Gone Fishin' Lyrics

I'll tell you why I can't find you

Every time I go out to your place

You gone fishin' (well how you know)

Well there's a sign upon your door (uh-huh)

Gone fishin' (I'm real gone man)


You ain't workin' anymore (could be)

There's your hoe out in the sun


Where you left a row half done


You claim that hoein' ain't no fun (well I can prove it)

You ain't got no ambition


Gone fishin' by a shady wady pool (shangrila really la)


I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool (should I twist your arm )

I'd say no more work for mine (welcome to the club)

On my door I'd hang a sign


Gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'


Papa bing (yeah louis)

I stopped by your place a time or two lately

And you aren't home either


Well I'm a busy man louis I got a lotta deals cookin'

I was probably tied up at the studio


You weren't tied up you dog

You was just plain old

Gone fishin' (bah-boo-bah-boo-bah-boo-bah-boo-bah)

There's a sign upon your door (pops don't blab it around will you )

Gone fishin' (keep it shady I got me a big one staked out)

Mmm you ain't workin' anymore (I don't have to work I got me a piece of gary)

Cows need milkin' in the barn (I have the twins on that detail they each take a side)

But you just don't give a darn (give 'em four bits a cow and hand lotion)

You just never seem to learn (man you taught me)

You ain't got no ambition (you're convincin' me)

Gone fishin' (bah-boo-dah-do-dah-do-dah-do)

Got your hound dog by your side (that's old cindy-lou goin' with me)

Gone fishin' (mmm-hmm-hmm-hmm-hmm)

Fleas are bitin' at his hide (get away from me boy you bother me)

Mmm folks won't find us now because


Mister satch and mister cros

We gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'




Oh yeah
