The Lyrics

i got my fishin' license...met the guys
we'll catch some big fish, we all theorize
well, i rang the wildlife station...the lake was cold
we gave the tires some chains, and off we go

well, its a mighty long way over hill and dale
but the fishin' is hot, though, its cold as hell
and we're glad that we've come, cause the trout bite so well
that's the way some men fish

well, we hit the fishin' hole...and fed 'em lunch
i cast my line out far...i had a hunch
some men prefer sea trolling...but that's too tame
my five pound filament...its more of a game

now, its a mighty big fee for fishin' boats
but the marlin's pretty, though they'll get your goat
if you hook up with one, its so hard to control
that's the way some men fish

yeah, when the fightin' fish sway, near a sandy shoal
or you shiver on docks, where the big waves roll
in a lake in the mountains, or an ice shanty hole
that's the way some men fish

yeah, its delightful some say, to take a stroll
where the fish get caught, after fights so bold
and its fun for the young'uns, even more for the old
that's the way some men fish

yeah, well, they are bitin' today...at least, so i'm told
we must leave the city, cause the lake's our goal
we will travel afar, cause we're really out of control
that's the way some men fish

Heh heh, glad you didn't reveal to the ladies where us men REALLY go when we say we're going fishin' ... 555 lb-test.

DKTOS, Al...but it was a great read
Phil Alexander - November 10, 2004 - Report this comment
DKTOS, but would the following verse fit?
Yeah, those fishies they're hard to catch, that's right
We can't pull them out, so hard they do fight
So we'll blow up those bastards with, yup, dynamite
That's the way some men fish

Excellent, clever and funny take on the original title...and good story..I felt like I was fishing, when I read it...5's..But I guess that's the way some guys read.

Alvin, I like to trout fish in Colorado, and have frozen my ass off numerous times to pull in a 8-inch rainbow or brookie. This sums it up perfectly. 5's. And I hope you like the Flash movie cartoon at www.derangedcartoon.com. As a Red Sox fan, it's for people like yourself, John Barry, Johnny D and all the others that I hocked my soul to produce it.
