Shrimp boats is a-comin' Their sails are in sight Shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Look here! The shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight Shrimp boats is a-comin' Their sails are in sight Shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Look here! The shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight (Shrimp boats is a-comin', there's dancin' tonight) (SLOWLY): They go to sea with the evenin' tide And their women folk wave their good-bye (Ill sant vas... There they go) While the Louisiana moon floats on high And they wait for the day they can cry... Shrimp boats is a-comin' Their sails are in sight Shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Look here! The shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight (Shrimp boats is a-comin', there's dancin' tonight) (SLOWLY): Happy the days while they're mending the nets 'Til once more they ride high out to sea (Ill sant vas... There they go) Then how lonely the long nights will be 'Til that wonderful day when they see... Shrimp boats is a-comin' Their sails are in sight Shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' tonight Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Why don't-cha hurry, hurry, hurry home Look here! The shrimp boats is a-comin' There's dancin' there's dancin' There's dancin' there's dancin' Shrimp boats is a-comin' - tonight! (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - April 2005)
