"Lament Of The Fish" is based on a cartoon by Gary Larson (award winning cartoonist of "The Far Side" series).

The particular cartoon shows three fish swimming around a tank and one dead on the surface. In the background there is an old woman sitting, reading a newspaper and totally oblivious to the fact that one of her fish has died.

The other fish knock insistently on the glass trying to get her attention but unfortunately the old woman is deaf and cannot hear them so they sing woefully of their frustration!

This comical musical theatre song is written for 2 'male fish', a 'female fish' and a chorus of fish. It should be played and sung in a totally light-hearted way with as much over acting as possible!!!

Falsetto is the key to this song!
