The Lyrics

Fact or Crap?

Pelicans know when to migrate together because they use a mind linking system called ‘Pelicanesis‘?

I must be stork/raven mad!

Can you read my mind bird brain?




You know? pelican - esis
Isn’t really a word
It’s for the birds

You know? pelican - esis
Is ‘playment’ on a word
It sounds absurd


Studies have shown
In flocks they have flown
Un-alone
Before men tooled stones
These birds of a feather
Are mind melded together


Believe me this
Ornithologists
Are running tests
But can only guess
They may be from Harvard
But they still are bewildered



RESEARCH TAKES PLACE
RESEARCH SAVE FACE



You know? pelican - esis
Is a newly ‘fledged’ word
Has it been heard?


You know? pelican - esis
Is a malaprop word
Formed like a turd

Try as I will
I’ll keep sounding shrill
What the hell?
Does it fit the bill?
Is it just baloney?
Do I sound like a phoney?
Findings are meager
I’m sure they are beleaguered



RESEARCH TAKES PLACE
RESEARCH SAVE FACE
RESEARCH DISGRACED

RESEARCH MAKE HASTE

Lionel - Light as a feather. In Bobby Darin's rendition of Talk To The Animals, he actually rhymes "speak pelican" with "like hell he can!". Nice song and wicked puns. ;D
