The Lyrics

Sumpin' time,
Cause my livin' room's a sea.
Fish I'm pumpin'
And my cottons won't dry.

Shad in a dish,
And the monkfish are cookin'--
A touch of some bay leaves
As they fry.

I'll get my moorings,
Soon as the tide starts ebbing.
I hope to wed this spring
When my fiancée sails by.

Again it's pouring
I don't want to alarm you
But sand dab and monkfish strand is nigh.
