Lyrics:

CRAB MAN
 I'm talkin' about devil crabs
 1'm talkin' about devil crabs
 I'm talkin' about de food I sells

She crab, she crab.

PORGY
On yo' way, brother.

 CRAB MAN
 Devil crab!

 MARIA
 Hey, crab man!

 CRAB MAN
 I'm talkin' about de food I sells
 When I done talkin' about de food I sells
 Talkin' about devil crab.
 (Maria picks crab, counts out money, pays Crab mon,
 who then leaves.)
 Now I's talkin' about yo' pocketbook
 I'm talkin' about devil crabs, she crab, she crab,
 Devil crab, I'm talkin' about de food I sells.
 (Bell chimes five times. - Looks at Porgy)
