Beddie-Bye Blues

Lobster Mobster and Da Shrimp are given yet another musical outing featuring their perpetually bad grammar. It's not that I have a thing against them because this is a pretty fun comic relief / space filler song, but I always wished that they'd give more chances for Ariel to sing instead. This one was sung in the episode Double Bubble as Lobster Mobster and Da Shrimp try desperately to get the mer-twins to go to sleep. This song can be found on the Splash Hits compilation.

(printable version)

Lobster Mobster:
Muzzle up your mugs
Or I'll fill 'em full of slugs
That's an offer that you can't refuse
Forget your troubles and dream
Up a bubble-brained scheme

Da Shrimp:
That's telling 'em, boss

Lobster Mobster:
Shut your snappers and snooze

Da Shrimp:
Shut your snappers and snooze

Lobster Mobster:
To the beddie-bye blues

Snuff out your cigars
And thank your lucky stars
You ain't swimming in some cement shoes
Think of something that's nice

Da Shrimp:
Like what, boss?

Lobster Mobster:
Like a holdup or a heist

Da Shrimp:
That's nice

Lobster Mobster:
And take your getaway cruise

Da Shrimp:
Take your getaway cruise

Lobster Mobster:
With the beddie-bye blues

Slip into slumber
Saw a little lumber and snore
Let 'em hear you on shore
Just cut a couple kippers
Relax your weary flippers
And don't forget to zip
Your little lips with zippers

Da Shrimp:
That's beautiful, boss

Lobster Mobster:
And don't go crying for your muddah
'Cause now we've only got each uddah
So sleep, little chowderheads, please
Shut your snappers and snooze
To the beddie-bye blues
