Fishing Where The Fish Are

Things going wrong there, Sparky? Ever think you might be making the same mistakes over and over?
Welcome to the club. But a bartender told me "Look, you don't build a house on sand. You don't tie a stone to a kite. If you want to catch fish, you got to go fishing where the fish are!"

 

Well I was feeling down cause I was broke again
I took a look around to figure where I've been
I read some magazines, I watch some interviews
And then my old bartender says "Son,
What you got to do"

Is go fishing where the fish are
Just go fishing where the fish are
Why do you drop your pole
Into an empty hole
Just go fishing where the fish are

You may be looking for money, you may be looking for fame
But you're trying to get uptown on a downtown train
Now you've got the experience, and you've got all the facts
But you don't seem to notice that you're on the wrong track

Is go fishing where the fish are
Just go fishing where the fish are
Why do you drop your pole
Into an empty hole
Just go fishing where the fish are

Fishing where the fish are
Fishing where the fish are
Fishing where the fish are
Fishing where the fish are
Oh, oh,
Fishing where the fish are

You've been running and racing, you've been tearing around
And you don't stop to notice if your feets on the ground
You've watching the sky studyin' every cloud
But what you really want is lying right on the ground

Just go fishing where the fish are
Just go fishing where the fish are
Why do you drop your pole
Into an empty hole
Just go fishing where the fish are
