get a bite lyrics – apologetix

we tried – all night – no dice – couldn’t get a bite
we tried – all night – no dice – couldn’t get a bite
we came in this mornin’ when i met jesus christ
tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ to get a bite
where’ve you been at simon?
i’ve been fishin’ half the night
tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ to get a bite
he said, would you try
if i showed you how to find ’em
would you take a ride – if i get inside?
he sure proved right
’cause our boats almost capsized
from all the fish we fried – when our net had dried
lived my life in galilee – capernaum is my town
tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ to get a bite
says that he wants me to fish for men
but i just don’t know how
tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ to get a bite
he said, would you try
if i showed you how to find ’em
with a bait that’s right? would you get excited?
and would you try
if i called you my disciple
would you preach for christ? could you get a bite?
lead
i’ve been doing his works now
while he’s been doin’ mine
tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ to get a bite
and would you cry
if i told you that he died
and that he gave his life? would i get a bite?
and would you try
if i told you how to find him
would you take advice?
would you let him inside? (3x)
would you let him inside? (ah ha)
would you let him inside?
drums
try, try, try to get a bite (9x)
would you let him inside (4x)

luke 5:10b
then jesus said to simon, “don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.”
