"Thar She Blows"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

When that parody was written, the dogs, did they not laugh at it?

Herman? Herman, is that you?
Thar she blows
Thar she blows again
Call me Ishmael
We’re chasing the White Whale
On Pequod we set sail

Thar she blows
Thar she blows again
Starbuck, Stubb and Flask
And Queequeg on the task
“Hast seen it?” Ahab asks

Thar she blows
Thar she blows again
Sail the Pacific
Where Queequeg gets quite sick
But he recovers quick

Thar she blows
Thar she blows again
The Enderby
Sure did see
A big sperm whale recently
“Such madness!” Starbuck pleads
But Ahab won’t concede

Thar he throws
Then he throws again
To last I grapple thee
From Hell’s heart stab at thee
For hate’s sake spit at thee

Thar she blows
Thar she blows
Thar she blows

If you're not familiar with Moby Dick, the names and quotes won't mean much.

I haven't seen the movie or any of its remakes nor have I read the book but this is still really good because of the clever title sub.

Nice working of Melville...swellville! (caution: vague movie reference ahead- "...paging Mr. Herman, paging Mr. Herman..."). I really enjoy the 'classic lit' parodies, kind of like Sing-along Cliff Notes.

Awesome parody! Love all the specific references to the book that I so ambitiously bought in sixth grade and never finished. (I read the Young Classics adaptation in its entirety, but that hardly counts...) I especially dig the "stab at thee" / "spit at thee" part, given my extreme fondness for "The Wrath of Khan"! 555
