Dolly Parton – Something Fishy lyrics

There must be something fishy going on
You said you were goin' on a fishin' trip with some old friend
You said that you'd be home tonight somewhere around ten
Well here it is, it's two o'clock and you're still not at home
I think there's something fishy goin' on

I think that I'm a sucker that's swallowing your line
I try to make myself believe that it's all in my mind
But you never asked me if I'd like to go along
So there must be something fishy goin' on

There's something fishy goin' on
On these fishin' trips you're goin' on
I'm gettin' tired of stayin' home alone

Some night when you come home and discover that I'm gone
You can bet there's something fishy goin' on

I guess some large-mouth bass left that lipstick on your shirt
I don't think you're a fisherman, honey
I think you're a flirt
Well if you're goin' fishin' then why don't you bring 'em home
I think there's something fishy goin' on


Yes, you can bet there's something fishy goin' on
