Whale Of A Tale
by SALT SEA PIRATES

One, two, three, four

I got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads
A whale of a tale or two
About the flappin' fish and the girls I've loved
On nights like this with the moon above
A whale of a tale and it's all true
I swear by my tattoo

There was Mermaid Minnie, met her down in Madagascar
She would kiss me, any time that I would ask her
Then one evening her flame of love blew out
Well blow me down and pick me up!
She swapped me for a trout

Got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads
A whale of a tale or two
About the flappin' fish and the girls I've loved
On nights like this with the moon above
A whale of a tale and it's all true
I swear by my tattoo

There was Typhoon Tessie, I met her off the coast of Java
When she kissed me I bubbled up like molten lava
Then she gave me the scare of my young life
Well blow me down and pick me up!
She was the captain's wife

Got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads
A whale of a tale or two
About the flappin' fish and the girls I've loved
On nights like this with the moon above
A whale of a tale and it's all true
I swear by my tattoo

Whistling

There was Hurricane Hannah, with a look that spelled out danger
She made me quiver, when she whispered "I'm yours stranger"
I bought her trinkets that sailors can't afford
And when I spent my last red cent
She tossed me overboard!

Got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads
A whale of a tale or two
About the flappin' fish and the girls I've loved
On nights like this with the moon above
A whale of a tale and it's all true
I swear by my tattoo
