Stink Bait

Words and Music by Alan Harkrader

About the Song

Linda Mottley and I had a conversation about Stink Bait. Her mom wouldn't let her dad back in the house after he'd been fishing with it. I can remember the effect of the smell from when I was a kid.

Lyrics

I'm goin fishin got a lead weight. I'm goin fishin got a bobber too
I done oiled my rig and changed my line I can catch a bigger fish now in half the time
But the main reason why I can't wait, I got stink bait

I'm goin fishin got a new pole There's some big ones waitin in that old fishin' hole
I got wadin boots that go hip high
Got my fishin hat to shade the sun from my eye
But the main reason why I can't wait, I got stink bait

I got stink bait ooee, it'll tip the scales on your olfactory
I got stink bait, it'll burn your eyes
Make you wish your nose was half it's size

SOLO
When I catch 'em all I'm gonna haul 'em home
Call my hungry buddies on the telephone
Tell 'em that I'm havin a fish fry, that I caught all the big ones in the lake
They'll know I'm talking straight, they know I got stink bait

Now the little woman don't like my stink bait, she thinks that it's gross
And before she'll let me back in the house, I got to go out to the shed
Scrub from toe to head, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to burn my clothes

I got stink bait ooee, it'll tip the scales on your olfactory
I got stink bait, it'll burn your eyes, make you wish your nose was a smaller size
Got stink bait, you can smell me coming a mile down the road, it's louder that the drummer
I got stink bait, it's social suicide, the fish can't resist it, but neither can the flies

I got stink bait, it's a wonder that they sell it, it's not a chick magnet in fact, it's a repellant
Stink bait, it's got a HAZMAT designation, it's the foulest smellin stuff since the dawn of creation
You know it comes with a low hanging cloud, permeates your skin, probably could be a secret weapon
