    Lyrics

    You gone fishin' there's a sign upon your door
    Gone fishin' you ain't workin' anymore
    There's a hoe out in the sun
    Where you left the row half done
    You claim that hoe and ain't no fun
    But you ain't got no ambition

    Gone fishin' by a shady wady pool
    I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool
    I'd say no more work for mine
    On a door I'd hang a sign
    Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'

    You've gone fishin' there's a sign upon your door
    Gone fishin' you ain't workin' anymore
    Cows need milkin' in the barn but you just don't give a darn
    You just never seem to learn you ain't got no ambition
    Gone fishin' there's your hound dog by your side
    Gone fishin' fleas are bitin' at his side

    Folks just can't find you here
    'Cause old Alan Clinton
    Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'

    You've gone fishin'
    You don't worry about no waters
    Gone fishin' you don't bother with the chores
    There's your hoe out in the sun
    Where you left a row half done
    You claim that hoein' ain't no fun
    You ain't got no ambition
    Gone fishin'

    I would peace has never died
    All the word was by my side
    Folks just can't find me your in
    'Cause old Alan Clinton
    Gone fishin' instead of just a wishin'
