Written and sung by Sam Devere.

I stopped at the big aquarium.
Not very long ago;
To see the bass And suckers,
And to hear the white whale blow.
A skate and a flounder making love,
And they shook each others fins;
And a crab with a sunshade over his head,
Come along with a pair of twins.

Oh, the big sea lion he bowled and growled,
And the seal beat time with the drum;
And the whale he swallowed a ton of eels,
At the big aquarium.

I had my gal along with me.
She's purty, but she's dark;
But when she laughed and opened her mouth,
I thought she'd swallow the shark.
The lobster smiled and sucked his thumb,
And laid as still as death;
When the turtle winked his eye at Sal,
It nearly took her breath.-Chorus.

The music played and the sturgeon danced,
But the porpoise cleared the track;
The eel he tied himself in a knot.
And the crab walked on his back.
The trout and the catfish danced a reel,
And the sea lion let a roar;
When the whale got up and Mowed his nose,
My gal. Sal, bounced out the door. - Chorus.
