Fish Ain’t Bitin’ Lyrics By Lamont Dozier

    i’m out here fighting hungry
    the fish ain’t biting
    life’s so frightening
    i’m out here stumbling
    broke and crumbling
    and nothing’s hatching
    and i ain’t catching

    nothing nothing
    nothing nothing nothing

    i’m running last in this human race
    trying to get over this hopeless place
    trying to find that no defense
    that i can’t win with no confidence

    and meanwhile in dc
    tricky dick is trying to be slick
    and the short end of the stick
    because i’m gonna get it
    tricky dick please quit

    nothing nothing
    nothing nothing nothing

    i’ve been trying to recover
    from that phase one
    but it’s just too hard when
    the damage is already done

    lord we will overcome
    or am i just destined
    destined to be a bum

    with phase two
    i thought i was through
    in phase four gonna
    take me out the back door

    this i know it’s for sure
    i’m on my knees begging please
    tricky dick stop your shit

    nothing nothing

    can’t afford to be lazy
    when the cost of living’s
    gone crazy
