Nathan Andy Griffith Show Theme (10) Lyr Add: THE FISHIN' HOLE (Everett Sloane) 04 May 98


I never knew there were lyrics until Dean sent me a copy (Thanks, Dean!). What a great list this is!

Anyway, here they are (Lyrics by Everett Sloane).

Well, now, take down your fishin' pole
and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
We may not get a bite all day,
but don't you rush away.
What a great place to rest your bones
and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade
a-settin' in the shade.
Whether it's hot, Whether it's cool,
Oh, what a spot for whistlin' like a fool,
What fine day to take a stroll
and wander by the Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way
to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll
when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me and Old Dog Trey,
to doodle time away,
If we don't hook a perch or bass,
we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw,
and maybe set and jaw.
Hangin' around Takin' our ease,
Watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.
Come on, take down your fishin' pole
and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way
to pass the time away.
