    "I lobster and never flounder" by Pinkard and Blowden

    More like a seal fife song than 'cephalopoddy', but it has some nice referances. (sp?)

    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.

    Frankly scallop, I don't give a clam.

    The Japanese have a song that goes with a dance... the "Ika Dance"... I'll try to find the lyrics. At one of the dinners at CIAC 2003 all of the japanese teuthologists sang it and did the dance (where they put their arms over their head to look like the fins of a squid.... hilarious)
