Well now take down your fishin' pole
And meet me at the fishin' hole
We may not get a bite all day
But don't you rush away
What a great place to rest your bones
And mighty fine for skippin' stones
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade
A-settin' in the shade
Whether it's hot
Whether it's cool
Ohhh, what a spot
For whistlin' like a fool
What a fine day to take a stroll
And wander by the fishin' hole
I can't think of a better way
To pass the time of day
Here's a hint: the tune was only whistled on the show, never sung.
Answer: The Andy Griffith Show <-- drag mouse over to reveal answer.
Following Don the Lamplighter's lead here is another partial set of lyrics for a theme song most didn't know had words:
We chased lady luck till we finally struck (title)
With a gun and a rope and a hat full of hope,
planted a family tree.
We got hold of a pot full of gold, (title)
With a horse and a saddle, and a range full of cattle,
how rich can a fellow be?
