Someone asked for the words. Tune is probably generic Cajunish.

CRAB SHAKER
(mg)

I've been a crabshaker all of my life
A crab shaking teenager crab shaking wife
I got me a pick and I got me a knife
Been a crabshaker all of my life

When a crabshaking woman meets a crabshaking man
They're going to have babies as fast as they can
Feed them on crab cakes fried up in the pan
When a crabshaking woman meets a crabshaking man

Shake it shake it mama till the job is complete
Shake them right down to their little crab feet…
Take out your fork and pick out the meat
Shake it shake it mama till the job is complete

You know you've been shaking just a little too long
When one arm is weak and the other is strong
And the boss woman says you've been shaking it wrong
You know you've been shaking just a little too long

You say boss woman I can't take it no more
My back is all wrecked and my hands are all sore
I'll get me a job in a grocery store
You say boss woman I can't take it no more

If you want to see a crabshaker take a good look
You won't read about us in a history book
You'll see us in Westport see us in Chinook
If you want to see a crabshaker take a good look

Know the songwriter's name, mg? It's important for us to have attributions for songs.

mg. Tune is somewhat generic I think or might have slipped over from something. mg
