Sharkopotamus Rex

Download Song

I am a scientist of the mad persuasion
I've got mason jars of fluids,
Jacob's ladders,
Sutures and saws and I
I've sewn together species on a few occasions
Giving life to mongrels with no regard for nature's laws

I've made a mermaid once or twice
A cockatrice
Some centaurs and minotaurs
And jackalopes where you can barely see the scars

But there's one recipe
One unholy recipe The chemistry incessantly eludes and gets the best of me
Eludes and gets the best of me
Eludes and gets the best of me

Sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
I don't know the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
I don't have the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
I don't know the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
I don't know the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
I don't know the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
I don't know the specs
To build a sharkopotamus

I've made impalarangutans
And kangazelles with panda hands
The fearsome mermule and the human millipede

But there's one hybrid
That always comes out lopsided
I can see it in my giant head
But I just can't do the deed
Just can't do the deed

Sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
I don't have the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
Sharkopotamus Rex
Nothing's more complex
Than the sharkopotamus Rex
I am irked and vexed
Exasperated and perplexed
And I don't have the specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
I am irked and vexed
Exasperated and perplexed
But I don't need no specs
To build a sharkopotamus Rex
