It's True I tells Ya

IT'S TRUE I TELLS YA

It's great ta be fishin'
down Tunder Bay way
were da lake trouts
is bigger dan me
Dere be more fish in dere
dan da hairs on a bear
Baits yer hook hid bahind
a pine tree.

Dere's some so darn big
when day jumps in de air
and leaps at my bits a salami
Dat when dey falls back
on der backs with a whack
tips me boat in the
swirlin tsunami

Just one a doze fish
feeds da camp fer a week
Dat's why only one of us fishez
Den we sits roun da fire an sucks on da suds
and we use paper plates fer da dishes.
