[4/4, fast bluegrass] NEXT TIME Ia€™M GOING TO GET A GOLDFISH --Skip Johnson 1. Last Sunday I brought home Karalina, I thought I'd like for her to meet my mom. She saw something else that she liked better, Sadly that was my brother, Tom. On Monday he took her to the movies, By Tuesday she forgot I had a name-- And now that Wednesday's come, They're somewhere having fun, And all my loving dreams are down the drain. CHORUS Next time I'm going to get a goldfish, And keep her in my bedroom in a bowl. She'll look up at me with those big brown eyes, you see-- And wave her pretty tail for me alone. Next time I'm going to get a goldfish, And save myself the heartache and the pain. She'll have such lovely scales, And she'll prefer me to the snails-- She'll love me fourteen karat every day. 2. On Thursday I went to find a pet store, Still searching for the one who would be true. Now Sue who sold the fish, she was a luscious dish, And it was plain she thought me handsome too. On Friday I took her out to pizza, And who should we meet but brother Tom. He tried to make a pass, But he badly overcast. As we walked out, I heard him carry on-- CHORUS Next time I'm going to get a goldfish, And keep her in my bedroom in a bowl. She'll look up at me with those big brown eyes, you see-- And wave her pretty tail for me alone. Next time I'm going to get a goldfish, And save myself the heartache and the pain. She'll have such lovely scales, And she'll prefer me to the snails-- She'll love me fourteen karat every day. REPEAT LAST 3 LINES OF CHORUS TO END c2002 Skip Johnson All rights reserved
