Gaelic Storm - Fish And Get Fat lyrics

I keep it goin' day by day,
Drink my coffee, smile and say,
"Doin' fine... how's it treatin' you?"
My smile comes from a movie scene,
Words from Sunday's magazine,
Who I am, I only wish I knew.

I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:
Buy one now and get another free!

I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:
Buy one now and get another free!

I'm genuine synthetic fake, lock me up and let me bake,
Turn me over now, I think I'm done,
Sprinkle me with MSG, a word or two of sympathy,
Slap me 'round and throw me in a bun!
I keep it goin' day by day,
Drink my coffee, smile and say,
"Doin' fine... how's it treatin' you?"
My smile comes from a movie scene,
Words from Sunday's magazine,
Who I am, I only wish I knew.

I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:
Buy one now and get another free!

I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.

I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
City's closin' in on me,
The windows to my soul are sad reflections of a billboard ad:

River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean, carry me away.
River river, wash me clean... 'cause I can't stand another lousy day!
I move my mouth, the words come out,
First a whisper, then a shout,
No one hears a thing I have to say,
The sell-by date stamped on my neck is out of date, but what the heck
No one's buying anything today!

I wanna fish and get fat, I'm done with all of that!
I wanna fish and get fat... I ain't comin' back!
I'm movin' backward stride by stride, I'm sliced I'm diced, I'm crispy fried.
