Whitefish Hole (A Frank Willis)

I was in my house at the top of the hill,
When I heard the roar of snowmobiles;
There was Darcy, Patrick and Gildo,
They were all going down to the whitefish hole.

Six miles out on the Pakashu Lake,
The auger and the beer is in the comatik;
Hooked up to Galla, Tim and Dean,
Gettin' ready to leave St Augustine.

He said, we're all going down to the whitefish hole,
Hook up the shack, and take it in tow;
Bring along the beer to keep out the cold,
We're all going down to the whitefish hole.

I was going pretty fast in my big Mach Zee,
I ain't gonna let a V-Max catch me;
Left them behind in a cloud of snow,
I was the first to the whitefish hole.

Later that night, when the fishing was done,
We had a little party and we had a lotta fun;
I pulled out the squeezebox and played a little tune,
Everybody danced to the light of the moon;

He said, we're all going down to the whitefish hole,
Hook up the shack, and take it in tow;
Bring along the beer to keep out the cold,
We're all going down to the whitefish hole.

We found Randy sleeping in a sled,
So we got a little blanket and covered up his head;
Daylight broke and we were six miles in,
Back to old St Augustine.

Yeah we all went down to the whitefish hole,
We hooked up the shack, and we took it in tow;
Drank all the beer and I froze my toe,
We all went down to the whitefish hole.

Drank all the beer and I froze my toe,
We all went down to the whitefish hole.
