The Blind Shrimp and the Goby


I do not see well

I have not the gift of sight

Oh who will help me?


I am not safe here

I have no home of my own

Where am I to live?


I do not have sight

But I can dig great big holes

Will you be my eyes?


I can’t make a home

But I can see the dangers

I will protect you


Together we live

In a harmony of two

Safe and sound we are


Swift be swift dear Shrimp

For the predators have come

Hide go hide yourself


Oh Goby oh friend

Swim into the hole I dug

Be safe so safe friend


We are still but two

But apart we are not well

One needs the other


Goby is my eyes

Keeping me safe from harm’s way

And guarding my life


Blind Shrimp is my help

Building a home for us both

So we may be safe


Yes forever friends

The Blind Shrimp and the Goby

Together we live
