“Carnival Fish” – a new song written today for Purim!

Happy Purim! A tradition our family (and band) participates in is the Purim Carnival at our local synagogue (Congregation Shomrei Emunah in Montclair, NJ). At the carnival is a game where kids can win a pet goldfish.

So imagine our surprise when Hoppin’ Holly won a goldfish while we were performing at the carnival last year – we suddenly became pet owners! Watch the video of this brand new song (with our goldfish Rosie II & Rosie III) below:

Carnival Fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought her a tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought a filter that goes in the tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought a pump
That feeds the filter
That goes in the tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought some lights
That light up the pump
That feeds the filter
That goes in the tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought some rocks
That line the bottom
Underneath the lights
That light up the pump
That feeds the filter
That goes in the tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

At the carnival I won a fish
The cutest fish you could ever wish
So we went to the store
And we bought some plants
That stand in the rocks
That line the bottom
Underneath the lights
That light up the pump
That feeds the filter
That goes in the tank
And that’s what we did when I won this fish

Who knew we’d need so much for our fish
I won an education
When I won this fish

OY!!! I forgot the fish food!
