Grand Fishing Song



Grand Fishing Song

Aah, went out fishing today
Hoped to catch me my prey
Eat it up without delay, oh yay

Aah, brought me pole to the lake
Tried to stay all awake
Eating fine fresh-baked cake, oh yay

Perch and dace were jumping around
So I snuck to the shore without making a sound
Threw me lure in the waters deep
Then I tried me best not to fall asleep

Aah, as the sun shone on me
I wanted many mugs of tea
And me stomach did agree, oh yay

Aah, after many a meal
So much better I did feel
Cast me pole with newfound zeal, oh yay oh yay oh yay

Perch and dace were jumping around
So I snuck to the shore without making a sound
Threw me lure in the waters deep
Then I tried me best not to fall asleep

But no fish bit on me lure, and soon I snoozed down by the shore
Pleasant dreams of biscuits sweet, the kind of which I soon would eat
Happy dreams that came to an end
When me pole started shake and creak and bend

Aah, had a fish on the hook
Wilder than a young Took
Pulling me towards the water, me legs shook

Aah, I did curse and yell
But the fish said farewell
In the water I fell, oh nay

I splashed around and screamed fer help
Then I felt a tug and I heard a yelp
A hobbit laughed to my chagrin
Used me very own pole to reel me in
