"Fish" as written by and Wynn Varble Chris Allen Wallin....
I took a short vacation
To the Gulf of Mexico
And everyday I’d see this fellow
With his tackle box and pole
And he’d fish
And he’d fish
All day long

So one day I went out walking
And when I got down to his spot
Me and him we got to talking
I said have you ever thought
About what you are going to do with your life
I said I’m about to share with you
My secret to success
So you can go make something of yourself

You can sell these fish you’re catching
You can buy yourself a boat
Hard work and dedication
And the next thing that you know
You reinvest your money
You’ll be captain of a fleet
You’ll be sitting pretty down on Easy Street
And you can do anything that you wish
He says, you mean fish?

His simple words of wisdom
Hit me right between the eyes
And it really got me thinking
About the way I live my life
'Cause I just work
And I work
All day long

So I asked myself a question
That I knew the answer to
Is success a second mortgage
On a big house with a pool
Or is it a chair
The salt in the air
Wetting the line

That advice that I tried to give him
To take him to the top
Was really nothing more than just a crock

You can sell these fish you’re catching
You can buy yourself a boat
Hard work and dedication
And the next thing you know
You reinvest your money
You’ll be captain of the fleet
You’ll be sitting pretty down on Easy Street
And you can do anything that you wish
He says, you mean fish?

So I went and bought some tackle
And a bucket full of bait
You can find me here most everyday
With my chair sitting there next to his
We just fish
Yeah, we just fish
Yeah fish, fish, fish, fish, fish
