"The Lobster Quadrille" (also known as "The Mock Turtle's Song" or "Will You, Won't You Join the Dance?") is a nonsense poem by the British author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. It was first published in 1865 as part of Carroll's children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It appears in the tenth chapter of the novel, which is also called "The Lobster Quadrille".

In the tenth chapter of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon tell Alice that "The Lobster Quadrille" is the name of a dance which they used to perform when they were younger and went to school under the sea. Each of the participants in the dance take lobsters as partners and later throw the lobsters out to sea as far as they can. Although they have no lobsters with which to perform the dance, the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle attempt to demonstrate it to Alice, while the Mock Turtle sings the poem.
