Penguins freakin' out!
Penguins freakin' in!
Why? Because of the walrus invasion!
Swim, swim, swim but you sure can't hide!

A snack for a shark,
A meal for an eel,
Penguins flee and try to get free!
Flap on, brother, flap on!

Once the only creatures talking about eat-thy-penguin were the... orcas!

But it seems the walrus thinks those birds are tastier than... porkers!

Bird-predation,
Extermination,
Conflagration,
Walrus-rations,
Sanguination,
De-featheration,
Tusk-invasion of our nation,

WALRUS INTRUSION!

(Oh yeah) That's what the birds say today!
Hey hey!

The rate of kills is at an all-time high
Young birds waddle 'round tryin' hard not to die
The icebergs are red in the summer time

And oh...

The hunt goes on...

Ice-berg slidin'
Ice-floe ridin'
Seal patrols
Walrus holes

Layin' eggs upon the snow
Kids hatching, watch 'em go

Human beings just take pictures and watch everything

And the hunt goes on...

So round
And around
And around we go
Where the next tusk is
Nobody knows

( instrumental )

Oh Great Penguin Opus,
Can't you hear me talking to you?

IT'S A WALRUS INTRUSION!

(Oh yeah) That's what the birds say today!
Hey hey!

Fear in the air
Tension everywhere
Population dropping fast
The walrus is havin' a blast

And the only safe place to live is way inland at the South Pole Station

And the hunt goes on...

Eve of destruction
Bird reduction
Feather detectors
Kill collectors

Ice floes, in demand,
Far away from walrus land!

Penguincide
Too many kills
Birdies waddle to the hills

Penguins all over the land are shouting "End the hunt!"

But the hunt goes on...

( instrumental )

Great Penguin Opus,
Can't you hear me talking to you?

Sayin' ... WALRUS INTRUSION!
That's what the birds say today! Hey, hey!

Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'

Sayin' ... WALRUS INTRUSION!
That's what the birds say today! Hey, hey!

Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'
Let me hear ya'

Sayin' ... WALRUS INTRUSION!

I didn't know that about walruses and seals. Extremely good, Johnny. The music sets the words off..they're punchy (lack of a better word). 5's....at least

Very nice Johnny! Here's an interesting fact about penguins-they'll pick the weakest among them,then shove them off the rocks to test the water for sharks. .."peguincide" was cute,lol.
