Fish Head Stew

Sneaky Sperm Whale

Fish Head Stew

Everybody cry for the stripper of the sea
Feeling so entitled to his fishing industry
Now he has to find another way to stay afloat
Rightful owner started fishing underneath his boat

How did all the codfish ever just belong to you?
Stripping bare the ocean isn’t very nice to do
Now the rightful owners come to make you pay your due
Please enjoy the fish heads, maybe you can make a stew!

Everybody cry for the fishing nets and gear
Whales are bending hooks and it’s increasing every year
50 tonnes of whale and they’re coming here to teach
Notice all the sea lions up starving on the beach

Everybody cry for the empty-handed kid
Fishing out the oceans leaving jellyfish and squid
You can make a chowder from the bait that’s in your pail
School is now in session and your teacher is a whale!

Freedom Chase off Hawaii’s Big Island

Chase for Freedom

Chase for Freedom

Near ten days they chased that whale
His trumpet sounding through the gale
The bow was chopping caps of white
We saw them glowing in the night

A starboard moon splashed the horizon
Hard to port, the sun came risin’
Ropes at ready, one man stood
Raised a long pole sharp ‘n good

Braced against the bounding main
Through the swells took steady aim
And when that whale was well in reach
Just before his mighty breach

The long boat pulled up along side
Of a whale ten days had cried
Boatswain gave a mighty shove
Blade on pole cut deep for love

Soon thereafter he was free
Just as every whale should be
No more ropes and traps and trash
Down came flukes with thunderous crash

Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
Cutting whales loose feels the best
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Returned that whale from whence he’d come!
