The Chemical Brothers – The Salmon Dance

The Salmon Dance

Hello boys and girls, my name is Fatlip,
And this is my friend, Sammy the Salmon (what it do)
Today, we're gonna teach you some fun facts
About salmon, and a brand new dance...

[Verse 1]
Let me introduce to you a brand new dance
I know you gonna love it if you give it one chance
It's not complicated, it's not too hard
You don't even have to be a hip-hop star
See anyone can do it, all you need is style
Listen up, peep game, I'mma show you how
Put your hands to the side, and silly as it seems
And shake your body like a salmon floating up stream!!

I'll float up stream
(You know how we do it
You know how we do it)

[Verse 2]
(All my peeps spend part of their life in fresh water and part of their life in salt water)
Wow, very interesting
(We change round a couple of days after spawning, then we die)
When I first did the salmon all the people just laughed
They looked around and stood like I was on crack
I heard somebody say out loud,
"What the fuck is that? This nigga's dancing like a fish, while he's doing the snap"
But the more I kept doing it, the more they were feeling it
And then I heard some bitches say, "Yo, that nigga's killing it"
By the end of the night, everyone was on my team
And the whole club was dancing like a salmon floating up stream

I'll float up stream
(You know how we do it
You know how we do it)

[Verse 3]
(Most of our friends find their home waters by sense of smell
Which is even more keen than that of a dog or a bear)
(My family also rely on ocean currents, tides, gravitational pull of the moon)
(I float up stream)
The moon? Fish pay attention to the moon?! WOW! Who knew?
(Did you know...)
(...That I could go to Japan? And back?)
You're kidding me? Amazing. Geez
(Polluted water can kill both baby salmon that are developing
And the adult salmon that are on their way to spawn)
Wow, what a shame. What a shame. Huh
Whoa! Wow, hey, kids, hey, give it up for Sammy the Salmon
And his amazing salmon dance. Huh, what'd say? Alright. Who's hungry?
