Lucius Lyr Req: Yet another whaling song (9) Yet another whaling song 27 Jan 01


I have an ancient tape with two whaling songs. For the life of me I can't remember the artists.

The first one is to the tune of Drunken Sailor:

When my father was a boy, he went down to the general store, saw a picture book of whales.... and so on to the Chorus: Hoo-ray and up she rises (X3) early in the morning.

The second is more campy:

If I were a whale in the (X3) I'd feel so sad and I'd be so mad If I were a whale in the sea. Goes on to sing about the "Save the whale people"

Anybody recognize either of these?

Lucius
