Badfish
Sublime Lyrics


When you grab a hold of me
Tell me that I'll never be set free
But I'm a parasite,
Creep and crawl I step into the night.
Two pints of booze
Tell me are you a badfish too?
Are you a badfish too?
Ain't got no money to spend
I hope the night will never end
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef

Baby you're a big blue whale
Grab the reef when all duck diving fails
I swim, but wish I'd never learned
The water's too polluted with the germs
I dive deep when it's ten feet overhead
Grab the reef underneath my bed (it's underneath my bed)
Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to grow old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef

Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to get old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef

[Verse 1]
When you grab a hold of me
Tell me that I'll never be set free
But I'm a parasite
Creep and crawl, I step into the night

[Pre-Chorus]
Two pints of booze
Tell me, are you a badfish, too?
(Are you a badfish, too?)

[Chorus]
But, I
Ain't got no money to spend
I hope the night will never end
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?

[Verse 2]
Baby, you're a big blue whale
Grab the reef when all duck divin' fails
I swim, but I wish I never learned
The water's too polluted with germs

[Pre-Chorus]
I dive deep when it's ten feet overhead
Grab the reef underneath my bed
(Underneath my bed)

[Chorus]
But, I
Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to grow old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?

[Solo]

[Chorus]
Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to get old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?

Wow, I'm 44. It's always made me feel the sadness in his soul when this gets played.
I'm so sorry for your loss of your mother.
When sublime tried to hire that "Rome" guy.... That was such a let down!

My youngest brother was a huge Sublime fan back in the 90s, he put me on to them. Unfortunately my brother, Anthony, passed in 2015 the same way Bradley did. It's sad. RiP to both them boys, and all the others lost to the struggle. God bless❤️🙏
