The Walleye Hole

Album: Googolplex & Other Numbers

Lyrics

Okay, you’re goin’ fishin’ at the lake cabin with Grandpa! Right after breakfast you’re headin’ for a deep spot off the point Grandpa calls “The Walleye Hole.” No motor! “Scares the fish!” That’s what Grandpa says.

v1) You get a line and I’ll get a pole, honey You get a line and I’ll get a pole, babe You get a line and I’ll get a pole We’ll row out to that walleye hole Honey, sugar baby, mine

Get on your life jacket! Cinch it up tight! Now, let’s pull on those oars. Okay here we are at the Walleye Hole. Time to drop anchor and try our luck.

v2) What kinda bait do you like best, honey What kinda bait do you like best, babe What kind of bait do you like best Gotta use what works and leave the rest Honey, sugar baby, mine

Gotta be patient! The lake’s like glass and the mornin’ sun’s just peekin’ up over the trees. Keep watching that bobber!

v3) Bleev you got a nibble on your bait, honey Bleev you got a nibble on your bait, babe Bleev you got a nibble on your bait Better hook it quick or it’s too late Honey, sugar baby, mine

Whoa! This one’s big! Feels like you hooked a submarine! Reel it in now! Zzzz, Zzzz...

v4) Scoop ‘im up quick with the landin’ net, honey Scoop ‘im up quick with the landin’ net, babe Scoop ‘im up quick with the landin’ net Is it a keeper? Ho - ho, you bet! Honey, sugar baby, mine

Hold that fish up while Grandpa takes a picture of you! That one’s going in the family scrapbook for sure!

v5) Tonight gonna have a big fish fry, honey Tonight gonna have a big fish fry, babe Tonight gonna have a big fish fry Invite your friends for fresh walleye Honey, sugar baby, mine

v6) Then out come the fiddle and the banjo, too, honey Out come the fiddle and the banjo, too, babe Out come the fiddle and the banjo, too Gonna sing and dance the whole night through Honey, sugar baby, mine

v7) T’morrow mornin’ you get a line, honey T’morrow mornin’ I’ll get a pole, babe You get a line and I’ll get a pole We’ll row out to that Walleye hole Honey, sugar baby, mine
