Tim Hawkins – Cletus Take The Reel lyrics

I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat
On a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat
Well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade
It'd been a long hard day

Felt a tug on the line and I didn't pay attention it was spinning way to fast
Before I knew it I was staring at a ten pound shiny bass
When I tried to pull the fish inside I pulled a muscle in my upper thigh
I was so scared I threw my rod up in the air

Cletus take the reel
Take it from my hand
Cause I can't do it on my own
I'm letting go and I need your help bad
And if you don't my fish is gone
Oh Cletus take the reel


Oh I'm letting go
And I need your help bad
And if you don't my fish is gone
On this boat I'm on
Cletus take the reel
Oh take it take it from me

    This is a parody of the song "Jesus Take the Wheel". If you've heard the two songs you can clearly tell from the same tune and similar phrases like "well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade" and "fifty miles to go, she was running low on faith and gasoline" and "I was so scared, I threw my rod up in the air" and "she was so scared, she threw her hands up in the air" and "Jesus take the wheel take it from my hands cause I can't do this on my own, I'm letting go, so give me one more chance, save me from this road I'm on, Jesus take the wheel" and "Cletus, take the reel, take it from my hand, cause I can't do this on my own, I'm letting go, and I need your help fast, and if you don't my fish is gone, Cletus take the reel". So yeah. Clearly a parody but a good one. Tim Hawkins is awesome and to be perfectly honest comedians don't get much better.
