lyrics

Well, he was Captain Ahab and she his great white whale
All hands on deck he cried, to distant seas we sail
And the sailors on the ship were drunk from the keg
Oh Moby, for mercy you will beg.

So they made their way beyond, the snow, sleet and hail
Onwards he cried, we've got a giant mammal to impale
So through the blinding fog, the salt spray and gloom
Ahab caught a glimpse of fate and sailed towards his doom

Oh heave ho, heave ho
There she blows, shes chugging like a steam boat
Heave ho, Heave ho
Arm yourselves, a whaling we go.

So he would never stop until the beast was done
Ahab made his way, by staring into the sun
And all his faithful crew, thought him stark raving mad
Coz harpooning big ass whales was the greatest fun he ever had

Oh heave ho, heave ho
There she blows, shes chugging like a steam boat
Heave ho, Heave ho
Arm yourselves, a whaling we go.
Across the seven seas,
Fight the storm and breeze

Baton down the hatches
Theres a storm acoming
Faster me matees, shes getting away
Bring the thunder
And the lighting
You cant stop me
Oh Moby
'Captain behind you!'
Noooooooo

Whether its the horrors of the deep
Or the terrors of the skies above
There are 6 billion lonely souls
Braving the seas of love
But poor old lonely Ahab
He never got his wishes
Moby Dick sent him down
Now he's sleeping with the fishes
