Sounds of Home – Twelve

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the January 4th edition of Sounds of Home!

The Crabfish

There was a little man and he had a little wife
and he loved her as much as he loved his life.

Refrain:
Mash a row dow dow dow diddle all the day,
Mash a row dow dow dow diddle all the day.

One hour in the night, his wife grew sick,
and all that she wanted was a little crab fish…

Then her husband arose and put on his clothes,
and down to the seaside he followed his nose...

“O fisherman. O fisherman, can you tell me,
have you a little crabfish you could sell to me?

“O yes, O yes. I have one, two, and three,
and the best of them I will sell to thee”…

So he caught him and bought him and put him in a dish,
and he said, “Oh wife, put your nose to this“…

Then his wife just to smell him popped up from her clothes,
and the crawfish popped up and grabbed her by the nose…

“Oh help, dear husband; come hither, do you hear?”
But the crabfish had already grabbed him by the ear…

And so my friends, if for a crawfish you thirst;
please try to remember to cook him first...
