it.He learned it at Camp Pemi in NH in the 30's and would sing it every once in a while after much begging when I was her age.Even grown up,with a little prodding,I'd get him to sing it.Surprisingly,like a lot of others on this board, it was a special family song that I thought no one else knew!So
I told her,for the fun of it,lets Google the song and here I am.
The words are exactly as I remember them,and the second song has almost the correct melody.The end doesn't seem quite right and the refrain seems to be missing but now I remember it and can sing it all.We've decided to start the tradition again,with me in the starring role of course!Thanks to all for reserching and contributing to the search-a very sentimental journey......
