My Fish Ran Away
By: Tom Seley

This is a song about a fish named Rufus and his quest for freedom

    D                G      A
My fish ran away
My fish ran away
Rufus and I were the best of friends
I fed him ev-e-ry day…ev-e-ry day

D                     G                A
Living alone had me searchin’ for a boarder
D                      G                         A
So I bought him one day for three dollars…and a quarter
D                     G                          A
I walked out the pet store on a bright shiny summer morning
D                                G                A
And then he left me on a cold dark day without warning…take warning!


D                G      A
My fish ran away
My fish ran away
Rufus and I were the best of friends
I fed him ev-e-ry day…ev-e-ry day

D                                 G        A
I don’t even know why he wanted to go [What could have possibly possessed him to go]
D                                     G             A
I gave him everything that a fish could want…He even told me so
D                                     G             A
We used to talk over breakfast, talk a little more over lunch
D                                     G             A
Chew the fat, chitter chat, talk about this and that and then such and such


D                G      A
My fish ran away
My fish ran away
Rufus and I were the best of friends
I fed him ev-e-ry day…ev-e-ry day!

Bm                              G                    A
The yearning for freedom strikes deep in all of our hearts
Saying farewell to the ones we love must be the hardest part
He could have at least left a note for me to find
Now I’ll never know what happened to that good friend of mine (All I know is…)


D        G      A        A
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]

D            G           A            A
Maybe you can help me with this next part
I have sneaking suspicion that Rufus is out there somewhere
And that if we just let him know that he’s welcome back at any time
The fishbowl is waiting on the counter and we’ve got some food for him in
a half-full thing of fish food (that’s not too far past it’s expiration date).
That maybe, just maybe, if he knows that we all miss him very much
He’ll return to the fish bowl on the counter and I can bring him to the class and he can 
the class pet.  We’ll make him the class pet.  We’d even make him the class president.  
make him the President.  Rufus for president!!!

Repeat after me:
Rufus come back
Rufus come back

Swim it on back
Swim it on back

Take a train if you need to
Take a train if you need to

We really wanna see you
We really wanna see you

Sincerely: Yeah, I think it’s gonna work.

D         G       A      A
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]
My fish ran away [wailing]
