8:17a - Crabs Walk Sideways Lyrics -- The Smothers Brothers


I think my sister's granddaughter is a tad bit young for this one yet... But it still sure is cute!

CRABS WALK SIDEWAYS

The Smothers Brothers

Herman met Sally on the beach one night,
The sea was calm and the starfish were bright.
She looked at him and he looked at her;
It was true love at first sight.

Well, Herman told his folks about the girl that he found,
They said, "Herman there must be other girls around.
'Cause crabs walk sideways; lobsters walk straight,
And we won't let you take her for your mate."

Chorus:

Crabs walk sideways and lobsters walk straight,
And you can't take a crab for your mate.

Well, Herman told his Sally, and it broke her heart;
She loved that lobster right from the start;
He took her in his claws and said, "I'll always be yours,
But still, dear, we'll have to part."

Chorus:

She said, "Let me talk to your mom and dad;
I'll show them crabs really aren't that bad."
But they turned her away.
"What will the neighbors say?"
And they laughted at the funny walk she had.

Chorus:

Then one day on the sandbar what did Herman see,
But his little ol' Sally walking straight as can be.
He said, "Sweetheart, now they'll take you in the family!"
She said, "Don't you sweetheart me! Hic!"

Chorus:

8:45p - Beep Beep Lyrics -- The Playmates


Trip down memory lane sponsored by my sister, her son, and a grandmother... Whose lyrics are right? So she wanted me to email her MY recollection of them. Well, I cheated... LOL!

The Playmates - Beep Beep
The Playmates Lyrics - Beep Beep Lyrics

[Very slowly]
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep
While riding in my Cadillac
What to my surprise
A little Nash Rambler was following me
About one third my size
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Slowly]
I pushed my foot down to the floor
To give the guy the shake
But the little Nash Rambler stayed right behind
He still had on his brake
He musta thought his car had more guts
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Normal speed]
My car went into passing gear
And we took off with gust (whoosh)
Soon we were going ninety
Musta left him in the dust
When I peeked in the mirror of my car
I couldn't believe my eyes
The little Nash Rambler was right behind
You'd think that guy could fly
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Quickly]
Now we were doing a hundred and ten
This certainly was a race
For a Rambler to pass a Caddy
Would be a big disgrace
The guy musta wanted to pass me up
As he kept on tooting his horn (beep beep)
I'll show him that a Cadillac is not a car to scorn
Beep beep beep beep
His horn went beep beep beep

[Very quickly]
Now we're going a hundred twenty
As fast as I can go
The Rambler pulled along side of me
As if we were going slow
The fella rolled down his window
And yelled for me to hear
"Hey buddy how do I get this car outa second gear?"


current mood: amused
