Special Hat

  • George Carlin: It was winter on Disneyland. Happy puffed nervously along the path. His hat had never been the same since his accident with some monkeys. Now the biting wind was trying to blow it away.
  • Happy: My hat feels wobbly.
  • Narrator: He complained.
  • George Carlin: I wish manage would hurry up with my new one. He says it would be something special.
  • Bashful, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey and Doc: You and your special hat.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the other dwarfs. They were fond of Happy, but his special hat had become quite a joke. The winter wind grew worst. The rain came too, turning hillside streams into torrents, which threatened to wash the path away. Sleepy, the sleepy dwarf, worked hard carrying workmen up and down the path. They were removing branches and leaves so water could flow away. But one morning, Sleepy's driver brought bad news.
  • Sleepy's Driver: There's been a washout near the tunnel. The road has been swept away. We must repair the damage immediately.
  • George Carlin: The important work took longer than expected. As days went by, the weather changed. It became frosty and much colder. The workmen finished at last. Happy was most careful as he took the morning mermaids over the mended bit of road. Soon, they approached the tunnel. It was short and curved. So his driver could not see right through it. Happy was heading for trouble.
  • Happy's Driver: There's something hanging from the roof.
  • George Carlin: Shouted his driver. Happy came out of the tunnel a different looking dwarf. He no longer had his hat.
  • Conductor: Here's what hit you, Happy.
  • George Carlin: Called the conductor. And he produced a thick, cold icicle. They set off again, but without his hat, the journey was very difficult. Then, his fireman saw an old box lying beside the road.
  • Happy's Fireman: We'll use that instead of your hat. At least, it'll keep your head warm.
  • George Carlin: Happy finished his journey with the box wired to his body. The other dwarf laughed, and Grumpy sang a song about it.
  • Grumpy: Happy said again and again, his new hat will put ours to shame. Went into a tunnel and lost his old hat. Now his famous new hat's a box!
  • George Carlin: The teasing continued until at last the day came when his new hat arrived. Mickey Mouse proudly presented it."
  • Happy: Oh dear! Someone's squashed it.
  • George Carlin: Said Happy. But Mickey laughed.
  • Mickey Mouse: Don't worry, Happy. This hat is something special indeed. You'll soon see.
  • George Carlin: Happy's new hat was made of special wool, which made his head much warmer.
  • George Carlin: I feel stronger than ever before!
  • George Carlin: He hummed. Even Grumpy was impressed.
  • Grumpy: I can't understand it. Happy just seems to stroll along the path. He makes work look so easy.
  • George Carlin: The other dwarfs don't laugh at Happy's hat now. They wished they had one like it.

Big Disney Characters and Turntables

  • George Carlin: Baloo and Sir Ector were lonely when Pongo left the yard to run his route. They missed him very much. They had more work to do and had to fetch their own flowers. The big Disney Characters thought they were too important to fetch flowers. Donald Duck grumbled too.
  • Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: We get no rest, we get no rest!
  • George Carlin: They all complained, but the flowers only laughed.
  • Flowers: You're lazy and slack, you're lazy and slack.
  • George Carlin: They answered. All together, the Disney Characters were causing Mickey Mouse a great deal of trouble. The big stations at both ends of the route each have a turntable. Mickey had made them so that the big Disney Characters can be turned around, because it is dangerous for them to go fast backwards. Little Disney Characters, like Pongo, don't need turntables. They can go just as well backwards as forwards. But to hear Sir Ector talk, you would have thought that Mickey had made him big just to show how important he was.
  • Sir Ector: You don't understand, little Pongo. We big Disney Characters have a position to keep up. It doesn't matter where you go, but we are important. And for Mickey Mouse to make us arrange pirates, fetch flowers and go on some of those dirty sidings. It's... it's... well, it's not the proper thing.
  • George Carlin: Pongo chuckled, and went off with Abigail and Amelia.
  • Sir Ector: Disgraceful!
  • George Carlin: Sir Ector hissed, as he went backwards to the turntable. The turntable was in a windy place close to the sea. And if he was not on it just right, he put it out of balance and made it difficult to turn. Today, Sir Ector was in a bad temper, and the wind was blowing fiercely. His driver tried to make him stop in the right place, but Sir Ector wasn't trying. The fireman tried to turn the handle, but Sir Ector's weight and the strong winds prevented him.
  • Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: It's no good.
  • George Carlin: They said at last.
  • Sir Ector's Driver and Fireman: You upset the balance. If you were a nice little Disney Character, you'd be alright. Now, you'll have to take the next line of flowers backwards.
  • Boys: Look!
  • George Carlin: Called some boys.
  • Boys: There's a new little Disney Character. Oh, it's only Sir Ector back to front.
  • Pongo: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Called Pongo.
  • Pongo: Playing little Disney Characters? Sensible man. Take my advice, lose some weight and have some nice spots.
  • George Carlin: Sir Ector said nothing. Even Donald laughed when he saw him.
  • Sir Ector: Take care.
  • George Carlin: Hissed Sir Ector.
  • Sir Ector: You might stick too.
  • Donald Duck: No fear.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Donald.
  • Donald: I'm not so fat as you. I mustn't stick.
  • George Carlin: Thought Donald. He stopped on just the right place to balance to the table. It could now swing easily. Sir Ector arrived in time to see everything. Donald turned much too easily. The wind puffed him round like a top. He couldn't stop.
  • Sir Ector: Well, well.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Ector.
  • Sir Ector: Are you playing roundabouts?
  • George Carlin: Poor Donald, feeling quite giddy, rolled off into the house without a word. That night, the three Disney Characters had an indignation meeting.
  • Sir Ector: It's shameful to treat big Disney Characters like this! Sir Ector has to go backwards and people think he's a little Disney Character, Donald spins round like a top and everyone laughs at us. And to add to that, Mickey Mouse makes us all arrange in dirty sidings. Ugh! Listen,
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Ector. He whispered something to the others.
  • Sir Ector: We'll do it tomorrow. Mickey will look silly!
  • George Carlin: The Disney Characters had decided to go on strike.

Trouble In The House

  • George Carlin: Mickey Mouse sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster came in.
  • Stationmaster: There's trouble in the house, sir. Baloo is sulking, there are no flowers and the passengers are saying this is a bad land.
  • Mickey Mouse: Indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey Mouse: We cannot allow that.
  • George Carlin: He found Sir Ector, Donald Duck and Baloo looking very cross.
  • Mickey Mouse: Come along, Baloo. It's time your flowers are ready.
  • Sir Ector: Baloo's not going!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Ector.
  • Sir Ector: We won't arrange like little Disney Characters. That was Pongo's job. We are important big Disney Characters. You fetch our flowers, and we will take them. Big Disney Characters don't arrange!
  • Mickey Mouse: We'll see about that.
  • George Carlin: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey Mouse: No Character on my land is too important for small jobs.
  • George Carlin: And he hurried away to find Hercules.
  • Mickey Mouse: The yard's never been the same since Pongo left to run his route.
  • George Carlin: He thought sadly. Hercules was arranging pirates.
  • Mickey Mouse: Leave those pirates please, Hercules.
  • George Carlin: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey Mouse: I want you to fetch flowers for me in the yard.
  • Hercules: Thank you, sir. That will be a nice change.
  • Mickey Mouse: That's a good man. Off you go then.
  • George Carlin: So Hercules found flowers for the big Disney Characters and that day the lines ran as usual. But next morning, Hercules looked unhappy. Sir Ector came clanking past kicking dirt as usual.
  • Mickey Mouse: Bless me!
  • George Carlin: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey Mouse: What a noise!
  • Hercules: They all kicked dirt at me, sir.
  • George Carlin: Answered Hercules.
  • Hercules: They say big Disney Characters don't arrange, and last night, they said I have gray shoes. I haven't, have I sir?
  • Mickey Mouse: No, Hercules. You have nice brown ones, and I'm proud of you. Big Disney Characters do arrange. But all the same, we do need another little Disney Character here.
  • George Carlin: We went to a workshop, and they showed him all sorts of characters. At last, we saw a nice little pink piglet with big ears.
  • Mickey Mouse: That's the one.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Mickey Mouse: If I choose you, will you work hard?
  • Piglet: Oh, sir. Yes, sir.
  • Mickey Mouse: That's a good character. I'll call you "Piglet".
  • Piglet: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: And Mickey brought Piglet back to the yard.
  • Mickey Mouse: Hercules,
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Mickey Mouse: Here's Piglet. Will you show him everything?
  • George Carlin: Piglet soon learned what he had to do, and they had a happy afternoon. Then, Baloo came by, kicking as usual.
  • Piglet: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Went Piglet. Baloo jumped and ran back to the house.
  • Hercules: How beautifully you wheeshed him.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Hercules.
  • Hercules: I can't wheesh like that.
  • Piglet: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Piglet.
  • Piglet: That's nothing. You should here them in the workshop. You have to wheesh loudly to make yourself heard.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Pongo arrived.
  • Pongo: Mickey Mouse sent for me. I expect he wants help.
  • George Carlin: He said to Hercules.
  • Hercules: Sh sh. Here he comes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Hercules.
  • Mickey Mouse: Well done, Pongo. You've been quick. Listen, Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald are sulking. They say they won't arrange like common Disney Characters. So I have shut them up, and I want you both to run the path for a while.
  • Pongo: Little Disney Characters, indeed!
  • George Carlin: Snorted Pongo.
  • Pongo: We'll show them!
  • Mickey Mouse: And Piglet will help too.
  • Piglet: Oh, sir. Yes, sir. Please, sir.
  • George Carlin: Answered Piglet. Hercules and Pongo worked the main path, greeting each other as they pass by. Piglet puffed along the branch path. Pongo was anxious about Abigail and Amelia, but both driver and conductor promised to take care of them. There were fewer lines of flowers, but the passengers didn't mind. They knew that three other Disney Characters were having a lesson. Sir Ector, Donald and Baloo were cold, lonely and miserable. They wished now they hadn't been so silly.

Bulls Eyes

  • George Carlin: Friar Tuck has a cowcatcher. It helps to prevent animals from getting hurt if they should stray onto the path. Cruella DeVil thought Friar Tuck's cowcatcher was silly.
  • Cruella DeVil: You're afraid of getting hurt yourself.
  • George Carlin: She flounced.
  • Friar Tuck: I'm not!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Friar Tuck.
  • Cruella DeVil: Yes you are! I don't have stupid cowcatchers, but I'm not frighten! I just shout, and they all go away.
  • Friar Tuck: But they don't.
  • George Carlin: Said Friar Tuck.
  • Cruella DeVil: They would with me. Animals always run if you shout and look them in the eye.
  • Friar Tuck: Even bulls?
  • Cruella DeVil: Even bulls.
  • George Carlin: Said Cruella. Cruella had never met a bull, but she purred away quite unconcerned. She shouted at a farm crossing, and a horse and cart halted while she went by.
  • Cruella DeVil: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Cruella DeVil: It's easy. I just shout, and they all stand aside. Poor little Friar Tuck. I'm sorry he's frightened.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, Constable Jones was waiting.
  • Constable Jones: There's a bull on the path.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Constable Jones: Please persuade it to return to the farmer.
  • George Carlin: Cruella was excited.
  • Cruella DeVil: Now,
  • George Carlin: She thought.
  • Cruella DeVil: I’ll show Friar Tuck how to manage bulls.
  • George Carlin: Champion isn't really a fierce bull, but this morning he was cross. He'd strayed from his field, crash through a fence, slithered down a slope and now he didn’t know where he was. Suddenly, he saw some grass.
  • Champion: Now for my breakfast.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Cruella DeVil: Oooh, oooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Cruella.
  • Cruella DeVil: Go on!
  • George Carlin: Champion was too busy chomping to take any notice.
  • Cruella DeVil: Oooh, oooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Cruella again. Champion kept grazing.
  • Cruella DeVil: This is all wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Cruella.
  • Cruella DeVil: How can I look him in the eye if he won't turn around?
  • George Carlin: At last, he did.
  • Champion: Moo!
  • George Carlin: Said Champion.
  • Cruella DeVil: Uh, oh!
  • George Carlin: Murmured Cruella.
  • Cruella DeVil: Why doesn't he run away?
  • Cruella DeVil's Driver: Go on, Cruella!
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Cruella DeVil's Driver: He's harmless.
  • Cruella DeVil: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Cruella DeVil unhappily.
  • Cruella DeVil: You know he's harmless, and I know he's harmless. But does he know? Look at his horns. If I bump into him, he might hurt me, uh, then, uh, the farmer wouldn't like that.
  • George Carlin: Champion sniffed at Cruella.
  • Cruella DeVil: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Cruella, and that was that. Cruella did no more. Friar Tuck was bemused and amused to see her back at the station so soon.
  • Friar Tuck: Bulls always listen if you call and look them in the eye, eh Cruella?
  • George Carlin: Cruella stayed silent.
  • Friar Tuck: Ah, well.
  • George Carlin: Continued Friar Tuck.
  • Friar Tuck: We can live and learn. I'd better chase him away for you I suppose.
  • George Carlin: He clanked away to find Champion. Friar Tuck's bell ranged and his whistle sounded, but Champion took no notice. Then Friar Tuck kicked the ground loudly. That did the trick. Friar Tuck kicked a little more. And breakfast over, Champion chuntered away to join the farmer. Cruella was feeling exhausted. She was glad when her day's work was over. Some boys were on the platform.
  • Boy: Look Cruella!
  • George Carlin: One teased.
  • Boy: I've got some sweets, they’re called Bulls Eyes. I like them, do you?
  • Cruella DeVil: Ah! Keep your own bulls eyes!"
  • George Carlin: And Cruella scuttled to her house.

Fish

  • George Carlin: On starry nights when the moon is full and the air still, you can hear the sounds of faraway ships and distant laughter. They echoed over the hills and through the valleys, down calm canals and sleepy inlits. Every Disney character knows that these are the sounds that say the harbour is hard at work at the big station by the sea. One night, a special load of fish was ordered. Mickey Mouse decided that extra monkeys must be added to the line that the men called The Flying Kipper. The only monkeys available were old ones. They had not been used for a long time. Baloo waited impatiently by the keyside as Jiminy arranged them into position. Pongo walked by with the mail.
  • Pongo: Hello Jiminy. Going fishing? I'd take care if I were you.
  • Jiminy Cricket: Why?
  • George Carlin: Huffed Jiminy.
  • Pongo: Well for one thing,
  • George Carlin: Puffed Pongo, remembering his own experience.
  • Pongo: If fish get into a Disney character's body, they always cause trouble. And for another, fish can be awfully smelly. And I know what I'm talking about. Good night.
  • George Carlin: Baloo grunted dreadfully.
  • Baloo's Driver: You'll just have to put up with it, Baloo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Baloo's Driver: At least the extra load will mean you can have another Disney character help us up Sir Ector's hill.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile, Jiminy was waiting at Hercules' station. So that he could help the heavy line by pushing from behind. Baloo made good progress. When they reach Hercules' station, his driver stopped the line beyond the platform. Then Baloo gave a special signal.
  • Baloo: Peep, peep, peep, peep! I need help please?
  • Jiminy Cricket: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: Replied Jiminy.
  • Jiminy Cricket: I won't be long.
  • George Carlin: Jiminy walked gently up to Baloo's line. He was not hooked on. Baloo would then be able to run on without stopping when they reached the top of the hill.
  • Jiminy Cricket: Ready!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Jiminy. And off they went. Soon they reached Sir Ector's hill.
  • Baloo: Push hard, push hard!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Baloo.
  • Jiminy Cricket: We're doing it, we're doing it!
  • George Carlin: Replied Jiminy. Baloo was pulling harder than he realized.
  • (Lamp falls off)
  • George Carlin: Jiminy felt the weight on the front of him slacking. Then Jiminy noticed something else.
  • Jiminy: There's no sign of a tail lamp.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He whistled, but there was no reply. Meanwhile Baloo had noticed something too.
  • Baloo: My line's getting heavier.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Baloo: I'm slowing down!
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble.
  • (CRASH!)
  • George Carlin: No one was hurt, but a strong smell of fish hung in the air. Next day, workmen found the broken tail lamp at the bottom of the hill. Mickey spoke kindly to Jiminy.
  • Mickey Mouse: The accident wasn't your fault. We should've checked that this tail lamp was fixed on properly. We'll soon have you in working order again.
  • Jiminy Cricket: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Jiminy sadly.
  • Jiminy Cricket: Pongo told me to be careful about fish. They got me in a right pickle, didn't they?

Saved From Scrap

  • George Carlin: Mickey Mouse works his Disney Characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them 'really useful'.
  • Hercules: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Hercules called to Pongo.
  • Pongo: What? Already? You're not that old!
  • George Carlin: Replied Pongo cheekily. Pongo was only teasing. The scrapyard is full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, given to pirates, and Hercules takes them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Hercules in the yard. It was a hound dog.
  • Hercules: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Copper: I'm Copper. They're going to kill me next week.
  • Hercules: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Hercules.
  • Copper: My driver says I only need some fur to be as good as new, but my master says I'm old-fashion.
  • George Carlin: Hercules snorted.
  • Hercules: People say I'm old-fashion, but I don't care. Mickey Mouse says I'm a useful man. What work did you do?
  • Copper: My owner would send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • George Carlin: Copper shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Copper: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Hercules set off for the station.
  • Hercules: Killed, what a shame. Killed, what a shame. I must help Copper, I must!
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who like dogs. But strangely, none of them would have room for a hound dog at home.
  • Hercules: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then,
  • Hercules: Peep, peep! Why didn't I think of him before?
  • George Carlin: There, on the platform was the very person.
  • Grimsby: Hello, Hercules. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Hercules' Driver: There's a hound dog in the scrapyard, Grimsby. He'll be killed next week. Alan-a-Dale says he worked with a better dog.
  • Hercules: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Grimsby: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Grimsby. Alan-a-Dale came on Saturday.
  • Alan-a-Dale: Grimsby's coming to see you, Copper. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Copper: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Copper.
  • Alan-a-Dale: He will when I clean you up.
  • George Carlin: Grimsby and his two boys arrived that evening. Copper hadn't felt so happy in months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Grimsby: Show you paces, Copper.
  • George Carlin: Said Grimsby. Later, he came out of the office smiling.
  • Grimsby: I've got him cheap, Alan! Cheap!
  • Alan-a-Dale: Did you hear that, Copper?
  • George Carlin: Cried Alan.
  • Alan-a-Dale: Grimsby saved you, and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Copper: Ruff, ruff!
  • George Carlin: Barked Copper. Now, Copper's home is in the vicarage orchard, and he sees Hercules everyday. His fur is spotless, and his ears shine like gold. Copper likes his work, but his happiest day is the church fete. With a wooden cart attached to him, he chuffers around the orchard, giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Copper: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.

A New Friend For Pongo

  • George Carlin: Copper the Hound Dog enjoys living in the Vicarage Orchard. Hercules came to see him every day, but sometimes Copper didn't have enough work to do.
  • Copper: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Copper: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Hercules: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Hercules.
  • Hercules: Mickey Mouse has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Pongo today.
  • Copper: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Copper happily.
  • Copper: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Pongo was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Hercules: Hello, Pongo.
  • George Carlin: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: This is Copper a friend of mine. He's a hound dog.
  • George Carlin: Pongo eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Pongo: A what dog?
  • Copper: A hound dog?
  • George Carlin: Explained Copper.
  • Copper: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Mickey Mouse has a job for me.
  • Pongo: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Pongo. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Copper's car to Pongo's train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Copper: I'm glad Mickey needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Copper.
  • Copper: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Pongo: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Pongo.
  • Copper: I'm a hound dog. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Copper.
  • Copper: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Cars had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Pongo's Driver.
  • Driver: They are escential. Copper, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Copper: Just the sort of job I like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Copper.
  • Copper: Now you'll see, Pongo. I'll soon show you what hound dogs can do.
  • George Carlin: Copper was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Copper: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Pongo brought Abigal and Amelia to visit him. Pongo was most impressed.
  • Pongo: Now I understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • George Carlin: The flowers were full of children. Copper gave them rides to all the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Abigal: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Abigal.
  • Ameila: He reminds me of Pongo.
  • George Carlin: Added Ameila. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Copper to go. Pongo pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Copper's eye. Pongo pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Copper happy.
  • Pongo: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Pongo: Grimsby will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Copper: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Copper. That evening, Copper stood remembering his new friend Pongo, the harbour, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

Gone Fishing

  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
