The Lyrics

A favorite band and a favorite spot; both just because they are different. Nuff said.
It's not the kind of hook,
It's not the fly, that you tie.
(Although there's something to them.)

It's not the way, you snare,
It's just that certain style;
(It could be that with you.)

Do you have, a worm n' corn with you?
Sometimes, I use cheese.
Like to spend my life just fishing.

It's not the take-up
And it's not the, wading pants,
(It's not the evening sky.)

It's more the way your flies
are acting, as you cast
(across the river's tide.)

If I had a tacklebox like you,
I'd set it down behind me.
I would spend my life just fishing.

It's not fish you catch
It's not the bait, that you use
(It must be something more)

It's a good line, so very strong
Fry a trout, so lovely
(Just don't thrown it in the floor.)

If I had a tacklebox like you,
I'd set it down behind me.
I would spend my life just fishing.

I really think that this should have been the seagulls big hit, it is way better than I ran. Great parody, good rhyme scheme, and very funny. 555 :]
