Tragic Ballad of the Elephant Seal

Lyrics “Tragic Ballad of the elephant seal”

There once was a girl
who had the whole world
and they gave her the name of sweet Lucy

She lived a life clean and bright
and her spirit was light
and she gave all her gold to the needy

Her karma was great
without an ounce of any hate
She was pure as a dove, this sweet Lucy

But one day darkness said,
“I’m coming into your bed”,
to carry away the sweet Lucy

Lucy died on that night,
in a terrible fright
and it came time for reincarnation

God made a mistake
What a spirit he’d break
when he mixed up her name with mean Penny

Mean Penny was vile
and her heart was defiled
and her fate was to be that of misery

Unfortunately,
for the sweet, sweet Lucy
She must live the sad life of mean Penny

And oh…..how she longed to be
a dolphin swimmin’ free in the sea
and oh….how she longed to be
splashin’ in the waves fancy free

Lucy said, “is this real?”
I’m an elephant seal!!!
And she cried on the beach for a lifetime!

She didn’t ask for a lot
but the beach, it was HOT
and she flailed in the sand to cool off

Flinging sand on her back
as she lay in a stack
of mean, nasty, noisy fat creatures

She tried to get away
but from how much she weighed,
she moved slow as a snail the poor Lucy

And oh……how she longed to be
a dolphin swimmin’ free in the sea
and oh….how she longed to be
splashin’ in the waves fancy free

She refused to be a mama
How she caused so much drama!
When she went against natural seal order!

The seals barked and moaned
in an ugly loud tone
and ostracized the poor Lucy

Lucy cried and she cried
until the day that she died
when a poacher showed Lucy no mercy

A harpoon pierced her skin
and it did her straight in
and the hunger took Lucy to market

Forever she’d burn
what a lonely black urn
as lamp oil for all of eternity!!! šŸ˜¦ šŸ˜¦ šŸ˜¦
