When I don't think about you, I'm thinkin' 'bout huntin',
I've gotta shoot somethin' to hang on the wall,
When I don't think about you, I'm thinkin' 'bout poker,
Playin' with some jokers, drinkin' and havin' a ball.

Chorus
But I'm distracted by your sparkling eyes.
I'm the world's most luckiest guy.
I mostly admit only one thing is true,
That I cannot not think about you.

When I don't think about you, I think about fishin'
I'm on a mission to catch the world's largest bass.
When I don't think about you, I'm thinkin' 'bout NASCAR,
Playin' my gui-tar while smokin' my stash.
?Repeat chorus

Bridge
This morning when I had a faraway look,
You asked me what was on my mind.
If you thought I was thinkin' 'bout some other girl,
I was thinkin' 'bout breakfast the whole time.

When I don't think about you, I'm thinkin' 'bout football,
Going to the pool hall or riding a bull.

When I don't think about you, I'm thinkin' about buffets,
Tuna and mayonnaise, I never get full.

Repeat chorus

Outro
I mostly admit only one thing is true,
That I cannot not think about you.
That I cannot not think about you.
That I cannot not think about you.
