The Lyrics

My latest entry in the unofficial Amiright competition -- "If so and so had served as crew members on the Pequod"
Spout, spout, Moby's about
And this is a thing that I'm quailing about
C'mon, I'm talking to you, c'mon

Spout, spout, Moby's about
And this is a quest we can do without
Ahab, I'm talking to you, Ahab

In whaling times
You shouldn't have to lose your boat
It's gone from sight
A coffin's only thing to float
Your one track mind
It took away a working leg
Obsessed at night
You shouldn't ought to THUMP your peg
We shouldn't hear your THUMP-ing peg

Spout, Spout, get us all out
And this is a hunt I'm beginning to doubt
Starbucks, I'm talking to you, Starbucks

He snuffed your life
And in the end you stabbed from hell
He's ghastly white
And I alone will tell thee tale
I hope you call me Ish-mael

Spout, spout, Moby's no trout
And these are the skiffs that he's tossing about
C'mon, he's stalking the crew, c'mon

Shout, shout, get us all out
Cause this is a hunt that's turned into a rout
Starbucks, we're talking to you, Starbucks

Spout, spout, wiping us out
And this is a whale that has scored a knockout
Moby, you've knocked us askew, Moby

And when you're aiming for Pequod
With Ahab intertwined
You'd really like to break her bow
You really went and broke her bow

Spout, spout Moby's about
And this is a quest we should never have vowed
(He really went and broke the bow)
Ahab, we're squawking at you, Ahab

Spout, spout, Moby's no trout
And this is the thing that I'm writing about
(He really went and broke the bow)
Moby, I'm awe-struck at you, Moby
