Tonight Sweet Crab Meat

paddle crab
has paddles
for swimming

I swam it
into my bucket
to eat for tea

    Sweet Crab, Met Eat

    Painted my paddles
    polished shined my shell.
    Coz tonight, at the ball,
    I'll be lively party belle.

    I'll arrive in a fast coach.
    Wear my best broach.
    Ready hungry for a treat:
