The Lyrics

The famous exploding whale incident (eg http://hackstadt.com/features/whale/)
Blubber's in the air
everywhere I look around
Blubber's in the air.
Bits of whale coming down.
And I think that I've just been foolish
Used cases of TNT
But it stank and you'd better believe it
So we had to get it off the beach.

Blubber's in the air
Can't you smell it on the breeze?
Blubber's in the air
and it spatters on the sea.
And I don't know if I'm just dreaming,
Thought it can't happen, but
Over there is where I parked my Buick
Now it's under a half ton of guts.

Blubber's in the air
Blubber's in the air
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Blubber's in the air
Chunks are blocking out the sun.
Blubber's in the air
Panicked rubberneckers run.
And I'm coated in unknown fluid
I swear what I say is true
If you say "Thar she blows!" in my presence
Something brutal will happen to you.

Blubber's in the air
Blubber's in the air
Blubber's in the air
Blubber's in the air

I'm unfamiliar with the original, but the song is most amusing. Or as a friend says when I sing *my* Exploding Whale song: Fire in the Blowhole!!
