Spear Me A Sturgeon

Hey der guy!  Every year me and de guys take a week off work in late February
and hit ol' Lake Winnebago to try and get us a sturgeon.
They're pretty rare so ya don't see many if any,
but de fellas and I devised a good luck song dat helped me last year.
And it goes like this...
I'm gonna spear me a sturgeon, get me a sturgeon,
Hit me a sturgeon wit de spear!
And while I'm waitin' to spear me a sturgeon,
I think I'll drink one more beer!
Well it was late February out on de lake,
Got de ice saw off de truck - cut out a big ice cake.
Slid de shanty over, and stocked a snow bank wit beer,
Turned on de little heater and I hung up my spear.
Well I'm de best sturgeon spearer on de whole lake,
And when I go home tonight I'm eatin' sturgeon steak!
I just gotta be patient and wait fer de slaughter,
I opened a beer and started to peer into de murky green water.
I'm gonna spear me a sturgeon, get me a sturgeon,
Hit me a sturgeon wit de spear!
And while I'm waitin' to spear me a sturgeon,
I think I'll drink one more beer!
About five hours later, my eyes were gettin' sore,
I knew Charlie had a grill at his shanty next door.
We grilled a half o' dozen brats and swapped a story or two,
After some bull, some brew and brats I knew de time was past due.
I said a 80 pounder's what I'm gonna bushwhack,
So's I better header back to my own ice shack!
As I stepped inside, a big lunker swam by-
I said Holy Crap Fish!  You best prepare to die!
I threw wit all my might and says "Cripes, I think I got him!"
But de spear veered to de left and stuck into de bottom.
De lunker swam away as I let out a cry-
With a tear, another beer, I was teed off guy!
I'm gonna spear me a sturgeon, get me a sturgeon,
Hit me a sturgeon wit de spear!
And while I'm waitin' to spear me a sturgeon,
I think I'll drink one more beer!
Well I felt a little better after four more beers,
So I got myself together and I wiped up my tears.
Den I saw a shadow deep down in the dark
To my surprise it was de size of a great white shark!                   
I aimed and threw the spear dead square in his back,
It took a 20-minute fight to get dat thing in de shack!
At de registration center it weighed 202-
I said now that's a trophy sturgeon and I ordered a brew!!!
 I'm gonna spear me a sturgeon, get me a sturgeon,
Hit me a sturgeon wit de spear!
And I'm glad that I just speared me a sturgeon,
Cause I just ran out of beer!
 Everybody now!
 I'm gonna spear me a sturgeon, get me a sturgeon,
Hit me a sturgeon wit de spear!
And I'm glad that I just speared me a sturgeon,
Cause I just ran out of beer!
