     Verse 2 (just do the same chord riffs)

     It's as easy as fishing, you can be a musician,
          if you could make sounds sort of mellow.
     Get a second hand guitar, chances are you'll go far
          if you get in with the right bunch of fellows.
     People see you having fun just a lyin' in the sun,
         tell them that you like it this way.
     It's the work that we avoid. Hey, we're all self employeed.
         We love to work at nothing all day.

     [Lead break]
     Take good care of my business when I'm away everyday.

     [Lead break]
     [Repeat verse 1]
     [Repeat chorus to fade out]
