Hello boys and girls, my name is FatLip, and this is my friend, Sammy the Salmon. Today we're gonna teach you some fun facts about salmon and a brand new dance.

Let me introduce to you a brand new dance
I know you gonna love it if you give it one chance
Its not complicated, its 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, I'm gonna show you how
Put your hands to the side, and silly as it seems
Shake your body like a salmon floating up stream

I 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

They 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 dancing like a fish, while he's doing the snap"
But the more I kept doing it, the more they were feeling it
Then I heard some bitches saying "that n*****'s killing it"
By the end of the night, everyone was on my team


And the whole club was dancing like a salmon swimming up stream!

I float up stream
You know how we do it
You know how we do it again

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

Wow.

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

The moon? Fish pay attention to the moon?! Wow. Who knew?
I float up stream

Did you know...

What?

...That I could go to Japan?

You're kidding me? Amazing. Geez.

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. Huh.
Hey, kids, give it up for Sammy the Salmon and his amazing salmon dance. Huh, what ya say? Alright. Who's hungry?
