'Cause 1 is never enough.

Limited for time here, I'll just put up one I made a long time ago...

WALTZING MATILDA
"Docidicus Gigas"

Once a jolly Humboldt in Mexico's Sea of Cortez
Saw a guy named Alex Kerstich in the sea
He called his buddies over to goggle at the big food source
Yelling, "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free."

Docidicus Gigas, Docidicus Gigas,
Jumbo Squid, Humboldt Squid, what a ceph to see,
He called his buddies over to goggle at the food source
Yelling "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free!"

That humboldt, and two of his friends, they grabbed that diver very fast,
They dragged him down right close to the bottom of the sea,
Tearing off his diving gauge and Pre-Columbian gold chain,
Yelling, "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free."

Docidicus Gigas, Docidicus Gigas,
Jumbo Squid, Humboldt Squid, what a ceph to see,
Tearing off his diving gauge and Pre-Columbian gold chain,
Yelling "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free!"

Alex only barely escaped from the mass of tentacles,
From a trio of voracious humboldts living in Mexico's sea,
And if you are a diver, who jumps into the Sea of Cortez,
They'll yell, "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free!"

Docidicus Gigas, Docidicus Gigas,
Jumbo Squid, Humboldt Squid, what a ceph to see,
And if you are a diver, who jumps into the Sea of Cortez,
They'll yell, "All of you humboldts, here's some food for free!"

DG, this is great :lol: Would you swim in the Sea of Cortez? Friends and I went swimming and snorkeling there almost two years ago, the water was very cold but we didn't see any squid. Anemones, sea stars, bony fish, sea lions, but not Humboldts. Lunch was very yummy fish tacos, and now I want to go back!

Doom on you, DG!! I just got all those crappy Australia songs out of my head. Guess all you are gonna do Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees and Tie Me Kangaroo Down Parodies now to annoy me, as I will be forced to watch this article since I have nothing better to do. :periscop:

DG - you are :evil:

DG, you've gotten it stuck in our heads, we'll all be waltzing humboldts all weekend.

Maybe you should get some Australian songs to parody just for Nick :twisted:

Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees

I've been around the world a couple times or maybe more.
I've seen the sights and had delights on every foreign shore
But when me mates all ask me the place that I adore,
I tell them right away...

(Chorus)
Give me a home among the gum trees,
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two and a kangaroo
Clothesline out the back, verando round the front
And an old, rocking chair.
(Chorus)

You can see me in the kitchen, cooking up a roast
or vegemite on toast :yuck:
Just you and me and a cup o' tea
Later on we'll settle down and mull up on the porch
And watch the possums play

(Chorus)

There's a Woolworths down the corner and a safeway down the street,
A new ones just been opened were the regulate the heat,
Oh but what I wouldn't give for a simple bush retreat,
Where the Kookaburras call (woo loo loo loo)

(Chorus)

Some people like their houses with fences all around.
Others live in mansions, some beneath the ground,
But me I love the bush, you know with rabbits runnin' round,
And a pumpkin vine out back

(Chorus)

Crap, why did I just do that? I also have about eight or nine songs more embedded in my brain,(been that way for three months now) which will eventually be posted since I am bored out of my very, very, thick skull.
Off to go hit my head against something hard. (Please be gentle with the parodies)

Kookaburra

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra
Laugh, Kookaburra
Gay your life must be

Kookaburra sits on the electric wire
Hopping up and down with his pants on fire
Ouch, kookaburra
Ouch, kookaburra
Hot your pants must be.


I am bored, very bored.

Well, Nick, let's ruin your life a bit, shall we?

GIVE ME AN ARCHITEUTHIS
Tune: "Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees"

I've been around this world a couple times or more,
Seen architeuthids wash up upon every foreign shore,
But when a guy came with a halibut, I kicked him out the door
'Cuz I like squid....

CHORUS
Give me an Architeuthis,
A Mesonychoteuthis,
A Palei with a paley eye
A Humboldt in one tank, a GPO in the other,
And half a dozen plates o' calamari.

You can see me trawlin' through the sea, catching up some squiddies,
Just me, a bet, and a very big net,
Later we'll dissect 'em and then deep-fry 'em up,
And devour them right quick!

CHORUS

There's an Architeuthis crawlin' up your back
He's about to eat what's in your head for his noontime snack
Unless I give him a nice hard whack
With my large, dead cat!

Chorus

Some morons like their houses, with their yards all around,
Some morons even will live 60 meteres underground,
But I live underwater, where ya never hear the sound
Of monkeys flinging dung!

Chorus

(Dunno why I put in that last line.)

More torment... muahahahahaha

O. VULGARIS
To the tune of: "Kookabura"

O. Vulgaris sits in the coral bed
Grabbing very stupid crabs and biting off their heads
Bite, O. Vulgaris,
Bite, O. Vulgaris,
Kill crusteceans!

O. Vulgaris sits in the tank, sleep-ers,
Plotting how to kill his keepers,
Kill, O. Vulgaris,
Kill, O. Vulgaris,
Teach 'em to imprison you!

The Kiwi's love it. Can't figure out why, made me throw up a bit when I tried it. There's also marmite, a sweeter yet still disgusting brown, sticky paste.

Not every Kiwi likes Vegimite, I don't even like Marmite or for you English types Bovril (which is kinda similar to Marmite!) Methinks we've had this discussion someplace else???????
