Fish of a Different Color


Big fish and small fish
Swimming here in this pond
Fast fish and slow fish
And now one is gone

Poor, foolish fishes
Just make a few stronger
And watch how these fishes
Devour each other

To be the small fish
I'm sure none would bother
But oh, don't you wish
You could make the pond smaller?

I've found my own niche
To live my life fuller
For I am a fish
Of a different color

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
