Lyrics

Bass Ackwards (The One that Gets Away)

Written By: Michael Coyle

“Bass Ackwards (The One That Gets Away)”

It’s okay that you like fishing
But sometimes I am wishing
That you spent more time with me than on the pier

Got your mounted fish on the wall
From the time you forgot to call
It’s the only thing that got mounted around here

Pre-chorus
Maybe if I had scales
Then you’d get some tail

CHORUS
Cause you’re so bass ackwards
And you know what I mean
You’re holding on to a fishing pole
And you’re casting me
Away like a worm on a hook
So I hope there won’t come a day
That you’re so bass ackwards
That I’m the one that gets away.

Remember on our wedding day
You were twenty minutes late
Because you were busy reeling the big one in

And did you think I wouldn’t shout
When you tried to name our baby “Trout”
That’s one battle I had to win, where do I begin?

Pre-chorus
I just can’t believe
That your priorities…

CHORUS
Are so bass ackwards
And you know what I mean
You’re holding on to a fishing pole
And you’re casting me
Away like a worm on a hook
So I hope there won’t come a day
That you’re so bass ackwards
That I’m the one that gets away.

Bridge
I know I’m the perfect catch
So God forbid I leave
Cause in case you’re wondering
There ain’t other fish in the sea
Quite like me…

CHORUS
But you’re so bass ackwards
And you know what I mean
You’re holding on to a fishing pole
And you’re casting me
Away like a worm on a hook
So I hope there won’t come a day
That you’re so bass ackwards
That I’m the one that gets away.
