lyrics

I’m a jackfish girl and you’re a lake trout guy.
You like deep water beauties and I like
Shallow bottom feeders with teeth that break my leaders,
So it’ll never work out with you.

They’ve got me hook, line and sinker.
They’ve got me, those big stinkers.
They’ve got me cause
I’m not the biggest thinker.

I’m a jackfish girl and you’re a lake trout guy.
You like deep water beauties and I like
Stagnant swamp dwellers, those ugly old fellers,
So it’ll never work out with you.

What’s the point in trolling?
Those trout, always withholding,
Waiting down there in the cold
With a reputation to uphold.

I’m a jackfish girl and you’re a lake trout guy.
You like deep water beauties and I like
Scaly, slimey sluggers, those underbiting buggers,
So it’ll never work out with you.

It only takes a cast.
Pike are so easy to catch.
I may choke on the bones
But at least I’m not alone.

There’s plenty of fish in the sea,
But in the lake there’s only you and me.
Maybe if you can act real mean,
I can be your deep water queen.

Cause I’m a jackfish girl and you’re a lake trout guy.
You like deep water beauties and I like
You, cause you don’t catch and release me,
So maybe it’ll work out with you.
