If I had my druthers I'd go fishin'
Find myself a lake and a lazy day
If I had my druthers I'd quit wishin'
Get off the old caboose get on my way.

Give me whole lots of laughter
Great big barrels of fun
Nightime full of romance
Daytime full of fun

If I had my druthers I'd go flyin' - oooh
Lookin' for the things I'd like to see - yeah
If I had my druthers I'd be tryin' tryin'
The only way to be what I can be

Give me somebody to love me
Make me feel like the only one
Something thst's worth doing Lord
I feel good when it's well done.

If I had my druthers I'd go sailin' - yes I would
Catch me campin' out on the open sea
If I had my druthers I'd be singin'
Just how good this good life feels to me - feels so good

You just need somesome to talk to
Something you can share
You don't need no reason for livin' Lord
It's already there - yes it is - oooh oooh

It makes me giggle
I can't sit down

I'm goin' fishin'!!!
