[b][/b] (Neil Cotton)

See I'm tired of her moaning'
Iím goiní down the road then
Find a quiet place to hide
She worried cause the neighbours
No longer come to see her
Gotta put her fix it list aside

Sheís wants, a fresh coat of paint
Needs to hang 2 sets of drapes
But my priorities
Are frankly none with these
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.

I love her up to the moon
But got handy man blues
Iím not gonna really leave
I only simply need a break
In my bass boat on the lake
Letís call it a reprieve

Sheís wants, a fresh coat of paint
Needs to hang 2 sets of drapes
But my priorities
Are frankly none with these
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.

The call of a loon, the solitude
The hit on the end of the line

Sheís wants, a fresh coat of paint
Needs to hang 2 sets of drapes
But my priorities
Are frankly none with these
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.
Iíve got bigger fish to fry
Iíve got bigger fish to fry.

BIGGER FISH TO FRY (Neil Cotton)

(I wondered if switching the Verse I Lines around sets up the situation better, before giving his solution to the problem.)

See ...

She's worried 'cause our neighbour
No longer comes to see her
(I'LL) Havta set her fix it list aside
I'm so tired of her moaning'
Iím goiní down the road an'
Find (MYSELF) a chill place to unwind

She wants, a fresh coat of paint
Needs ME to hang, 2 sets of drapes (The alternative 'hang' idea, left by the 'rest' suggested by the comma, could be humorous.)
But my priorities
Are frankly none o' these
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!

I love her up to the moon
But I'VE got handy man blues
(I'M) Not really gonna leave (Lining up the Rhyme-Scheme)
Only simply need a break
In my bass boat on the lake
Letís call it a very short reprieve

She wants, a fresh coat of paint
Needs ME to hang, 2 sets of drapes
But my priorities
Are frankly none o' these
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!

(Bridge? Change of Melody, Rhyme-Scheme, cadence, to break the Verse/Chorus, Verse/Chorus Repetition.)

The call of a loon, the solitude
The hit on the end of the line
IíM GONNA catch the boss this time
(Brief, as a Bridge only needs to be. This break in Repetitions with a Change of Dynamics, enables a final giving of the Chorus to end.)

Sheís wantin', a fresh coat of paint (Alternative idea. Say it the same each time, whichever you choose.)
Needs ME to hang, 2 sets of drapes
But my priorities
Are frankly none o' these
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!
Iíve Got Bigger Fish To Fry!

(Here's a Coda recitation to end the story.)

Better head for shore.
I'm losin' the light.
Out here all day

Without a single bite.
What?
No honey, I didn't catch any fish.
Spaghetti? Sounds delicious.
You'll make it while I hang the drapes?
But, it's gettin' dark outside!
She gives me that million dollar grin,
Makes me wonder, where she's goin',

points at the switch,

and flips the lights on!
I've Got, Bigger Fish To Fry!


There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com
