The Whale Song Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The sun was in clouds, the sun looked out
Exposed a trail of mist and spouts
Ships followed the ancient lead
Deceiving friends under the sea

Wow, imagine that
They won't fight back, I got a theory on that
A whale's heart is as big as a car
A whaler's thought must be smudged by the dark

They won't fight back
I'm sure they know how
Beings that love are too proud

They won't fight back
I'm sure they know how
Beings that love are too proud

They swim, it's really free
It's a beautiful thing to see, they sing

Hunters of land, hunters of sea
Exploit anything for money
I refer to anybody
That takes advantage of what that is free

They won't fight back
It's only a thought that makes it seem right
What you don't see is because of your sight

Take what you want, kill what you can
That's just one way of the mind of man
Take their lives, sell their parts
But there is no taking of their hearts

If I was lost at sea
That harpoon boat in front of me
It's the whale I'd like to be

They won't fight back, they won't fight back
They won't fight back, they won't fight back
They won't fight back

They don't know how, they won't fight back
They won't fight back, they won't fight back

Songwriters
Jack Irons
