The Lyrics

Tell me Greenpeace what to do
I think I'm being protected by you
Defend me from those predators
Who want to make me extinct
Or make of me a circus freak
I'm sure you're on my side
I confess I'm a species wanting to survive
And your intellect's a match for this will of mine

Chorus:
All I want is a little protection
And you know I can tip the scales
I'm just using my mammal attraction-
I'm a typical whale, a typical whale

Your love of nature I embrace
and your defense has helped my case
I've had some trouble with harpoons
Something about gain and greed
Makes them want the blubber from me
Hey greenpeace, gotta hear me when I wail
Oh I'll breach for you and my tail I'll slap
And I know when you're close
You'll save me from their trap

Let me show you my tail extension
Hear the slapping of my tail
I'm just using my mammal attraction
I'm a typical whale, a typical whale

So put those hooks aside
Give me space and let me fly
Through the water I'll breach and spin
Through the water I'll breach and spin

All I want is a little protection
And you know I can tip the scale
I'm just using my mammal attraction
I'm a typical whale, a typical whale

Royce, this parody made me think of the belugas at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. They are so cool like this song.
