Lyrics

  • Well I wish I was a catfish,
  • Swimming in the deep blue sea.
  • All you pretty womens,
  • Fishing after me,
  • Fishing after me.
  • Well, I went down to my baby's house,
  • And I sat down on the steps.
  • She said, "Come on in and have me,
  • My old man just left,
  • Just now left".
  • Well, there's two trains a runnin',
  • And there's not one, goin' my way.
  • One runs at midnight,
  • Other just for day.
  • Other just for day.
  • Other just for day.
  • Other just for day.
  • Other just for day.
  • Hey..........
  • Well, she's long,
  • And she's so tall,
  • Well, she shakes,
  • Like a willow tree.
  • They say she's no good,
  • She's alright with me.
  • Right with me.
  • Right with me.
  • Right with me.
  • Right with me.
  • Well I wish I was a catfish,
  • Swimming in the deep blue sea.
  • All you pretty women,
  • Swimmin' after me,
  • Swimmin' after me.
  • I wish I was your catfish.
