On the 1st day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- A cod that was trying to eat a whiting.

 

On the 2nd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me-Some bait fish that would surely be handy.

 

On the 3rd day of Christmas, my true love gave to me-A Cod fish that had to be released back to the sea.

 

On the 4th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me-A haddock that was tasty as can be.

 

On the 5th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- A bluefin tuna bringing us much glee.

 

On the 6th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me-A striper to grill in tasty lemon cream.

 

On the 7th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- A halibut that was just as big as he.

 

On the 8th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- some oysters from the river near the sea.

 

On the 9th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- A blue Shark that tried to snatch our daily feed.

 

On the 10th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- A fillet man who works quick and nimbly.

 

On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me- enough lobsters to feed a crowd of 33.
