"Shoo, Dugong, You're Free!"

The Lyrics

Sirenia: order of aquatic mammals that includes the dugong, manatee, and sea cow (Seekuh [ZAY-koo] in German). Stockholm Syndrome: identification with a captor
The aquarium smells strongly vile;
It has not been cleaned in a long while.
Liberate sirenian and smile--
Shoo, dugong, you're free!

The beast too long has been living here;
Of the open waters it has fear,
So I swat it gently on the rear--
Shoo, dugong, you're free!

It's got Stockholm Syndrome, beaucoup;
In Bonn it's related to Seekuh.

To the ocean flows a swirling drain
That has sucked it to the bounding main.
Homesick, it looks back, through the glass pane--
Shoo, dugong, you're free!

John, your vocabulary never ceases to amaze me, and that is just the English. How many languages do you know/speak?

Thanks, Max, Red Ant--I know only English. I'm familiar un peu with French (took it years ago), un poquito with EspaƱol (two semesters, but I've got an unabridged dictionary), and eine kleine bischen with German (but my wife's fluent, so I cheated on the "Hessian" parody I did a while ago).
