The Lyrics

'fore i die, and they lay me to rest
gonna hunt down that whale, to his death
yeah, that's sucker's gonna die
floatin' up, when i spear him in the side

floatin' up, when i spear him in the side
no more he 's gonna blow...when he dies
when he dies, they will call me the best
gonna hunt down that whale, to his death

prepared myself...a boat is a must
gonna sail the friendly breezes
when i go, that whale will die
ain't no way to mend him, when i spear him in the side

gonna mess him up when i spear him in the side
no more he 's gonna blow...when he dies
when he dies, they will call me the best
gonna hunt down that whale, to his death

never been a swimmer...never swim
i got a whale that teases
and you know he hopes i die
he wants to smash me up ?
i'll spear him in the side

won't mess me up...i'll spear him in the side
no more he 's gonna blow...when he dies
when he dies, they will call me the best
gonna hunt down that whale, to his death

Well if it isn't ol' Cap'n Ahab Rhodes... great idea, Alvin, perfectly executed (and good "I got a friend in Jesus" subs)

Not very sporting is it ....when you only need to go to the thames to find a whale, and they were half dead anyway, good parody though,better if it was about WALES! boyo

I thought this was going to be about an ancient rabbi who was speared in the side by a soldier in a famous old story ... but it's a fabulous whaling tale you wrote here, Cap'n Rhodes. 5s

"gonna sail the friendly breezes" :-). BTW: There's no guarantee that it will still be there when you (whoever you are) read this, but I mobylized my ass for a whale and found the original song here:
