OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I was a cook, she was a waitress
Down at Salty Sam's Seafood Cafe
And somewhere 'tween the clam juice and the seaweed salad
Some little shrimp just lured her away

4 ladies promenade
Oh, I lobster and never flounder
Swing a little girl, go round and round, promenade back to the start
Oh, I lobster and never flounder
He wrapped his line around her and they drove off in his carp


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round the ring
Down the middle and pass the ocean, extend
Swing thru my friend, boys trade and then
Boys run right, bend the line
Jump* to the middle and back
Square thru but on the third hand slide thru
Swing your corner girl around, promenade back to the start
Oh, I lobster and never flounder
I octopus his face in, he's only gonna break her heart


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
So I said just squid and leave me for that piano tuna
If you want to trout something new
She was the bass I ever had, now my life has no porpoise
Oh my cod I love her

4 ladies promenade...


CLOSER    Basic

[Spoken:] Boy, I swordfish she'd come back to me
I've kelped her picture in my walleye just for the halibut
I wonder if she's kelped mine in her perch

4 men promenade...

4 ladies promenade go once around then swing at home
Frankly scallop, I don't give a clam

I Lobster And Never Flounder
 
 

I was a cook and she was a waitress,
Down at the Salty Dog Seafood Cafe;
And somewhere 'tween the clam juice and the seaweed salad,
Some little shrimp just lured her away.

Oh, I lobster and never flounder.
He wrapped his line around her,
And they drove off in his carp.
Oh, I lobster and never flounder.
I octopus his face in, he'll only break her heart.

I said just squid and leave me for that piano tuna,
If you want to trout something new;
She was the bass I ever had, now my life has no porpoise,
Oh, my cod, I love her, yes, I do.

Oh, I lobster and never flounder.
He wrapped his line around her,
And they drove off in his carp.
Oh, I lobster and never flounder.
I octopus his face in, he'll only break her heart.

[Spoken] Frankly scallop, I don't give a clam.

Lyrics by Bobby and Sparky Braddock.
Recorded by Sandy Pinkard and Richard Bowden.
