I got no line, I got no pole
I just brought time to this old fishing hole
The sky is blue, the waterís clear
I got all I need right here
Thereís a breeze blowing by
A little shade, a little sun
Iíve got nothing to do
And Iím not leaving till Iím done

Thereís a blue cat on the bottom
And a bullfrog on the bank
I just pitched a pretty pebble
And watched the ripples while it sank
Hear the crickets in the meadow
Sing the song theyíve always sung
Iíve got nothing to do
And Iím not leaving till Iím done
   Well Iím not leaving till Iím done
   Iím not leaving till Iím through
   Slowing down this crazy life
   For just a day or two
   Yeah, and I think Iíll hang right here
   And watch the river run
   Iíve got nothing to do
   And Iím not leaving till Iím done
Thereís a ruckus down river
And I look up to see the sight
Mama duck, sheís gathering up
Her ducklings for the night
And twilight is gathering too
And Iíve only just begun
Iíve got nothing to do
And Iím not leaving till Iím done
Well Iím not leaving till Iím done
   Iím not leaving till Iím through
   Slowing down this crazy life
   For just a day or two
   Yeah, and I think Iíll hang right here
   And watch the river run
   Iíve got nothing to do
   And Iím not leaving till Iím done
   Iíve got nothing to do
   And Iím not leaving till Iím done
