The Lyrics

Only the Moby

Chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!
Huge wha-wha-wha-wha-wha-whale
Blow-ow-ow-ow-owhole
Only the Moby.

Only the Moby (chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!)
Is the sperm whale that is white (huge wha-wha-wha-wha-wha-whale)
Only the Moby (chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!)
Is one willing to fight (chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!)

He's not a baby,
In fact his heart,
Nearly the size of
A midsize car.

But only the Moby
Is prized
By guy,
Lost bone below knee.

Chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!
Huge wha-wha-wha-wha-wha-whale
Blow-ow-ow-ow-owhole
Only the Moby.

Only the Moby
Bit old Ahab's leg in two.
Only the Moby
Is the size of a choo-choo.

"Slay ye tomorrow!"
Old Ahab rants.
Then, to his sorrow,
Old Moby rams—and the ship breaks
And sinks in the whale's wake,
Foaming from Moby.

Chum-chum-chum-chummy goo, blah!

Hmmm...wonder what today's theme is. I don't know how you do it, John. But you do it very well.

You must be from Chernobyl or Three Mile Island. Two brains and three or four extra hands to write so much great stuff. High 5's

Ol' Moby Dick was a sperm whale, wasn't he? It took a lot of seamen to put him in his place, I guess.

I don't know the original all that well, but this parody was pretty good. I also give a "high 5". ;)

Good one, John. Save the whale parodies! And the baby seal parodies!

Nobody listens to techno! Oh, not that Moby. And Admiral, it's not just the whales, it's the water!

Nice job, JB...5's...And I'm glad you didn't make fun of Moby's d*ck, he's very sensitive about it, y'know...
