Vivian finds she's been set adrift with only Gabe to help her. Once back on shore, they round up Lucy and go after the culprits.



Chorus: Hey good folks, would you look at this?
We caught us two big ugly fish!
Step right up, folks, and you will see
The biggest catch in Mis-souri!

A fool-proof plot they tried to hatch,
The proof's the fools in our big catch.
Ain't no one gonna believe their eyes,
That we caught such a mighty prize!

Their own greed made for dandy bait,
We didn't have long to sit and wait.
We caught 'em as they tried to flee,
The biggest darn fish you'll ever see!

Chorus: ALL

One's a cheat and one's a bum,
They're common bottom-feeding scum.
You think a gar has nasty looks?
Just wait until you see these crooks!

Just watch 'em flop upon the ground,
A-tumbling and a-rolling 'round.
Big and fleshy, with buggy eyes,
Ain't never before caught fish this size!

Chorus: ALL

In all my days, I ain't ever yet,
Caught such big ones in my net.
One here's got a mighty stench,
I got a rare variety --- I think it's French!!

Chorus: ALL
