The Lyrics

I was at Sea World, & a musical act did the song right, except for the line about Shamu, so I decided to do the rest of the song to match that line.
Now listen here.

I was in San Diego,
I went to Sea World yesterday,
They have big killer whales,
Everybody gets splashed every day.

So dive in the pond,
And bring me a pearl,
The oysters are raw,
So tell us what we saw,
So tell us what we saw,
You're aquarium guide.

The dolphins take flight,
Act like they're skiing
There's something about Shamu,
That makes you wet!

What do otters eat,
Abalone!
What do seals do,
They spin the ball,
What else can they do,
They slip and slide.

So dive in the pond,
And bring me a pearl,
The oysters are raw,
So tell us what we saw,
So tell us what we saw,
You're aquarium guide.

The sea lions fight,
They're dressed like cowboys,
There's something about Shamu,
That makes you wet!

What do otters eat,
Abalone!
What do seals do,
They spin the ball,
What else can they do,
They slip and slide.
What do otters eat,
Abalone!

What do seals do,
They spin the ball,
What else can they do, babe,
They slip and slide.

The pirates are there,
They dive like a cartwheel,
Their moves are so clown,
They're spinning all around,
They're spinning all around,

So dive in the pond,
And bring me a pearl,
Then tell us what we saw,
Then tell us what we saw,

You're aquarium guide.
I know Old Man Ribber will always be my #1 fan here! :)

Fred - Count on it. In The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Universe series, the dolphins were extremely intelligent extra-terrestrials and desperately trying to communicate with humans about the impending doom of Earth by leaping out of the water and performing difficult acrobatics. Their most spectacular stunt actually meant "Good-bye, and thanks for all the fish!". ;D
