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
