Rick Springfield Performs Funny New Song 'If Wishes Were Fishes' (Video)

As part of the '80s legend's visit to #pretapodcasts to talk about his debut novel, he gave an exclusive performance of his new song, "If Wishes Were Fishes."

We swallowed our urge to request an acoustic "Jessie's Girl" as Rick Springfield performed a cheeky, twangy new song "If Wishes Were Fishes" in which he asks Scarlett Johansson to call him and for people to stop referring to him as "Springsteen," among other pleas.

The singer recently came out with his debut novel, Magnificent Vibration — his second book after his 2010 memoir, Late, Late at Night.

Listen to the full episode of Off the Cuff with Springfield, and watch below for his musical performance.
