Fishin' in the Dark

Do you ever listen to a song that just makes you happy?

I'm sitting here, on a Saturday night, listening to some songs on my Ipod - and on comes "Fishin' in the Dark" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

I don't know what it is about this song - but I smile every time I hear it. Maybe it's the "bouncy" beat - or the lyrics - but something just makes me smile. And that's a good thing.

So, sing along with me!

Lazy yellow moon comin up tonite,
Shinin thru 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 ole stump road
Im gonna take you to a special place that nobody knows
Baby get ready.....ooooooooooo

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,
Well be fallin in love in the middle of the night
Just movin slow...

Stayin the whole night thru, feels so good to be with you...

Spring is almost over and the summers 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 dont matter if we sit forever and the fish dont bite
Jump in the river and cool ourselves from the heat of the night
Baby get ready.....ooooooooooo.

You and me going fishin in the dark!

Now - aren't you smiling??!!
