The Lyrics

there i sat in science class, hopin' for an "A"
but tired of learnin' chromosomes and genes
teacher brought a manatee, thought that rather strange
to cut this creature seemed a bit obscene
i pulled out my knife and carved him up like a banana
turnin' pale as body fluids oozed, yeah
distressed flippers slappin' time
lots of blood, but i don't mind
pulled out every organ that i knew

i forgot my lunch that day, there was nothin' there to chew
nothin' but this dirty sea cow's spleen
lord, my gut was growlin' loud and so i had to choose
i thought it looked good enough to eat
so i ate the spleen of my manatee

from the warmth of miami, to the colorado slush
sea cows like hot weather i've been told
with change in the climate, i think this big boy's done
its over, baby, i guess it just got too cold
that day inside the classroom, i felt him slip away
i kept lookin' for his spleen and i finally found it
and i'll be real sick tomorrow, from the lunch i ate today
i guess i must have been out of my mind

autopsy's another word for nothin' left to lose
nothin's in the creature's cavity
that damn thing was greasy , lord, but i began to chew
i thought it looked good enough to eat
so i ate the spleen of my manatee

la la la la la la manatee
no no no no no no no manatee

you can call him a sea cow, but i don't understand
it don't taste like a cow that you might find on the land , cmon
i ate sea cow , now, i ate a manatee's spleen, yeah
lordy lordy lordy lordy lordy lordy lordy lord
i got sick from my manatee

You get my 555 ingenious insanity award for this one! "Bobby McGee = My Manatee" - now that's the kind of title I would have liked to have come up with!
