You know I wished I was a catfish
Swimmin' in that deep blue sea
I'd have all the good lookin' women there boy
Fishin' after me, fishin' after me, oh
I went down to my baby's house
She said, “Lightnin', come on in
Ain't nobody here with me, good Lord
You know, I'm your friend”
You know, I went down to my baby's house
Lord, I sat down on them steps
She said, “Come on, in this house, Lightnin'
Husband just now left"
My husband just now left
Show enough, I'm by myself
He just now left
You know, I went down to the river
Started jump overboard and drown
I thought about that little mama
Turned around now
Walkin' back to town
Back to town
Back to town
Show enough, back to town
You know, I wish I was a catfish
Swimmin', Lord in that deep blue sea
I'd have all the good lookin' womens
Fishin' after me, fishin' after me
Show enough
Ain't lyin'
Hmm, hmm
