What do crabs wear when they're dressed?
Do we see them in suits and ties?
Do the ladies all wear ball gowns?
And carefully make up their eyes?
Do they stand in front of a mirror
And reckon they look pretty neat?
Do they wear stiletto heels
with toes that pinch their feet?
And when they're dressed to kill
Where do you think they go?
Are they off to a high-class party
Or a seat at a West End show?
No, crabs have only one destination
A cold, hard fishmonger's slab -
That's the place you need to look
To spot the well-dressed crab.
