The Lyrics

Ok I'm back with another trilogy of Dick songs. Why's everybody looking at me like that? I'm talking about MOBY Dick songs. Get your minds out of the gutter. This is about Classic Literature .... now get out of here, you chuckleheads
We went out to kill Moby
My crazed captain and me
Around the whole damn globe we did roam
Prepping all night
Attacked at first light
Well, the Pequod's broke up
I wanna go home

So hoist down the harpoon boats
See how the white whale acts
Gawk at the captain in horror, let me go home
I wanna go home
Why dont you let me go home
Oh, the Pequod's broke up
I wanna go home

Well, the first mate he got tossed
Our whaling profits are lost
A coffin it did pop up; ride it away
Spearman Dagoo
Why dint you run his ass through, yeah, yeah
Well the Pequod's broke up
I'll never get home

So check out the Pequod's sail
See how the main mast fell
Stove in by Moby starboard, let me go home
Let me go home (let me go home)
I wanna go home (let me go home)
Why dont you let me go home
Oh, the Pequod's broke up
I'll never get home

The creature he kept it real
And slammed into Pequod's keel
Then he went and smashed up all of our boats
Let me go home
How will I ever get home
This is the worst hunt, I've ever been on

So look for the Rachel's sail
See if her Captain forgives
Although the Pequod's abhorred, let me go home
I wanna go home (let me go home)
When will I ever get home

(And now for something completely different)

Ahab, Ahab what went wrong (Oh, so wrong)
You stalked the white whale for too long
I never thought a guy could cry
Then I saw you lashed to Moby's side
Oh, Ahab, should have left him alone (You're so mad)

Ahab, Ahab, dont lose your head
Stop now before we all wind up dead
I cant see why you're stalking him
It wont bring back your missing limb
Oh Ahab, Ahab leave him alone
(You're so mad)

Ahab, you shouldn't obsess like that
Moby can swat us all down like gnats (that ain't no bull)
The furthest thing from my mind
Was to see us all dumped in brine
Cause Ahab, wouldn't leave it alone

Ahab, Ahab, leave him alone (You're so mad)
Ahab, Ahab, leave him alone (You're so mad)

(And now, for one last effort to complete the trilogy, for what is a trilogy without its three parts ... from Help me Rhonda)

Well since he lost his leg ol' Ahab's goin' out of his mind
He stalks the deck at night, his wood peg just thumping time
Oh Starbuck, he's lost his mind
And we're hoping you'll grow a spine
And you will help us Starbuck
Help to get us out of this hunt

Oh, help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck Yeah!
Get us out of this hunt

We were gonna harvest oil and all of us would get a fee
But we let our unhinged captain lose his reason
And now our boat's debris
Oh Starbuck this aint no lie
If we press on, we're all gonna die
So wont you, help us Starbuck
Help to get us out of this hunt

Oh help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
" " " "
" " " "
(hey, my back's killing me, cut me some slack)
" " " "
" " " "
Help us Starbuck, help help us Starbuck
Help us Starbuck, yeah
Get us out of this hunt

Wonderful effort. Three parodies in one. Especially liked to use the account of one maritime calamity to tell another. Here is my take on the same subject, one of my cloning songs from long ago: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/beachboys160.shtml Nice to see a parody using songs I know.

I saw yours, Patrick, while I was checking out all the Sloop John B parodies. I'll do that sometimes when I'm stuck on a parody; I'll see what others have done with the song ..... And to Jonathan, this makes my fourth thru sixth Moby Dick parodies. I think there's comedy gold matching Melville's ponderous novel with something daffy like the Beach Boys' "Wendy" or Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" (Call me Moby)
