Eastern people lay
Like eastern people do
Waiting for the tumble time
Like tumble time people do.
Away on their skiffs, digging for clams
Boil them up and eat them raw
See the salty-spiced splake awake?
Seals and meals, the mackerel they take.
No clam bake, no first mate
Use the seized rod, no need for bait.
Waiting for the tumble-time.
