lyrics

hi-ho, fishin' all day!

brother got a goldfish put him in a little dish
brother got a goldfish put him in a little dish
turned into a trash fish, swimmin' in the big ditch

trash fish, trash fish swimmin' in the big ditch
trash fish, trash fish swimmin' in the big ditch
all the way from Jericho, to the Gulf of Mexico

fishin' all day in the Matagorda Bay
fishin' all day in the Matagorda Bay
well I caught me a big one, but I let him get away

alligator gar they call him a trash fish
alligator gar they call him a trash fish
if you had a last wish swimmin' in the big ditch

trash fish trash fish jammin' up the waterway
trash fish trash fish jammin' up the waterway
messin' with my fishing line suckin' up the bottom slime

trash fish trash fish jammin' up the waterway
trash fish trash fish jammin' up the waterway
catch him where the blue cat yellow cat had his day

you got your live bait and your artificial lure
you got your live bait and your artificial lure
catch him in the river catch him in the sewer

fishin' all day and i ain't got a bite
fishin' all day and i ain't got a bite
but you know i don't mind, i do it all the time
