lobster went a courtin' and he did ride, uh-huh
lobster went a courtin' and he did ride, uh-huh
lobster went a courtin' and he did ride
two strange cherubs by his side, uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh

He crawled into the lady's oval sky, uh-huh
He crawled into the lady's oval sky, uh-huh
He crawled into the lady's oval sky
with a big black tux and a small bowtie, uh-huh uh-huh uh-huh

said the lady "that's a mighty ring", uh-huh
said the lady "that's a mighty ring", uh-huh
said the lady "that's a mighty ring"
the stone so big it makes me sing, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

one little angel with angel wings, uh-huh
one little angel with angel wings,, uh-huh
one little angel with angel wings,
in a stupor he stands and forgets to sing, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the other little angel has a peg for a leg, uh-huh
the other little angel has a peg for a leg, uh-huh
the other little angel has a peg for a leg,
he holds a crown and begins to beg, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

his head all wrapped and walks on canes, uh-huh
his head all wrapped and walks on canes, uh-huh
his head all wrapped and walks on canes
his diaper too big and he seems insane, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lobster holds the ring while the lady sighs, uh-huh
the lobster holds the ring while the lady sighs, uh-huh
the lobster holds the ring while the lady sighs
"you've got antennas instead of eyes", uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

"sweet mr. lobster i have a hunch", uh-huh
"sweet mr. lobster i have a hunch", uh-huh
"sweet mr. lobster i have a hunch"
"that you would make a fine fine lunch", uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

so he dropped the ring and crawled away, uh-huh
so he dropped the ring and crawled away, uh-huh
so he dropped the ring and crawled away
to perhaps be eaten on another day, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

then the hungry lady ate the ring, uh-huh
then the hungry lady ate the ring, uh-huh
then the hungry lady ate the ring
it glowed inside her and made her sing, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the cherubs heard the song and began to swoon, uh-huh
the cherubs heard the song and began to swoon, uh-huh
the cherubs heard the song and began to swoon
the lobster climbed the sky to live on the moon, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lady was sad and felt lonely, uh-huh
the lady was sad and felt lonely, uh-huh
the lady was sad and felt lonely
so she placed each cherub on a different knee, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the three sang a song to the lobster moon, uh-huh
the three sang a song to the lobster moon, uh-huh
the three sang a song to the lobster moon
they all danced a jig and hummed a tune, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lobster drifted down on their serenade, uh-huh
the lobster drifted down on their serenade, uh-huh
the lobster drifted down on their serenade
he crept kind of close but was still afraid, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lady made a burp and the ring fell out, uh-huh
the lady made a burp and the ring fell out, uh-huh
the lady made a burp and the ring fell out
and the lobster he began to shout, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

"now little lady will you mary me?", uh-huh
"now little lady will you mary me?", uh-huh
"now little lady will you mary me?"
we can all live together now beneath the sea, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lady and the cherubs and the big gold ring, uh-huh
the lady and the cherubs and the big gold ring, uh-huh
the lady and the cherubs and the big gold ring
couldn't breathe underwater so they started drowning, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

the lobster laughed in an evil way, uh-huh
the lobster laughed in an evil way, uh-huh
the lobster laughed in an evil way
and the lady and the cherubs and the ring turned grey, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

as the four finally did so lose their breath, uh-huh
as the four finally did so lose their breath, uh-huh
as the four finally did so lose their breath
the lobster laughed himself to death, uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh

(found this drawing on sunday... circa 1900... pretty darn strange... not sure of the story, don't know the artist, and not sure what the cherubs are either... i'm wondering if it might be from a hans christian andersen or lewis carroll story... or just a little outsider drawing...)

May I just say I think you have equalled if not surpassed your inspiration in extreme twistedness.
