TUNE

IN FRISCO BAY THERE LIVED A WHALE, THEY FED HER OYSTERS BY THE PAIL,
BY BATHTUB BY TEACUP, BY THIMBLE AND BY SCHOONER. HER NAME WAS SARA
AND WHEN SHE SMILES, SHE JUST SHOWED TEETH FOR MILES AND MILES.
AND TONSILS AND SPARERIBS AND THINGS TOO FIERCE TO MENTION
ONE DAY SHE SAILED AWAY TO BERLIN, SHE SAILED AWAY ON THE HEAD OF A
PIN, ON A LAWNMOWER, ON A POGO-STICK AND THINGS THAT TAKE TO WATER.
FROM THAT DAY ON THEY NEVER HEARD A WORD. FROM THAT DAY ON, NEVER
HEARD A WORD, OR A POSTCARD, OR A TELEGRAM OR EVEN LITTLE BUBBLES.
GLUB GLUB
