"Gone Fishin'"

I couldn't help but think I somehow drew inspiration from Big Russ Thompson on Honey I Shrunk the Kids. But sometimes style is like that. The launching pad for an idea for your ensemble some days is more costume than anything. Saying to yourself, "Today I'd like to be..."

Louis Armstrong x Gone Fishin'.

You gone fishin' (Well how you know?)
Well there's a sign upon your door (Uh-huh)
Gone fishin' (I'm real gone man)
You ain't workin' anymore (Could be)
There's your hoe out in the sun
Where you left a row half done
You claim that hoein' ain't no fun (But I can prove it)
You ain't got no ambition
Gone fishin' by a shady-wady pool (Shangri-la, really la)
I'm wishin' I could be that kind of fool (Should I twist your arm?)
I'd say no more work for mine (Welcome to the club)
On my door I'd hang a sign
Gone fishin' instead of just a-wishin'
