the weather's perfect
a slight breeze
the sun is out
sandals on my feet
drinks in the cooler
a bushel in a pot
and finally the water's getting hot

chips are on the table
salsas there too
setting up is easy
when you have a brew
starting to get hungry
blue crabs turn red
people showing up
waiting to be fed

lay down the paper
dump out the crabs
we're finally ready
everything's up for grabs
breaking shells with mallets
pass the old bay
avoid dead men's fingers
and it'll be okay
cracking and hammering
now they're empty husks
the sun starts to set
soon it will be dusk
so we move inside
full of crab and beer
stay up all night
the best time of the year
