Do the manta ray
Do the manta ray
Do the manta ray
Do the manta ray

Your head can go real screw
With saucers chasing you

Dance the manta ray
Dance the manta ray
Dance the manta ray
Dance the manta ray
Dance the manta ray

Your head can go real screw
With saucers chasing you

This don't swim
This fly, fly, c'mon

Your head can go real screw
With saucers chasing you

    General CommentIn an alternate universe, The Manta Ray is a part of that same upper echelon as The Twist, The Electric Slide, and The Macarena. Very popular at wedding receptions.

    General CommentFrank said his voice was slowed down in this song to give that weird vocal effect. But i only mention that as an excuse to say: this song is brilliant.

    My InterpretationFish don't swim, fish fly.
    Dance the manta ray to move like that. Man Ray is an unintented influence. The primary inspiration in the tailed flatfish, in an image viewed from underneath. the flying saucer is just another kind of movement on the same theme, which ends the song.
