Betcha' goin' fishin' all o' da' time
Baby, goin' fishin' too
Bet yo' life, yo' sweet wife
Catch mo' fish than you

Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
Here's a little tip that I would like to relate
Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
I'ma goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin
And my baby, goin' fishin' too

I went on down to my fav'rit fishin' hole
Baby, grab me a pole an' line
Throw my pole on in, caught a nine poun' catfish
Now ya' know I brought 'im home for suppertime

Provin' any fish bites if ya' got good bait
Here's a little tip that I would like to relate
Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
I'ma goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin
And my baby, goin' fishin' too

Baby, brother 'bout to run me outta my mind
Say, can I go fishin' wi' chu?
I took 'im on down to the fishin' hole
Now what do you think that he did do?
Pulled a great big fish out da' bottom o' da pond
Now he laughed and jumped 'cause he was real gone

Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
I'ma goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin
And my baby, goin' fishin' too

Put 'im in da' pot baby put 'im in da' pan
Honey cook 'im 'til he nice an' brown
Make a batch o' buttermilk, hoe cakes mama
An' ya' chew them thangs an' ya' chomp 'em on down

Singin' any fish bites if ya' got good bait
Here's a little tip that I would like to relate
Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
I'ma goin' fishin', yes I'm goin' fishin
And my baby, goin' fishin' too
Play da' blues

Betcha' goin' fishin' all o' da' time
Baby, goin' fishin' too
Bet yo' life, yo' sweet wife
She gonna catch mo' fish than you

Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
Oh, here's a little tip that I would like to relate
Many fish bites if ya' got good bait
I'ma goin, fishin', mama's goin' fishin
And the baby, goin' fishin' too
