Callinectes sapidus


Beautiful Swimmers they know how to move
Slidin' cross the water like a steel guitar
Beautiful Swimmers stay in the groove
Riding constant currents near and far

Standing in a tidal pool just east of Baltimore
Watching little blue crabs navigate the eastern shore
Every bayou stream and river in time runs to the sea
Every flounder, tadpole, and softshell feels the choreography

There all Beautiful Swimmers who know how to move
Sneakin' pass the draggers and the oyster bars
Beautiful Swimmers just feel the groove
Painting liquid brush strokes like Renoir
