Okay, I have recently downloaded several versions of Silver Salmon, but due to poor audio quality/heavy music - I have been unable to make out any of the words. If anyone happens to know the lyrics, even if only parts of it, I would really appreciate to see them...

Many thanks!!!
Britni

"Okay, I have recently downloaded several versions of Silver Salmon,"

There are just 2 versions available on bootleg at the moment.
And the song was written by Tim Staffell (singer in Smile)


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."



(Genesis 1:1)

Freddie: "Lets put a bit of Silver Salmon, I know he doesn't know it, but he might just play on..."
Brian: "..But how?"
Freddie: "Just...just the riff of it"

Thats the little chat of Brian and Freddie in the beginning of the track
the 'person who doesn't know it', is of course John who is not playing on the song

Like a silver salmon
She falls, metal burning

(..)
Look out a silver salmon
Look out, look out, look out a silver salmon

All along the silver skies
The more I am learning
Underneath the silver lies
Metal burning

Salmon, look out look out silver salmon
Oooooh yeah

(..) on tops of trees, she was (...)
Her body lies burning yeah
And falls into the cold sunrise

Ooh oh!
silver, silver. Salmon, silver, silver
Running all along the silver salmon
She rides the burning sky - yeah


Doesn't make sense does it?
I have the feeling Freddie didn't know most of the words. and just improvised and sang what he remembered




"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."

Sorry for the confusion by me saying I have downloaded "several" versions - I meant several different MP3's of the one version. Should have worded that better...

Thank you so much, Fried Chicken, especially for responding so quickly!! The lyrics ARE a bit surreal, but you know Freddie with his improvs (One Vision, etc...) LOL

Oh my silver salmon
tastier than ham 'ooh'

Great with toast
great with mustard
tastier than custard

Someday when all other fishies go away
only my sweet silver salmon will remain

Silver silver silver.. ooh ooh
tasty tasty tasty

(repeat to fade)

Let's put a bit of Silver Salmon... I know he doesn't know, I just, you know... (Die dee) Just the riff of it to see...
[/spoken]


Oh...

Like a Silver Salmon
Shaking falls
They're all burning

Give it all along for -
Yeah
Deep inside they're burning

Look out - Silver Salmon
Look out, look out
Silver Salmon

All along the silver skies
The more I'm learning
All beneath the silver eyes
Forever burning

Salmon
Look out, look out
Silver Salmon

Oohoohoohoohoohoohooh yeah

Victories on top of trees - She was grey
Her body lies in burning lies (?)
And falls into the cold sunrise

Ooh oh ow
- Ooh!

Silver, Silver - Salmon
Silver, Silver - Running all along the Silver Salmon
She reigns the burning sky - yeah

slightly different to Niek's version I think.

I found that one on the net aswell Pim, but read the lyrics and listen to the song at the same time. The one on the internet adds a lot of words, which aren't even close to what Freddie sings.

And the spoken part is totally wrong


"On the first day Pim & Niek created a heavenly occupation. Pim & Niek blessed it and named it 'Loosch'."
