Whale Mountain looked like a whale
Large and round with a waterspout trail
Made of pine tree upside down
So it looked like a spout shooting off of the ground
The ground on top of Whale Mountain that is

Whale Mountain looks like a whale
A curved piece of rock looked just like its tail
When the earth quaked
That tail did shake
And it looked like the whale was swimming
The whale mountain, I mean, was swimming

Drop it all if you want to
I’ll see you in the afternoon
Put the past behind you
What a strange cartoon
If it all falls apart though
Someone says “I told you so”
Don’t listen to them, throw a coin in the fountain
And meet your old friends on the top of Whale Mountain
Whale Mountain is where we’ll go

He had a band and practice space
A studio with microphones
So it’s no wonder you’ve written songs that everyone knows
You had an agent, a gig, a promo photograph to make it all come together
So you trade a sweatshirt in for leather
You can’t be a shepherd if you don’t have a flock
You can’t wear the shoe unless you put on the sock
There’s nothing to do but trade your stock
No you can’t start the spark without a rock
And you can’t start a spark without a rock
