Fishing In The Dark

Lazy yellow moon comin’ up tonight

Shinin’ through the trees

Crickets are singin’ and lightning bugs

Are floatin’ on the breeze

Baby get ready

Across the field where the creek turns back

By the old stump road

I’m gonna take you to a special place

That nobody knows

Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

Stayin’ the whole night through

Feels so good to be with you

Spring is almost over and the summer’s come

And the days are gettin’ long

Waited all winter for the time to be right

Just to take you along, baby get ready

And it don’t matter if we sit forever

And the fish don’t bite

Jump in the river and cool ourselves

From the heat of the night

Baby get ready, ooh

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

Stayin’ the whole night through

Feels so good to be with you

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

You and me going fishing in the dark

Lying on our backs and counting the stars

Where the cool grass grows

Down by the river in the full moon light

We’ll be fallin’ in love in the middle of the night

Just movin’ slow

The difference between singing and reading a song is reading you get the message of the song but if you if you sing it you don’t get the message. Reading the song is more powerful because you are reading lines and thinking about what is this artist is thinking about when he/she is writing this piece. And singing it you don’t get the meaning of the song because you don’t pause the song every 3 seconds to think about what the artist is writing about.
