Lyrics to The Salmon Dance by The Chemical Brothers

Hello boys and girls, my name is Fat Lip
and this is my friend Sammy the Salmon

'1 - 2′

Today, we're going to teach you some fun facts about Salmon,
and a brand new dance.

Let me introduce to you a brand new dance
I know you're gonna love it if you give it one chance
It's not complicated, it's not too hard
You don't even have to be a Hip-hop star

See anyone can do it, all you need is style
Listen up peep gank I'm a show you how
Put your hands to the side, as silly as silly as it seems
And shake your body like a salmon floating up stream

I'll float up stream
you know how we do it, you know how we do it again

All my peeps spend part of their life in fresh water
And part of their life in salt water

Wow, very interesting

We change round a couple of days after spawning
Then we die

When I first did the Salmon all the people just laughed
They looked around and stood like I was on crack
I heard somebody say out loud what the f@#k is that
This n*#%s dancin like a fish while he's doin' the snap

But the more I kept doing it the more they kept feeling it
Tnd then I heard some bitches say yo that ****as killing it
By the end of the night everyone was on my team
And the whole club was dancing like a salmon floating up stream!

I'll float up stream
you know how we do it, you know how we do it again.

Most of our friends find their home waters by their sense of smell
which is even more keen than that of a dog or a bear


My family also rely on ocean currents, tides
The gravitational pull of the moon

The moon? Fish pay attention to the moon? Wow!

Did you know?


That I could go to Japan, and back

You're kidding me. Amazing ..

Polluted water can kill both baby salmon, that are developing
and the adult salmon, that are on their way to spawn

Wow what a shame, what a shame
Wow. Hey kids, hey give it up for Sammy the Salmon and his amazing salmon dance.
Huh? What do you say?
Who's hungry?
