The Lyrics

i used to be out anglin', constantly
now i say, the scene is borin' me
these days, i'm just content to stay at home
no more fish will perish, cause i just don't want to go

twas my hobby !
i'd bring my rod and reel to the riverside
catchin' the beasts
i'd see where the fat carp hide
unwind, all on my own, in water deep
it time i put my ol' rod down for keeps

burned out on fishin'
all the fish can stay alive
used to be, i'd wake at seven
to the water, i would fly
burned out on fishin'
turnin' down the kind of jive
all those fish can keep on livin'
done all i need...i'll stay inside

out on the lake
the fish are out today
my friends cried when they came
i turned 'em away
and no more will i do
though the fish may swarm
i've turned turned turned turned down
my fishin' pals

twas my hobby !
i'd bring my rod and reel to the riverside
catchin' the beasts
i'd see where the fat carp hide
unwind, all on my own, in water deep
it time i put my ol' rod down for keeps


burned out on fishin'
all the fish can stay alive
used to be, i'd wake at seven
to the water, i would fly
burned out on fishin'
turnin' down the kind of jive
all those fish can keep on livin'
done all i need...i'll stay inside

If Sir Elton baits his hook with Viagra and Cialis and Levitra, he might not have to put his rod down for keeps. 5-5-5, good job, Alvin.
