A Day of Rest and Fish

A Day of Rest and Fish

Sep 23, 2022, Fri — A day of rest and fish. Not exactly what you might be thinking. There’s no ing there, for one. And I don’t fish, for two. And I didn’t really rest either. But the day was relatively restful compared to the usual choreographed mayhem. And I treated myself to fish and chips. Actually drove south all the way to Anderson to get them. It was a NEED! 

Furthermore, as we all know, the important part of fishing aint the fish, it’s the fishing. One of my favorite little ditties. C used to play it, not so long ago, when my life had lots of music and songwriting in it. 

The Important Part of Fishing

Chorus
The important part of fishin’ ain’t the fish but the fishin’
The important part of lovin’ is the love
T he important part of doin’ most anything you’re doin’
Is doin’ it with all of your heart

Verse 1
If the fish don’t bite you still got the water
And the trees and the sky up above
And if your lover’s not with you don’t be sad you miss her
Be glad you miss someone so much

Chorus

Verse 2
If the fish don’t bite
You get some time for thinkin’
And your lover’s who you’re thinking about
And if your lover’s not with you
You get some time for fishin’
It’s amazing how it all works out

Chorus

Verse 3|
If the fish don’t bite
It really doesn’t matter
They’re just bigger the next time you go
And if your lover’s not with you
Just makes it that much sweeter
When you finally do come on home

Chorus

Tag
Do it now with all of your heart
Do it now with all of your heart

A day of rest and fish. Because the little man is not happy unless I repeat myself. And here is my internal link (sounds rather personal!) And the external link.
