I'm in love with a fishwife
She's ragged and rude
She smoked all my stuff, drank all my wine
She ate all my food
I gave her a baby
He looked just like me
But off the coast of Cape Agulhas
She threw him out into the sea

Now down at the bottom
He tossed and he turned
There was no sand to keep him warm
And the black rocks they burned
They came to his bleeding
Tentacle long
And then they floated up towards
Her celebratory song

And she sang

Come, I'll feed you all my babies
Come, feed on me
Come, take me down to heaven
With a deep breath, a swelling in my sea

Now I still love my fishwife
All ragged and rude
She uses her body
As octopus food
She wants more babies
I keep her satisfied
But when she takes that dinghy out
I turn into seaweed inside

Oooh mama, drippin' your dress
The tentacle, he wanna suck on your breast
He got a taste for your flesh from the heart in the chest of your baby

Oooh mama, running down your leg
This loving man, I would've fallen out of bed
But you only care for the tentacle flair of the ocean

Oooh baby, I see you there
With tangles in your pubic hair
No remorse, no despair, just elation at the back of your blank stare

Oooh mama, after midnight
You take to the sea with my baby child
You come home all alone and you tell me what a wonderful time
(I had a really good time)
You come home all alone and I ask you what you did with my child
(What child?)
You come home all alone with a shredded dress and a smile
(Don't you find me sexy in a shredded dress and a smile)
