(This was inspired by Kavonne's clever image remix "Impossible Love." Resourced at the bottom.)


I ask of you now
Have you heard the tale
Of the two star-crossed lovers
Who were destined to fail?


One from the desert
The other the sea
‘Twas an unlikely pairing
Not meant to be.


Bob was a cactus
An unfortunate bloke
He lived all alone
No one dared to get close.


And Gill was a blowfish
A spiney-some lass
When she got nervous
She puffed up with gas.


Neither could find
A suitable mate
It seemed nature’d dealt them
A very cruel fate.


But if that’s what you’re thinking
Then you’re quite in err
For this story’s not over
It doesn’t end there.


One day while out swimming
Gill was suddenly snagged
By a man with a net
Who put her in a bag.


She traveled the world
Until she was sold
To a pet store in Vegas
Or so she was told.


All Gill could see now
Was a row full of tanks
Of other sad fish
Joining the ranks.


Meanwhile in Texas
Bob stood with some friends
They grew happy and wild
Where the dusty road ends.


And in similar fashion
To Gill’s sorry plight
Someone took him away
Stole him in the night.


They planted poor Bob
In a clay little pot
Put him on a shelf
In a tacky gift shop.


And that’s where he stood
Feeling oh so alone
Until a little girl begged
To give him a home.


Her mother relented
And gave her her wish
Because after all
She’d bought Billy that fish.


So off to the suburbs
Bob found his way
He had no idea
It was his lucky day.


For his new little friend
Put him on a sill
In view of a beautiful
Blowfish named Gill.


And what can I say?
It was love at first sight
Gill blew up with air
It gave Bob a fright.


But he knew from then on
He wouldn’t be lonely
She’d be his companion
His true one and only.


And that’s how days passed
Spending time together
Gill blew him heart bubbles
Bob built her a tether.


So one day they’d
Be able to go
Walking around
Or maybe a show.


The cactus and blowfish
A prickly old pair
One planted in ground
One floating in air.


If you see them around
Give 'em a smile
The best darn love story
You’ve heard in a while.

Just a note for anyone who might want to do a voiceover (please!), Gill is pronounced like Jill.

A natural-born dreamer, the little girl walked a tightrope between what was and what could (never) be.

Until one day, she lost her balance.

(UPDATE 8.23.12. I'm adding this to the HitRECord Academy Collab with the hopes that it might help some people out. Be aware that it was released over a year ago and there have been some big big changes to the site since then. It could definitely use some revision. So maybe at some point I'll get around to updating it, or maybe someone else would like to remix a newer one? Either way, I think there are still many parts that are valid and informative to new members.)

Congratulations! You just joined HitRECord! What are you going to do...
