Ye Gods! how I'd like to have that for supper tonight, the way my father used to serve it!
Edit: after 8 views, I finally found original was by Cole Porter, in "Leave It To Me" act II. The verses below are an obvious plagiarism.

My Heart Belongs To Daddy


While tearing off a game of golf
I may make a play for the caddy
But when I do, I don't follow through
Cause my heart belongs to Daddy

If I invite a boy some night
To dine on my fine finnan haddie
I just adore, his asking for more
But my heart belongs to Daddy

Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
So I simply couldn't be bad
Yes, my heart belongs to Daddy
Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, DAAAAD

It is a filleted haddock,smoke cured and flavored. Just warmed up in milk with a bit of butter, it is delicious.
I mentioned aldehydes a bit ago. Smoke has traces of aldehydes that kill bacteria, and keep smoked food from spoiling, but are gone before the food is consumed.

The haddock have been overfished, depleted, and no longer
so readily available as formerly.

A while back there was a discussion of jazz terms and as far as I could see the only non-lewd word was "the".

I had finnan haddie chowder in Nova Scotia - utterly fabulous!

Ha! I'm teaching musical theatre this year to high school students. I'm tempted to give them a copy of this thread.
