The Great Okibo

Download Song

From "The Seventh Sea"

When I was knee-high to a bumpkin
I met with Cap'n Blunderbust the Blind
He said, "Boy I know yer wee
But spend yer life at sea
And the Great Falashan Whale you'll surely find."
And so to hunt the Great Okibo

I've chased him round the world but ten times over
And always just a league or two behind
I follow every lead
Undo his every deed
And the Great Falashan Whale I'll surely find
And so to hunt the Great Okibo.

And if this weary ship could talk
It probably wouldn't even talk
It probably wouldn't even say,
That any whale is anywhere inside you
And where there is a whale, there was a way.
