On the subject of Random Penguin…

This is a silly little song I wrote a little while ago after my friend suggested writing something about penguins. It’s recorded, but I want to record the vocals again – I’m not quite happy with them yet!


Penguin! Penguin! Penguin!

Ba-da-da-daa, da-da-daa…

They’re coloured black and white,
Don’t mind the cold at all,
They eat members of schools,
But they’re not cannibals.
(Oh yeah, yeah, yeah!)

They’re always dressed in tails
And huddle up for heat.
They’re used to icy gales
And mate on icy sheets.
(Ooh yeah! *silly voice*)

Penguin! Penguin! Penguin!

Get back in the sea!

You’re a bird that can’t fly.
When the ice melts you’ll die.
Don’t breathe fishy breath on me!

They like to live in guano,
But don’t think it’s the slums.
They don’t like mecchano,
‘Cos they’ve got no thumbs.
(I’ve got opposable ones.)

With breeds like macaroni
You might think they’re tasty,
But the Emperor penguin
Banned penguin pastries.
(So there!)

Penguin! Penguin! Penguin!

Get back in the sea!

You’re a bird that can’t fly.
When the ice melts you’ll die.
Don’t breathe fishy breath on me!
(Or I’ll have you for tea)!
