Alone in the dark
On the edge of an abyss
The alarm just buzzed at three a.m.
and I can't believe my eyes
He's digging out his fishing pole
and all those little flies!
I said "honey, are you crazy?
do you know the time of night?"
He said "I want to catch a couple fish
before it gets too light"
Now, I'm really getting worried
about my husbands mental state
I think he's going downhill
and at such a hurried rate!
I'd better call the doctor now
for my demented hubby's sake
Because anyone who's Sane must know
the fish are not awake!
But I think I heard the nurse wrong
oh yes, there must be some mistake
For when I called at four a.m. she said
"the doctor's at the lake!"
