lyrics

Well Gregory Samson was a pilot flyin' high above the sea
His engine wasn't quite behavin' appropriately
His plane went down a hundred miles off the coast of Tripoli
Singin' ee dee bee ee dee bee dee

a million years later in the belly of a whale
The only thing left from his plane was a piece of the tail
Greg Samson hunkered down and he started to wail
Singin' ale dale bale ale dale bale dale

Well Gregory Samson did see somethin' towards him start to walk
An old man who had long ago forgotten how to talk
He said "unh gonh guh skreekung ung gebung gih gibbeh gock"
Singin' ock dock bock ock dock bock dock

Greg Samson grabbed that nasty man and threw him to the ground
The old man lay there motionless and didn't make no sound
So Greg Samson hid the body where it would never be found
Singin' ound dound bound ound dound bound dound

Well the years went past and Gregory lived them day by day
He survived on kelp and crabs and fish that came his way
He started to suspect that in this whale he would always stay
Singin' ay day bay ay day bay day

Well late one night when Gregory had turned old and grey and frail
came some wreckage that appeared to be a rusty airplane's tail
And from inside the metal came the sound of an old familiar wail
Singin' ale dale bale ale dale bale dale

Greg Samson staggered to his feet and found the strength to walk
He wasn't sure if he still knew the proper way to talk
he tried to say "i've found the secret to undo this wicked lock"
Singin' ock dock bock ock dock bock dock

The stranger grabbed Greg Samson and threw him to the ground
And Greg Samson had a quiet death and didn't make no sound
But before he went he realized that his soul would ne'er be found
Singin' ound dound bound ound dound bound dound
