There are times
When you find
Lobsters in a bucket
Can't climb out
Why won't they climb away?
Because other lobsters
Pull them down

Cherry pits and paper clips
And people talking smack
Giant squid will come right up
And pull your train right off the track.
Mammoth broom swoops on down
And sweeps you in a whole

Friends help each other
Any way they can
When you're up at bat
They'll be your biggest fan
When you're in a pit
they'll pull you out of it
It ain't wrong to write a song
For all your friends to sing along.

People too me and you
Can also be like lobsters in bucket
It's all just one big mess
Please don't be a lobster
Friends are best

Making lunch for the baseball bunch
While playing violin
Feeding bands to giant clams
That's where the fun begins
Cantaloupes and cowboy ropes
Hone those whittleing skills

Friends help each other
Any way they can
When you're up at bat
They'll be your biggest fan
When you're in a pit
They'll pull you out of it
It ain't wrong to write a song
For all your friends to sing along

    General CommentEverything is in the first phrase. It's actually true that if you have lobsters in a bucket one that is near escaping will get pulled back into the bucket by the others because they too are trying to escape. So in their selfish pursuit none of the lobster's suceed escape. So uh... don't be a lobster.

    General CommentI think this song is about drugs. Peer pressure (from the bad, bad lobsters) and real friends, etc. About not doing that crap and just having fun.

    Or maybe the Aquabats are just crazy. Either way, this song rocks.

    General CommentI really can't stand this song. I think they're trying too hard to be a more jazzy version of Mad Caddies in this one.

    General CommentMaybe this song has a message. I'm not really looking for a message. In fact, I love this song purely for how whimsical it is.

    General CommentYeah.

    I think the message (I'm shocked that I'm even thinking there's a message in an Aquabat song) is that don't sell your friends out just to try and get ahead in life.

    General Commenti love this song

    i used it as an example to one of my friends when she had gotten in a fight with her best friend and thats what i think its about.

    that you should never forget who your friends are and you should try to help them anyway you can. when you get in fights and all you can do is talk about how angry you are it'll never get better.
