Lyrics

Gone Fishing

Can't afford wasting time making money
I need some space, a hiding place, a get away
Want to find some peace of mind, somewhere sunny
Need a break, gonna take a holiday
So I'll load up the ford
My old life I'll leave behind
Wave goodbye to all my troubles
Out of sight is out of mind

Chorus:
Gone fishing ... Stuck a note outside my door
Gone fishing... Won't be hanging around no more
I'll be incommunicado,
Can't be reached ... no way no how
Gone fishing, gone fishing
Gone fishing... gone now

It's too easy losing track chasing rainbows
Trying to reach that illusive pot of gold
Funny though, I don't know where the time goes
But I know I'm far too young to feel this old
So I'm quitting my old job
The nine to five and all the stress
One last drink with all my buddies
Leave no forwarding address

Chorus:
Gone fishing ... Stuck a note outside my door
Gone fishing... Won't be hanging 'round no more
I'll be incommunicado,
Can't be reached ... no way no how
Gone fishing, gone fishing
Gone fishing... gone now


Bridge:
All my life searching for some meaning
Always looking out, not looking in
Think I'm due a little time for me now
Gonna cast a line and teach this worm to swim

Chorus:
Gone fishing ... Stuck a note outside my door
Gone fishing... Won't be hanging 'round no more
I'll be incommunicado,
Can't be reached ... no way no how
Gone fishing, gone fishing, gone fishing'...

Chorus/Outro:
Gone fishing ... Read the note outside my door
Gone fishing... I don't live here anymore
I'll be incommunicado,
Can't be reached ... no way no how
Gone fishing, (Adios, Au revoir)
Gone fishing, (Arrivederci, Aloha)
Gone fishing,
