The Lyrics

river bed at morning
where i pass the time
i fish along here
but, today's not excitin'
worms, i keep a-changin'
but, lately, they just stopped bitin'

but its good bait, baby
yeah, its good bait
and i really did try to shake it
fish like to hide, unspied
and i have tried
but the fish won't take it

i used to be so easy
findin' fish for stew
stew was never greasy
and i'd chew till i was through
now quantity is crappy
and i feel life is cruel

but its good bait, baby
yeah, its good bait
but the fish, i sought, didn't make it
"have they all died ?, i cried
i can't abide
and my fist, i shake it

there'll be good times again
but now i'm through
gonna get my gear together
since i've got no clue
yes, i'm sad, no fish was had
guess they sometimes snub you

but its good bait, baby
yeah, its good bait
when i caught a fish, i would bake it
sometimes, i'd fry those guys
since no fish died
there's no way to make it

well, its good bait...baby
its good bait...now darlin'
its good bait

hmm, I've never like fish, but now I'm thinking maybe it's because I've never chewed 'til I was through! - excellent, alvin, as usual - 555

Good bait but no good fishing, that sounds like pretty much every fishing trip I've been on. Great rhyming and parody.
