There's an ancient legend
An oceanic tale
An underwater monster not a fish and not a whale
It isn't quite a creature
It isn't quite machine
And you won't know what hit you 'til you hear your crewmen scream!

Down below the ocean
It's waiting in the dark
When there's stormy weather it will tear your ship apart
Its tentacles are massive
Its teeth are made of steel
You may call it myth, but I assure you that it's real!

When the waves come rolling in, and lightning fills the sky,
All the sailors know that the leviathan is nigh!
If he grabs onto your boat, he'll never let you go--
Soon you'll join a thousand ships he's sent to the depths below!

A body made of metal
But with a living brain
Survivors who have told of it have all been called insane
But many ships have vanished
They've gone without a word
Perhaps the stories that these sailors tell aren't that absurd!

So if you sail the ocean
Stay always on your guard
Or you may wind up lifeless when that monster hits you hard
He'll wrap himself around you
You'll wish that you weren't born
So if this beast attacks you please don't say that you weren't warned!

When the waves come rolling in, and lightning fills the sky,
All the sailors know that the leviathan is nigh!
If he grabs onto your boat, he'll never let you go--
Soon you'll join a thousand ships he's sent to the depths below!

When the waves come rolling in, and lightning fills the sky,
All the sailors know that the leviathan is nigh!
If he grabs onto your boat, he'll never let you go--
Soon you'll join a thousand ships he's sent to the depths be...

(One! Two! Three! Four!)

...low!
