The Lyrics

Once in your life you'll spot a
Whale that has wandered far from home
And next thing you know,
There's choppers overhead
Making his way through Trenton--
Maybe he was chasing some herring there
You only hope he'll swim back south, instead

When you get caught between the ocean and New Jersey
I know it's fishy, but it's true
If you get caught between the ocean and New Jersey
The best that you can do
The only thing to do, is hurry back home

Mr. Whale swims where he pleases
All of his life, he's known the sea
Deep in his heart he's just a great big fish
Went the wrong way up the Delaware
And said how the hell did I get here?
Wondering why the folks just line up and stare

If you get caught between the ocean and New Jersey
I know it's quite a fishy tale
If you get caught between the ocean and New Jersey
I really wish you well
I hope it turns out swell, if you're a whale

(Repeat first Chorus)

Reminds me of "Humphrey" the Humback, which got stuck in the CA delta a few years ago. The first line of the chorus really had me chuckiing.
