about

Bert Ziggen's masterpiece that clears up the confusion between Dolphins and Porpises

lyrics

Dolphins And Porpoises

Dolphins and porpoises; they are not fish, they are small whales
they breathe air just like we do
they have skin not scales
lots of folks think that they are the same
but porpoises are smaller and shy
dolphins are playful and their brains are about the same size as mine

dolphins and porpoises

echolocation is how a dolphin likes to get around
they've got sonar like a submarine
it's like a seeing eye dog for sound
dolphins like to stick together in pods, schools, or herds
Yellow Fin tuna like to join them for dinner and come back for seconds and thirds

dolphins and porpoises

some dolphins shed their outer skin about every two hours
that's why their skin is so smooth and even smoother in two hours
porpoises are fast swimmers with a speed of 34 mph
and their thick blubber keeps them warm and it even keeps them safe
most dolphins live in the ocean but a few kinds live in fresh water
dolphins and porpoises are mammals that live in the sea
(our next topic: sea otters)

dolphins and porpoises

dolphins and porpoises are excellent communicators
that means what's for lunch
that means spend your parents' money on aging rock stars CD's, kids
I actually don't know what that one means
wait a minute you can't say that on a children's record!
