The Blue Mammal Waltz
00:00 / 03:31


Sing Along Now!


She has vertebrae Mammalia
She lives in the sea Mammalia
She produces milk Mammalia
For her new baby Mammalia
With no hair at all Mammalia
Like other mammals Mammalia
Yes, she is the queen of baleens
And from head to tail a great Blue Whale

Like an elephant, like a cat or cow
They are cousins, they're warm blooded
She's a cetacean out on the ocean
Living an aquatic animal life

She uses baleen plates as she filters all her food
And she eats four tons a day
While she's getting her fill on the krill, it's her fav
One hundred and ten feet
And one hundred ninety tons
She can live one hundred years
And of all living things she is the largest one

She has subcutaneous blubber underneath her skin
She's filled with fat and with oil, helps keep her warm within
Keeps her warm within
She is a mammalia
She has a placenta
And all through pregnancy her baby stays safe in her womb

Great Blue Whale, yes she is a Great Blue Whale
And with her great blue tail to the south she will roam
Great Blue Whale, yes she is a Great Blue Whale
And with her great blue tail all the ocean is her home sweet home
Sweet home, she roams, she's all Mammal
