Shawn: If you’re going to mention shrimp boats in the context of shrimp folklore, you have to follow up by citing a gorgeous Jo Stafford song of that title. An excerpt:

(SLOWLY):

Happy the days while they’re mending the nets

‘Til once more they ride high out to sea

(Ils sont 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
