LyricsEdit

Les poissons, les poissons
How I love les poissons
Love to chop and to serve little fish
First I cut off their heads
 
Then I pull out their bones
Ah mes oui,
Ça c'est toujours delish

Les poissons, les poissons
Hee-hee-hee, haw-haw-haw
With the cleaver I hack them in two
I pull out what's inside
And I serve it up fried
God, I love little fishes, don't you?

Here's something for tempting the palette
Prepared in the classic technique
First you pound the fish flat with a mallet
Then you slash through the skin
Give the belly a slice
Then you rub some salt in
'Cause it makes it taste nice

Zut alors! I have missed one! Shh. . .

Sacre bleu! What is this?
How on earth could I miss
Such a sweet little succulent crab?
Quel domage! What a loss!
You belong in the sauce
With some flour, I think, just a dab

Then I'll stuff you with bread
It won't hurt--you'll be dead
And you'll surely be lucky you are
Cause its gonna be hot
In my big copper pot
Toodle-loo, mon poisson, au revoir!


RepriseEdit

The Broadway musical version features a reprise, again sung by Chef Louis and his chef assistants as they present the dinner party with their meal, frightening Ariel with all the dead fish, until the party is crashed by Sebastian breaking out of Louis' copper pot, sending the dinner party into turmoil.


Louis:
And now something truly exquisite
The creme of the creme de la creme!
Ho, ho, ho you may ask, but what is it?
It's a teensy surprise
A delectable treat
One I'm sure you'll just love.
Allez, bon appetit!

Chefs:
Les Poissons, Les Poissons!
Ooh la, la!
Here they are!
Say bonjour to our friends from the sea!
Chef 1: Fish fillet!
Chef 2: Fish pate!
Chef 3: Fish flambe!
Chef 4: Fish tartare!
Louis: It's a fish-how you say?-jamboree!
Chef 5: Curried bass!
Chef 6: Kippered smelt!
Chef 7: Fish-ka-bobs!
Chef 8: Tuna melt!

Louis: If it's grilled, its been grilled to a "t"!

Chefs:
Fish lightly toasted and roasted and steamed!
Tossed in the blender and tenderly creamed
Dish after dish like you'd wish to have dreamed!

Louis:
And now for the grand finale
La piece de resistance
A delicacy, by golly
You won't find in the restaurants!
A tidbit to tease your taste buds
With that certain je ne sais quois
Voila!
