We are the bold and rakish crew of the good ship manatee
They say we are the strangest bunch to sail the starry sea
So dither your engines back shar warp and catch us if you can
We'll drink a brew when journey's through round old alberderan

All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
They say she's the oddest ship that ever tried to fly

Our captain built a model of the palace at Versailles
Across the recreation room and no one could get by!
One night we heard what sounded like a mighty cannon's roar
Versailles had blown to kingdom come with half the recroom floor.

All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
'Tis true she's the strangest ship that ever tried to fly

The astrogator has a way with plants of every type
She nurtures alien vegetables and cooks them when they're ripe
She had a Vega orchid once that ate the captain's cat
Then terrorized the ship's exec until she squashed it flat!

All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
'Tis true she's the oddest ship that ever tried to fly

Our engineer's a singer, but don't tell the captain that!
He writes his verses in the hold and wears a cowboy hat!
Sometimes on the first watch one can hear a mournful voice
Sing lonesome country western tunes, I wish he'd offer us a choice.

All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
'Tis true she's the oddest ship that ever tried to fly

Musical interlude
Our doctor is a curious soul, an operating man
He takes out spleens to Beethoven and Khachaturian
One day he grabbed a crewman who had called the doc a quack
We couldn't look at what he took, oh doc please put it back!

All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
'Tis true she's the oddest ship that ever tried to fly
Yeah
All hail the manatee as up she's passing by
'Tis true she's the oddest ship that ever tried to fly
