A Bad Day's Fishing

This song is by Slim Dusty and appears on the album Looking Forward Looking Back (2000).

Well the fish ain't bitin' but the 'skeeters are,
Little buggers gone hidin', they don't wanna get caught,
Too nice a day to be dangle on the end of a line,
But a bad days fishin' beats a good days work every time.
Little ole worm around a big ole hook,
He don't mind the water in this babbling brook,
Just swimmin' around an' havin' a flammin' good time,
He knows a bad days fishin' beats a good days work every time.
Well a bad days fishin' ain't a bad day at all,
Just as long as you're a-wettin' the line,
When the man in the boat is a tallying up,
He gonna look down at you and you'll smile
Hell say (A bad days fishing is good for your soul,
So I decided to the end of your life.)
And a bad days fishin' beats a good days work every time.
Well the fish swim by and say to the worm,
Tell the fool up there, he's a-gonna get burned.
Sleeping in the sun like that mate, he's gonna fry,
He knows a bad days fishin' beats a good day's work every time."
Well a bad days fishin' ain't a bad day at all,
Just as long as you're a-wettin' the line,
When the man in the boat is a tallying up,
He gonna look down at you and you'll smile
Hell say (A bad days fishing is good for your soul,
So I decided to the end of your life.)
Hey! a bad day's fishin' beats a good days work every time.
Well a bad days fishin' ain't a bad day at all,
Just as long as you're a-wettin' the line,
When the man in the boat is a tallying up,
He gonna look down at you and you'll smile
Hell say (A bad days fishing is good for your soul,
So I decided to the end of your life.)
And a bad days fishin' beats a good days work,
And a bad days fishin' beats a good days work,
And a bad days fishin' beats a good days work every time.
