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."
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."
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.
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!"
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?"
