Fishing By The River

Once while fishing by the river
Our worms were waiting for a bite
The conversation led us to an Island
Where everything seemed just right

Our minds were so at ease
It's heaven to live by the sea
On the leeward side of the Island
Just the monkeys you and me

Seafood was plenty, both fish and shell
There were coconuts, mangos and bananas
We lived in a hut in the trees
On our heads we wore bandannas

Suddenly you had a bite
The fish leaped into the sky
This took us back to the river bank
With a fish, you and I

Well the moral to this story
Is that if you fish and dream
Don't confuse where you are
Or your meal will leave the scene
