Everybody gathered where the river runs wider
At the edge of town
To see if that Eddie Lee Vaughn baptism
Was really gonna go down

Folks bet their hard earned money that water wouldn't change a thing
They set the odds at a hundred to one his soul wouldn't never come clean
Then the preacher said, "People take a moment or two
There's something we need to do, pray for the fish"

They won't know what's comin'
When the sin starts rolling off the like's of him
Lord, be with 'em, they ain't done nothin'
Please, won't you leave them just a little bit of room to swim?
Pray for the fish

Well, the preacher ducked 'em under
That cool clear water, then he did it again
Eddie came up yellin', "Lord in Heaven
Halleauh, I'm a brand new man"

Well, the water got to bubblin', sky got to rumblin'
And the thunder backed up the choir, the fish started jumpin'
It was like they was swimmin' in a lake of fire
Then Eddie's momma stepped out of the crowd
And started yellin' out loud, "Pray for the fish"

They won't know what's comin'
When the sin starts rollin' off the like's of him
Lord, be with em, they ain't done nothin'
Please, won't you leave them just a little bit of room to swim?
Pray for the fish

He said, "Everybody cross your fingers
Fold your hands, pray for ole' Eddie
But before we say, Amen
Pray for the fish"

Lord, be with 'em, they ain't done nothin'
Please, won't you leave them just a little bit of room to swim?
Pray for the fish
Lord, pray for the fish
