illustrative lyrics

Celebrate National Catfish Day!

From our stacks: Cover detail from The Catfish Song. Words by Maxwell Anderson. Music by Kurt Weill. New York: Chappell, 1954.

The lyrics are pretty good too: 

Oh catfish, come on my line, Oh catfish, come in my hand.                                 Oh catfish, you must be mine; You’re goin’ to walk on land.
