The Lyrics

More or less a true story...
When you go up to the lake
Whatcha gonna do?
Sit down and watch TV
Or are you trying something new?
When you cast your line
With nature you're one
Though you're from the city
It might be lots of fun

'Cause you're rugged, you are urban
How hard could it be to do?
Oh, you're going fishin'

The water feels good
On your toes and feet as well
But the sun is beating down,
Out here it is hot as hell

You reach into your cooler
You find your beer is done
This game is aggravating
Who the hell would consider this fun?
You've sat for seven hours
Without a single bite
You wonder if this state will let you
Go fishing with dynamite

They said it's fun, and you bought it
Hook, line and the sinker too!
Oh, you're going fishin'

Well you caught yourself a fish
Six inches at most
Now your own great reward
Is to let that fishy go

You can't cook it, you can clean it
Enjoy your sunburn!
Oh, you're going fishin'

Reeled the whole line back in
Broke the pole in two
You're driving to the city
Go back to your PS2

And your desktop, and your iPod
Bush can drain all the lakes, too
Oh, you just went fishin'
Oh, you just went fishin'...
