Gone Fishing

Can’t afford wasting time making money
I need some space, a hiding place, a get away
Want to find peace of mind, somewhere sunny
Need a break, gonna take a holiday
So I’ll pack up all my bags
Board up the house, it’s such a mess
Say goodbye to my old 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 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 went
But I know I’m too young to feel this old
So I’m loading up the dodge
All I don’t need I’ve left behind behind
Waved 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 ‘round no more
I’ll be incommunicado,
Can’t be reached … no way no how
Gone fishing, gone fishing … gone now

Bridge:
Now I’ve spent my whole life searching
Just looking out, not looking in
Gonna take some time for me now
Gonna 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 … I’ve gone fishing’
Gone fishing … Read the note outside my door
Gone fishing… I don’t live here anymore
I am incommunicado,
Can’t be reached … no way no how
Gone fishing, Gone fishing,
Adios, Au revoir
Gone fishing,
Arrivederci, Aloha
Gone fishing
See you later … alligator
Gone fishing, gone fishing,
Gone fishing…Ciao.
