    Big fish = important people
    little fish = unimportant people
    cardboard box= homeless people

    I think.

    Interesting, I guess..
    Though it's most likely to be push the trolley.

    If you look at the full lyrics, you will see that their are dance steps depicting these. e.g. stacking shelves from cardboard boxes and shopping with a trolley with a wonky wheel.
    "You can't dance like that!" - the song is saying, YES YOU CAN, you can dance to anything.
