G    Em   x 2 

   G            Em
An oyster was a'travelling 
 G              Em
Along the ocean road;
 G                    Em
He'd been some time preparing, 
    C                 B  
And now he'd left the fold.

 G                   Em
He was sick of being oysterized,    
    C              B           E
And he wanted to explode, to explode


 C      Eb      Bb      F   
Ooh la, ooh la, ooh la, ooh la,
 G
La la la la la la la la            - bis

    G            Em
He saw a pretty flying fish
     G               Em
And said if I could have one wish
      G            Em
I'd change into a flying fish,
     C               B            E
And then I would be happy, yes I would 

 C      Eb      Bb      F   
Ooh la, ooh la, ooh la, ooh la,
 G
La la la la Ooh la la la           - bis  

 G                    Em                   
The flying fish came down to see 
 G                      Em
Just who had made this plea;
 G                    Em
And seeing the poor oyster,
     C               B  
She said this cannot be
    G               Em
An oyster has to stay inside,
    C                   B           E
And a flying fish must flee, all the time

 C      Eb      Bb      F   
Ooh la, ooh la, ooh la, ooh la,
 G
Ooh la la Ooh la la Ooh la Ooh la Ooh la la     
	
	- bis Ooh la la Ooh la la, fizzles out 

 G                     Em  
As the oyster turned to go away,
 G                   Em  
The flying fish was heard to say,
    G             Em     
"If I could find a place to stay,
    C               B           E
I know I would be happy, yes I would" 

 C      Eb      Bb      F   
Ooh la, ooh la, ooh la, ooh la,
 G
Ooh la la la la la la la         - quatro   

	

	Now its hard to figure their Lala's 
        Just do as you please, guys!
	End on a single, drawn Laaa...
