​The Fish Aren't Bitin' Today

This song is by David Allan Coe and appears on the album Compass Point (1979).

By david allan coe

Take the jib sail down boys take the jib sail down

Turn this ship around boys before we run aground

The fish aren't biting today boys fish aren't biting today

I'm gonna lay on my bunk and get drunk as a skunk

Cause the fish aren't biting today



There's six foot waves and my stomach craves

Some good old antiguan rum

I put some away for a rainy day

And the rain she's starting to come now



There's a northern wind and the lights are dim

Like a good fresh cuban cigar

I got me a hutch where there might be a bunch

In the captions pickle jar, so.
