Sitting on the shore making blues of night and day
When I saw a flock of pelicans flying my way
Their way of life just flat put me to shame
With my primate limbs felt just a bit lame

Bested, bested by pelicans
Bested, bested by pelicans

Graceful in flight and with untold might
They show me up both day and night
Thought i was cool but now see I'm a fool
As my skin burns red in the afternoon sun

Bested, bested by pelicans
Bested, bested by pelicans

Thought my snack bar shrimp cocktail was very tasty
But now see you swooping down all in your glory
For a beakful of mackerel and snapper
My cheese food stuff now stuck to the wrapper

Originus Genus Pelicanus

Bested, bested by pelicans
Bested, bested by pelicans
