The Lyrics

A 26 foot long giant squid was recently photographed in the Pacific.
Architeuthis, you are the subject of legends
us humans you're hedgin' and I know why
Oh, you're a smart one
All twenty and six feet of you
Photographers love you cause you're hard to find

Don't you take the bait they dangle, boy
They'll snag you if they're able
You know the ocean depths are always your best bet
And you fight like hell to get away
From their shiny, cold steel cable
And you lost a tentacle, but you live yet

Architeuthis, they say some of you are longer
The whales tend to hunger for your tender flesh
And freedom, sweet freedom, well you just keep on swimmin'
You're not surface skimmin' cause you must stay deep

Don't you find it hard to move sometimes?
Your tentacles are a sight sublime
Your eyes look really awesome on your head
You're very big but you ain't slow
And I hope that helps you not to wind up dead

Architeuthis, I know you've got some defenses
You've got lots of senses, and they are innate
You're in the ocean, and we are living above you
You're not letting us catch sight of you
But that is okay

I guess even writing a song about a squid is worth a high rating. Merry and Pippin did three songs (that I know of) about flatworms, but this may top even that. Here's hoping your squid song gets you lots more good ink.

Very good Royce, didn't know squid were called Architeuthis. Where do you get your news articles?

I only have five'tacles to give. Quite the al'arm'ing parody. A bit salty but not too fishy.

Thanks, and Red Ant, I read the Fox News internet quite a bit--and of course Fox News on tv.

Royce, this is one of the two best squid parodies on AmIRight (Johnny D also did one). I commend you for your research and the vision of freedom that you create.
