  1. Whaler's Tale

From the album Take It And Break It

Lyrics

Whale of a Song
By Leo Rondeau

He had a whale bone for a leg
and a whale of a story that could explain
That involved a cannibal full of tattoos
And an albino beast that liked beating up fools

That dared to chase it around the world
Forsake a normal life and the company of a girl
All to ride on that big blue bitch
It might make you a hero but it’ll never make you rich

Captain Captain some me have abandoned
But I won’t hear any of it
Captain, captain I’ll go down chanting
Sea dittys about sunken ships

When your mind gets cluttered with too much land
And you can’t inhale without trying to understand
The way your lungs work every time you take a breath
And every little cough might mean certain death

And the mad hatters hat would look better on the ground
And you think it’s your duty to bring it on down
That’s when you know it’s time to set sail
It’s not the capture it’s the chase of the whale

Captain Captain some me have abandoned
But I won’t hear any of it
Captain, captain I’ll go down chanting
Sea dittys about sunken ships
