    He's lazy, but he's lovable, we know him like a book
    Anytime he can't be found, we know just where to look:

    Gone fishin', there's a sign upon his door
    Gone fishin', he ain't workin' anymore
    There's his hoe out in the sun where he left a row half done
    He said "hoein' ain't no fun", he ain't got no ambition
    Gone fishin' by a shady wady pool
    I'm wishin' I could be that kinda fool
    I'd say no more work for mine on my door I'd hang a sign
    Gone fishin' Instead of just a wishin'

    Gone fishin'. . .see him snoozin' by a brook
    Gone fishin'. . .didn't even bait his hook
    There's his hound dog by his side fleas are bitin' at his hide
    He won't scratch 'em he's to tired he ain't got no ambition
    Gone fishin'. . .learnin' fishin' worms to swim
    I'm wishin. . .he wuz me and I wuz him
    Wish I had a plane to fly here's what I'd write in the sky
    Gone' fishin'. . .instead of jest awishin'

    Gone fishin'. . . he don't worry 'bout no wars
    Gone fishin'. . .left his wife to do the chores
    Cows need milkin' in the barn but he jest don't give a darn
    See his fishin' pole is gone he's on a secret mission
    Gone fishin'. . .out where peace has never died
    I'm wishin'. . .all the world was by his side
    Then our guns we'd throw away grab a fishin' pole and say
