We Did It Sideways

Album: In the Family Way - Artist: The Kipper Family

And now - the end is nigh,
Our business soon - will be completed,
But e'er - we say good-bye,
We've this to add - so please stay seated.
Now we - have hunted crabs,
Both from the shore - and in the tide ways,
But more, much more than that,
We did it side-ways.

What is a crab - what have it got,
If not eight legs - then it is not.
What e'er its part - in the creation,
Still that is not - a true crustation.
The way to tell - is like ourselves,
They do it side-ways.

Cuz yes - I've had a few,
But then again - too few to mention,
They taste - of nought at all,
And always give - us indigestion.
So when - we near King's Lynn,
Where they are served - in funny fried ways,
We snort - please pass the port,
And do it side-ways.

Once et a meal - they give us trout,
We ate it up - and spat it out,
And though they stayed - and called us selfish,
We would not eat - what is not shellfish,
We couldn't stop - we had to hop,
But did it side-ways.

They say - a man must do,
What he must do - that's why we did it.
We always - caught the crabs,
We're proud to say - we never hid it.
We meet - young ladies sweet,
Who try to tempt - us in untried ways,
But always - love our wives,
And do it side-ways.

And now - the end have come.
spoken: And none too soon in my humble opinion
