Blubber

This song is based on an actual incident

Upon a beach in merry Oregon
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
There died a whale that weighed eight ton
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The whale did span ful five and forty feet
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
And raised a stench no one could beat
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

Oh who will come and save us from this stink?
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
The Highway Engineers, we think.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The engineers came quickly without fail
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
But couldn't budge the eight ton whale.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

One engineer surveyed the dismal sight
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
And then suggested dynamite.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

They'd blow that whale to fragments very small
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
Then leave the gulls to eat it all
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

So half a ton of merry dynamite
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
That crew piled up and did ignite.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The whale exploded in a blast of flame
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
The watchers cheered to see the same.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

As we all know, it really doesn't do
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
To disregard what Newton knew.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The watchers turned to flee the deadly hail
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
Of tank-sized chunks of blown up whale.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The blubber splattered objects near and far
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
It crushed the top of someone's car.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The peices rained down over land and sea
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
While cam'ras caught it for T.V.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

The fetid whale meat covered half a mile
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
And made that beach smell really vile.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

...to a bit from Kilkeyy, Ireland. by way of Kilkenny...
There was whale on the beaches
And whale on the cars
And gen'rally, whale everywhere...

What gulls remained were in a state of shock
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
To eat THAT mess would take a Roc!.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

Just what was done to clean up from the show
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
I must confess I do not know.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.

But there are those who'd pay them quite a fee
With a hey and a hi and a merry merry-o
To go clean Washington, DC.
With a hey and a hi and a ho.
