  • He pulled up in his red Corvette
    Salmon shorts and a white v-neck
    I said wow you know how to dress down for a city guy

    We headed out to a spot on the lake
    A couple zedcos and a cup full of bait
    I could tell pretty fast
    He had more than just bass on his mind

    Oh I was fishing he was wishing
    We were kissing I was getting
    Madder than a hornet in an old coke can
    Getting closer sliding over
    Crowding up my casting shoulder
    Reaching out and tryna hold my reeling hand
    Saying I'm pretty saying he's in love
    And how it don't get any better than this

    I say yeah it could
    Boy if you would
    Shut up and fish
    Shut up and fish

    For a little while he calmed down and let up
    But then he went right back to pushing his luck
    And that line of mine
    Wasn't all I wanted to throw in, oh no

    Oh I was fishing he was wishing
    We were kissing I was getting
    Madder than a hornet in an old coke can
    Getting closer sliding over
    Crowding up my casting shoulder
    Reaching out and tryna hold my reeling hand
    Saying I'm pretty saying he's in love
    And how it don't get any better than this

    I say yeah it could
    Boy if you would
    Shut up and fish

    I finally had all of him that I could take
    So I gave him a cold shower in the lake

    What can I say?

    I was fishing he was wishing
    We were kissing I was getting
    Madder than a hornet in an old coke can
    Getting closer sliding over
    Playing captain Casanova
    Reaching out and tryna hold my reeling hand
    Saying I'm pretty saying he's in love
    And how it don't get any better than this

    I said yeah it could
    Boy if you would
    Shut up and fish

    Just a little push
    'Cause he couldn't just
    Shut up and fish
