The Lyrics

Takin' lobsters from pots, hon,
I fought the claw, and the claw won,
I fought the claw, and the claw won.

This isn't funny, go get a gun.
I fought the claw, and the claw won,
I fought the claw, and the claw won.

It missed my nates, but it squeezed my nads,
Crimped by a crustacean.
I wish instead that I had caught crabs.
I fought the claw, and the claw won,
I fought the claw, and the claw won.

Lobster--blast it with that six gun:
You shot the claw, but you missed, hon;
I don't know now how I'll piss, hon.

I miss that weight; it gave me good fun.
You shot the claw, but you missed hon.
For your faux pas I'm like a miss, hon.

You left me vacant and I feel no-nad,
Divested of my "gun."
I guess I never will be a dad.

You shot the claw; misaimed the gun;
I lost my log--you clear-cut, hon.
