The Little Crabs (Tsitsanis/Papaioannou)

Two little crabs sit among the pebbles at the beach
Deserted, aggrieved and the poor things are always crying
Their mother Mrs. Crab has a hot date with Mr. Sparos* in Rafina

And the little crabs keep crying among the beach pebbles.

Mr. Crab returns home in the evening and finds the house deserted,
He searches for his family and tears his hair out.
He heads for Athens to try to catch up with Mrs. Crab

The sun rises pinkly and Mr. Crab returns
Back to the coast but without his wife
She’s swimming in the Rafinian shallows with Mr. Sparos the all-nighter
