Sat here by this stony brook until the Grey day turned to dust When up swam a fish with a children's book thought that I was lost He was on his way to the salmon hop, that's where they go to breed Saw me sitting on this log and thought I'd like to read [Chorus:] The night was cloudy but the moon he found a hole Said that he felt bad for me cause I had no place to go Why aren't you at the harvest ball with some sweet young gal You just sit like a bump on the log and call that fish your pal Well, I told him I was an orphan lived here all alone But many people have often tried to catch and take me home They never caught me Thought that I was a hiding, call this log my home But the fish and the moon and a sweet young gal All want me for their own [Chorus] So I met that gal at the harvest ball, she took me to her room While I slept in children's dreams, the fish ran away with the moon The fish ran away with the moon The fish ran away with the moon
