Old She-crab

TML # 007685
Tune unknown, no score available.
Well the old she-crab was a-sittin' on a post
Shallow-who, shallow-who
Well the old she-crab was a-sittin' on a post
When along came a fisherman
And took her home to roost
Sing ring-a-la ding-a-la doo

When he got home the woman was asleep
Shallow-who, shallow-who
When he got home the woman was asleep
So he put it in the pisspot
There for to keep

The old woman got up for to do her due
Shallow-who, shallow-who
The old woman got up for to do her due
And the damned old she crab
Grabbed her by the flue
What ho!, said the woman as sure as you are born
Shallow-who, shallow-who
What ho!, said the woman as sure as you are born
There's a devil in the pisspot
Stickin' up his horn

She tossed the crab in the old man's bed
Shallow-who, shallow-who
She tossed the crab in the old man's bed
And it bit out a chunk
Of the old man's head

The old she crab scuttled off to the sea
Shallow-who, shallow-who
The old she crab scuttled off to the sea
Said I may get caught
But they'll never eat me.
