Went up on the hill about twelve o'clock
Reached right back and got me a pole
Went to the hardware and got me a hook
Attached that line right on that hook
Says you've been a-fishin' all the time
I'm a-goin' fishin' too

I bet your life, your lovin'wife
Can catch more fish than you
Any fish bite if you've got good bait
Here's a little somethin' I would like to relate
Any fish bite, you've got good bait
I'm a-goin' a-fishin', yes, I'm a-goin' a-fishin'
I'm a-goin' a-fishin' too

Looked down the river about one o'clock
Spied this catfish swimmin' around
I've got so hungry, didn't know what to do
I'm gonna get me a catfish too

Yes, you've been fishin' all the time
I'm a-goin' a-fishin' too
I bet your life your lovin' wife
Catch more fish than you
Any fish bite, got good bait
Here's a little somethin' I would like to relate
Any fish bite, you've got good bait
I'm a-goin' a-fishin', yes, I'm goin' a-fishin'
I'm a-goin' a-fishin' too

Put on your skillet, don't never mind your lead
Mama gonna cook 'em with the short'nin' bread
Says you been fishin' all the time
I'm a-goin a-fishin' too
I bet your life, your lovin' wife
Can catch more fish than you
Any fish bite, if you've got good bait
Here's a little somethin' I would like to relate
Any fish bite, you've got good bait
I'm a-goin' a-fishin', yes, I'm goin' a-fishin'
I'm a-goin' a-fishin' too
