The bottle-nosed whale is a furlong long and likewise wise
But headstrong strong
And he sings this very lugubrious song
As he sails through the great Arctic Ocean Blue

Oh why do I swim through seas antarctical? Oooo....
Freezing cold in every particle Oooo....
Some porpoises invited me to come and join their school
They brought me here and then swam away, and shouted April Fool!
If I ever catch that school of porpoises Oooo....
They won't get no Habeas Corpuses Oooo....
I'm lost and alone in a frozen zone and I' almost frozen too
A shivering, quivering bottle-nosed whale
The bottle-nosed whale with the flu...
ch oo-ch oo-ch oo-ah Tshcoo....(Sneezing noises)

Oh I used to play like a gay Leviathan
ugh huh huh huh... huh huh huh
Squirting up jets like a soda siphon Whooosh!
Now every time I try to life my hanky to my nose
A great harpoon goes whistling by, to a shout of "There she blows!"

I like my oceans equatorial Oooo....
Where the water's warm and the breeze lass Boreal Oooo....
It's Fahrenheit minus twenty-nine, and I don't know what to do.
A rubbery, Blubbery bottle-nosed whale,
The bottle-nosed whale with the flu...
ch oo-ch oo-ch oo-ah Tshcoo....(Sneezing noises)

The bottle-nosed whale is a furlong long and likewise wise
But headstrong strong
And he sings this very lugubrious song
As he sails through the Ocean Blue.

Though red your nose, though your toes are froze, Though cold it seems to you
Remember the tale of the bottle-nosed whale
Who has not even got his own hot water bot,
The bottle-nosed whale with the flu...
