The Lyrics

Another master penguin creation...
You think your going nowhere
When you're going to the antarctic
You think its un-inhabited
Because it is so cold

Why you wanna be like that
As if theres nothin'new
You're not foolin' no one
You're not even fooling you

So look a little closer
And open up your eyes
You may see some black and white
and fat things passing by

What are these strange things?
they can't even fly.
What are these cute things?
There are penguins in your sight!

(So) Why Not (why not)
Adopt a penguin now
Why not (why not)
"Cuz I'm telling you how
If you like the cold
And you like black and white
So....why not
Why not

Why Not adopt a penguin [X2]

You always dress in purple
When you want to dress in black
Instead of listening to your heart
You're gonna get a smack

You keeping waiting in the sun
For what you'll never know
Lets just get in to the boat
And adopt a penguin from the snow


Penguins are the things for you
Maybe yes
Maybe no
It is the thing to do

What Im saying is
You gotta waddle, yo!

You'll never get to hawaii
Or even to Mexico
If you don't believe in Penguins!

Why not
Get a penguin today
Why not
too bad they don't fly
It will take a little
And probably not a lot
But...why not
Why not
