[Verse 1]
I went fishing one day (oh, well, well, well)
And I put my hook out in the water(oh, oh,)
And something got a hold to it (oh, yes)
And it tried to get loose (well)
When I pulled it up (oh Lord)
It was a big fish on the hook (oh my, my, my)
He was a-twisting and a-turning (oh)
Trying to get loose (yeah)
But the hook had him down (oooh)
And it couldn’t get loose (oh no)
And I said I wish the Lord (hey I wish the Lord)
Would hook me one day (oh)
Like this hooked fish (well)
He hooked his feeling in me (oh)
And one Friday evening (yeah)
He came into my soul (ooh yeah)
And he hooked me with his spirit (oh Lord)
And ever since that day (ever since, Hmm)
A song came to my mind (oh)
I said it like Jeremiah said (yeah)
There’s a fire (fire)
That’s burning (ooh)
And it’s set up in my bones (oh yeah)
And I couldn’t hold my pee (wow, wow)
And I told my mother (well)
But that wasn’t enough (well)
I told my father (good Lord)
And I told my sister too (God forgive) (well Lord)
And I went on and told my brother (oh)
What was wrong with me (oh, oh)
And this is what I told him in a song
I said Lord

[Chorus 1]
Jesus got a hook in me
I don’t want to get loose
Jesus got a hook in me (oh yeah)
I don’t want to get loose
Wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up (tangled up)
I don’t want to get loose (oh, oh yeah)
Go and tell my mother (oh yeah)
I don’t want to get loose
Go and tell my mother tonight
I don’t want to get loose
Go and tell my father now (father)
I don’t want to get loose
Wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up in Jesus (tangled up)
I don’t want to get loose

[Chorus 1]
Jesus got a hook in me (oh yeah)
I don’t want to get loose
Jesus got his hook in me tonight (oh)
And I don’t want to get loose (don’t want to get loose)
Jesus got his hook in me (oh yes)
I don’t want to get loose (don’t want to get loose)
Wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up all in Jesus (oh)
And I don’t want to get loose

[Chorus 2]
If you need money, God’s got it
If you need a ring God’s got it (God’s got it)
If you need a wig God’s got it (God’s got it)
God’s got it (God’s got it)
I’m wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up (tangled up)
And I don’t want to get loose (oh, yeah, yeah)

[Chorus 2]
If you need a friend God’s got it(God’s got it)
If you need a car God’s got it (God’s got it)
If you need a heart God’s got it (God’s got it)
If you need a shoulder to cry on (oh)
Wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up (tangled up)
And I don’t want to get loose (oh yeah)
Whooo!
(oh, oh, yeah)
(oh, oh, oh)

[Chorus 1]
Go and tell my mother (oh yeah)
I don’t want to get loose
Go and tell my father tonight
I don’t want to get loose
Go and tell my sisters and brothers
I don’t want to get loose
Wrapped up (wrapped up)
Tangled up (tangled up)
Jesus don’t want to get loose
(oh, oh, oh)
Oh yes Jesus
(Oooh, oooh)

[Outro]

Mine was perfect Tom
Now if ya’ll are pissed off, do it, cos
