"Want to hear the theme song of shrimpers? It's quoted in the novel. Go to the website of the composer/performer Hack Bartley to listen!

Don't Wait Up on the Shrimp Boat Baby, 'Cause I'm Coming Home with the Crabs"

Subject: Lyr Add: DON'T WAIT UP FOR THE SHRIMP, MAMA...
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 22 Jan 12 - 04:02 PM

DON'T WAIT UP FOR THE SHRIMP, MAMA, DADDY'S COMIN' HOME WITH THE CRABS
As sung by Rusty McHugh on "We All Love a Woman with a Big Ol' Ass" (2008)

Well now, Mama said, "Boudreaux, go get some jumbo so we have a stew tonight."
He took the money though he knew stew was the last thing on his mind.
Under twenty minutes he was in the Quarter sinalade(?) up in a yaya's(?) bed.
He called home from the cathouse phone an' this is what he said:

"Don't wait up for the shrimp, Mama; Daddy's comin' home with the crabs.
I didn't get the shrimp like you said, pretty baby; got a bottle an' a hooker instead.
Well, I'd come home this mornin' but you'd hate my new friends.
Don't wait up for the shrimp, mama; Daddy's comin' home with the crabs."

REPEAT BOTH VERSES
