The Lyrics

Shuckin' time,
But the shivvin' ain't easy.
Fish are one thing:
They get caught on a line.

But clams, a bitch.
They need more than just hookin'.
You must split shells--tasty,
Though, to dine.

Tubs at the moorings
Are filled nearly to the rigging.
Some clams are quite big--
Takes much work for their pryin'.

Epithets pouring
Forth; the mildest is "frigging!"
The rest of them are way out of line

Shuckin' time,
And the shivvin' ain't easy.
Fish are chum things,
But you ain't gotta pry 'm.

"Damn clams, a bitch!"
My diction has ears cooking.
"Yo, hush," wimpled lady
Gloats, "you swine!"

Great job on a song that I don't think I've seen targetted in the time I've been here
