I woke up this mornin' and all my shrimps was dead and gone,
I was thinkin' about you, baby, why you hear me weep and moan.
I got dead shrimps here, someone is fishin' in my pond,
I've served my best bait, baby, and I can't do that no harm.
Everything I do, babe, you got your mouth stuck out,
Hole where I used to fish, you got me posted out,
everything I do, you got your mouth stuck out,
at the hole where I used to fish, baby, you've got me posted out.
I got dead shrimps here, 'n' someone fishin' in my pond,
catchin' my goggle-eye perches, and they barbequin' the bone
Now you taken my shrimps, baby, you know you turned me down.
I couldn't do nothin', until I got myself unwound.
You taken my shrimps, know you turned me down,
babe, I couldn't do nothin', until I got myself unwound.
