Louie the Lobster

Song by Pachamamacitas
Produced by LongLiveLunacy

E

Lobsters are monogamous

A

they mate for life

B7

weeelllllllllll Except for one named Louie,

            E

who wouldn’t take a wife.

E

His friends would say that Louie

    A

Was doomed to rot in jail

    B7

He thought the world was his oyster

                E

clawing after sweet lobster tail.

        B7                                     E (mute guitar until “true”)

And that was a very shellfish thing to do

                           B7

Louie please be true

              A      E

Even minnows go to school

    B7       

Don’t flounder like a whale.

    A        E

stuck in shallow shale

         A

You chose a life of mischief

       E                    B7

when you could have been a starfish!

         E   

His friends called him a hard ass

A

his folks caught him smoking sea weed (water bong sound effect)

    B7

When you’re in a pinch.

                                     E

He won’t come crawling to your need.

        E

He started sleeping with the fishes

A

(ohh that fishy smell!)

    B7

Started selling black tar herring

            E

but it was a hard sell

   B7                                          E (mute guitar until “true”)

And that was a very shellfish thing to do

                           B7

Louie, please be true

              A      E

Even minnows go to school

    B7       

Don’t flounder like a whale.

    A        E

stuck in shallow shale

         A

You chose a life of mischief

       E                    B7

when you could have been a starfish!

A                                              E

he got caught up with some mobsters

                        A   E

they said you’d butter shell out the cash

A                                      E

or else we’ll make you lobster mash

A                                    B7

and serve you with a pinch of Mrs. Dash

    E

It was too late to call on his friends.

    A

the mob came to waste him fast.

    B7

and over that boiling water

            E

he saw his life in a hot flash

E

Why didn’t he flow with the ocean?

        A

why’d he hang out with coast trash?

    B7

he poured out his last salty tear,

        E

blubberin’ to Mrs. Dash.

      B7

but what it all boiled down to, was that everything he done

A                    B7 A E

had been a shelfish thing to do.

                                                       B7

Wudda been butter had you been true

    A        E

Even minnows go to school

        B7

You got floundered like a whale.

    A                    E

stuck in a shallow shale.

         A

You could have been a starfish!

E                B7

Now you’re so deliciouuuuuus!

E
