20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954 film)A Whale of a Tale

CHORUS
Got a whale of a tale to tell ya, lads
A whale of a tale or two
'Bout 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

VERSE 1
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
Blow me down and pick me up!
She swapped me for a trout

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 2
There was Typhoon Tessie, met her on the coast of Java
When we kissed I bubbled up like molten lava
Then she gave me the scare of my young life
Blow me down and pick me up!
She was the captain’s wife

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 3
There was Harpoon Hannah, had a face that made you shutter
Lips like fish hooks and a nose just like a rudder
If I kissed her and held her tenderly (Held her tenderly)
There’s no sea monster big enough
To ever frighten me!

REPEAT CHORUS
