Thread Name: Lyr Req: Crab Song
Subject: Lyric Required: Crab Song
I'm just back from my annual summer trip to Kerry.

I heard a song over there from an excellent Dublin singer. It's about a man who meets a fisherman and asks him for a fish. The fisherman explains he's only caught a crab all day. Our man takes the live crab home and unable to find anywhere better to store it puts it in the maid's piss-pot with disastrous consequences.

Does anyone have the lyrics?
