The Lyrics

VERSE 1:
when I was young I knew everything
and she a girl who rarely ever took advice
now I'm guilt stricken sobbing with my head on the floor
stop a trout's breath and a shoe full of ice (no)

CHORUS:

I can't be held responsible
'cause she was fishing in the wrong place
I won't be held responsible
she went fishing in the first place
for the life of me, I cannot remember
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compro-mise
for the life of me, I cannot believe
we'd ever fish for these we were merely fishermen

VERSE 2:
my best friend took a week's vacation to fish for
his girl took a week's worth of power bait and worms
and now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
thinks about it now and how he never really wept, he says

CHORUS:

I can't be held responsible
'cause she was fishing in the wrong place
I won't be held responsible
she went fishing in the first place
for the life of me, I cannot remember
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compro-mise
for the life of me, I cannot believe
we'd ever fish for these we were merely fishermen

VERSE 3:
we've tried to wash our hands of all of this
we never talk of our lacking fishing ships
and how we\'re guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
we fell through the ice, when we tried not to slip, we'd say
