lyrics

I’ll tell you the tale of the whale. C G
Who worried about his loud wail C Em
Because of its size F - Em self-conscious about having a big voice
His sorrowful sighs Dm C
Grew longer than his own whale tail! Bb Gsus-G

Since eight his voice gained sonar weight C G
He lost points for the echoes he ate C Em
He still can’t quite choose F - Em he’s always been this way. he can’t help it.
The sounds that he chews Dm - C
Cuz his mouth can just never wait Bb Gsus-G

And he sang the whale song. He sang it really well. C Bb
He sang the whale song just soft enough that they can barely tell. C Bb G

“Well, they’re gonna hear me everywhere. C G
My signal goes from here to there! C Em they’ll make fun of me. I’m embarrassed.
All through the week F - Em
It never gets weak Dm - C
No matter which earplugs I wear.” Bb Gsus-G

Oh whale, you poor thing with voice never sore! a little faster and harsher
With no effort your frequencies pour!
You’re the package, whole
So, clear out that blowhole!
Your sound waves will help you to soar!

So he sang the whale song. He sang it really well. C Bb
He sang the whale song just loud enough C Bb
that they could almost tell. G (to bridge)

mimmick whale progressions G Bb C





He’d write in waves all through the night D A keep faster tempo
’Til his melodies sounded just right D F#m
And at his last chord G - F#m
No one pulled the cord Em - D ritard
They crowned him the ocean’s first knight! C Asus- A

I am singing for peace can’t you see? D A slow
And to each whale he cast a small piece D F#m
It costs zero cents G - F#m
But makes perfect sense Em - D
To send ultra sounds through the sea. C Asus - A slow crescendo and

And they sang the whale song. They sang it really well. D C
They sang the whale song. Loud enough so everyone could tell. D C
They sang the whale song. Singing together, they sang it really well. D C
They sang the whale song. Loud enough so everyone could tell. D C
Loud enough so everyone could tell. A
Loud enough so everyone could tell. D E

He sang the whale song… A
oooh, oooh, oooh. G D E/B
