The Lyrics

this is about some of the veterans of B.A.S.S. Masters
It was all I could do to reel that bass in
Sometimes "hogs" are very hard to tame
But I make a good livin' out of fishin'
So I hauled that big bass in, just the same

You don't have to call me Roland Martin
And you don't have to call me ole Bill Dance
And you don't have to call out, hey Hank Parker, anymore
But you might give our sport a passing glance

And I'll fish out here as long as they will let me
I'll use my Coleman lantern for some light
You don't have to call me home for dinner
Babe I think I got another bite

I don't drink hard liquor when I'm fishin
The tournaments are really not a game
This bass boat cost a bundle, and my pickup truck
So I'm out fishin even when it rains

And I'll fish out here as long as they will let me
I sure don't mind fishin in the rain
And you don't have to call me Roland Martin
But every good bass angler
Every real fine bass angler
Every good bass angler knows my name
