lyrics

There've been a lot of country songs about fishing
But not a lot of country songs about fish
So I thought I'd write one, 'cause I am one
At least that's how I felt when you reeled me in

You dropped your line into my peaceful waters
Turned my whole world upside down
How am I supposed to just keep swimming
With this dadgum hook stuck in my mouth

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her

You're an angler and a sportsman
And I am just a helpless northern pike
You mounted me, made me into a trophy
When I'd even rather be a trophy wife

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her

At least you threw me back, you tried to make it right
This hole in my mouth will haunt me the rest of my life

I'm a humble fish in love, can't believe this feeling's real
I'm a bluegill or a sunfish and I'm head over eels
But you never felt the same, fishing's just your kind of game
You said hook, line, and sinker, I hardly know her
