Fish Weren't Bitin'

  • My baby’d been wishing
    That I’d take her fishing
    So we waited on the perfect day
    Hitched up my old john boat
    To see if it would still float
    Should’ve seen the smile on her face
    I found a little cove, dropped the lines, to try our luck
    Before too long she said it’s starting to heat up

    So she took off her shirt
    Said I’ll get a little sun
    Handed me the Coppertone
    Man I had me some fun
    I rubbed it in real good, and I didn’t miss a spot
    And I got to see that little pink bikini top
    Cause the fish weren’t bitin’

    She said I’ll lay out a little
    But if we get a nibble
    I want to be the one to reel him in
    I said “baby you got it”
    We’ll tell ‘em all you caught it
    But you’re getting some red there on your skin
    So I rubbed her down again, she said baby that feels nice
    Won’t you lay right here beside me, she didn’t have to ask me twice

    I kissed her lips
    As the sun went down
    We lost track of time
    As we floated around
    That john boat rocked out there in the dark
    She still claims I stole her heart
    Cause the fish weren’t bitin’

    We still laugh about that little fishing trip we took
    To this day, she don’t know, I didn’t bait the hook

    You know I love to catch ‘em, but brother I won’t lie
    I had the best day of my life
    Cause the fish weren’t bitin’
    No the fish weren’t bitin’ Writer/s: JIMMY YEARY, MARTY DODSON
