Up to my ears in bitter tears
Can't believe I've sunk this low
As I walk the plankton inner sanctum
Got outta Dodge, sailed on a bon-less bon voyage
You said North, I headed South, tossed overboard
Good Lord, that's a really large mouth

I'm sleepin' with fishes here
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm highly nutritious here
(In the belly of the whale)
Bad food, lousy atmosphere
(I don't wanna bellyache)
How long is this gonna take?

Woke up this mornin' kinda blue
Thinking through that age-old question
"How to exit a whale's digestion?"
It might behoove me to be heaved
Head out like a human comet

{Guys, you might not wanna rhyme with comet!}

I'm sleepin' with fishes here
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm highly nutritious here
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm ready to reappear
(I don't wanna bellyache)
Lord, how long is this gonna take?

End times, they come rollin' around
Enzymes, they come breakin' us down to the core
The good Lord grants, we all get a second chance

I'm one of the dishes here
(In the belly of the whale)
They say I'm delicious here
(In the belly of the whale)
Lord, please make him chuck it all
(It's a gut call)
In the belly of the whale

I'm in the belly of the whale
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm in the belly
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm in the belly of the whale
(In the belly of the whale)
I'm in the belly

In the belly of the whale, in an underwater jail
It's a tight squeeze, it's a-gettin' to me
But it's roomier than the tail
Hey, sailor, got my flow free
Like a salmon to the sea
From the L.A. Symphony

I'm a paddle boat paddlin' in their wake
A fake free-styler but my unemployment pays
I'm avoiding cliches like "Whale of a tale"
Say or "You can't keep a good man down"
'Cause you can and I've been there, man
But I've been expectorated, I'm elated!
I'm free like Willie! Happy Day!
Oops, that's a bit of a cliche

In the belly of the whale
(In the belly)
In the belly of the whale
(In the belly, in the belly of the whale)
In the belly of the whale
(In the belly, in the belly of the whale)
