Sometimes it's nice to take some time out
Do what you really want to do.
Just to relax and let the world fly by you.
Forget your worries, no need to hurry.
Just leave a sign to say...


Gone fishing, gone fishing.
It's a sunny old day and you're on your way
Gone fishing.
Gone fishing, Gone fishing.
It's a sunny old day and you're on your way.
Why don't we all go fishing?
You drop your line down to the river
Waiting to see what you can find.
Whatever life has to offer you.
You know you'll take it, stand up and face it
Smiling along the way...


There's nothing better on a sunny day
When all your work is done.
Throw down your line, settle down.
Surprise, surprise, look what you've found...


It's a sunny old day and you're on your way...
Gone fishing!
