IF THERE'S A GOOD BASS HOLE, THE WATER'S MINE
THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A NO TRESPASSING SIGN
I FORGOT MY LICENSE, IF THE LAW WANTS TO KNOW
I'D RATHER PAY A FINE IF I CAN'T CONVINCE 'EM TO LET ME GO

I DON'T SWEAT ABOUT THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY
I COULD HAVE KEPT A LOT OF KEEPERS, BUT I WANNA CHASE THE GAME

I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVING WOMEN AND FISHING
I'M HOOKED ON A GOOD TIME
I'M HOOKED ON CASTING A GOOD LINE
I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION

THERE'S BEEN GIRLS SWIMMING ROUND IN MY LIFE
BUT THEY NEVER TOOK THE BAIT TO BE MY WIFE
IF WE DON'T GET A WEDDING LICENSE THEY DON'T WANNA LIVE WITH ME
BUT I'M ALRIGHT THERE'S PLENTY LEFT IN THE SEA

I DON'T SWEAT ABOUT THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY
I COULD HAVE KEPT A LOT OF KEEPERS, BUT I WANNA CHASE THE GAME

I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVING WOMEN AND FISHING
I'M HOOKED ON A GOOD TIME
I'M HOOKED ON CASTING A GOOD LINE
I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION

AFTER I LAND 'EM, I THROW 'EM BACK
SO NO ONE HAS A BROKEN HEART ATTACK

I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION
WHEN IT COMES TO LOVING WOMEN AND FISHING
I'M HOOKED ON A GOOD TIME
I'M HOOKED ON CASTING A GOOD LINE
I'D RATHER ASK FORGIVENESS THAN PERMISSION
