The Lyrics

My work in construction as an electrician has exposed me to the crassmen humour of plumbers. So I always tease them about fishing for "Brown Trout". So I thought it would make a great parody. Remember: if you catch a brown trout common decency says that you should release it back into its natural habbitat. Hope you enjoy the brown plate special that I'm serving . FYI/TMI Usually roots are what cause plumbing back ups. But when somebody releases a fairly large brown trout it get's stopped by the roots.
When you're at home and pipe are draining too slowly
You can blame your woes - Brown Trout
Boy it's a bummer but your calls to the plumber's
Seemed to help
You 'spose - Brown Trout.
Just lookin' at the the toliet and the havoc can be shitty
Linger on the sidewalk where the gentle breeze smells pretty
Where can you poop?
Your pipes smell less riper there
you can repent all your grumbles
Begin all your prayers
It's those - Brown Trout
Pipes can be plugged when there's - Brown Trout
No boneless fish hors' derves - Brown Trout
Plumber's are fishing for... Eeeeew! - Brown Trout

Don't hang around and let your plumbing confound you
There are fishing pros - Brown Trout.
Maybe you know some good ole plumbers to call who have taylored clothes (crack kills) - Brown Trout
Just buy in to the logic of domestic problem tutors
You'll be laughin' with 'em too after the pipes are rootered. flushing again.
Your life is much lighter shared
You can't just fix all your plumbing
Forget all those cares
And those - Brown Trout
Where all the fish are swished - Brown Trout
waiting for you to wipe - Brown Trout
you gonna be alright now? ( you look a little flushed)
Brown Trout
Brown Trout
Brown Trout

And you may find some plumber kind to help and twitterpate you
Someone who will lust for you
and needs a magic wand to prod him along.
So Baby he'll see you where?
You can pay for all the charges
Forget all the fares
so go - downtown
Things will be great when you're - downtown
don't pay a plumber for - downtown
Hairything is waiting for you -
downtown
downtown
downtown
downtown.
