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’
