lyrics

Bioluminescent underwater blobs
And tiny cleaner fish doing symbiotic jobs

Chimpanzees figured out fashion long ago
And monkeys find a hot tub to get out of the snow

Crows can use tools and figured out the road
And people can get high from licking on a toad

Before a quake, dogs disappear
And butterflies drink turtle tears
Ahhhhh

There’s lots of stuff I know about
But I haven’t figured you out
Ahhhhh

How are sea turtles drawn to the waves?
Are there grizzly bears lyin’ awake inside their caves?

Is an octopus an alien species?
Are jellyfish born from jellyfish pieces?

How does an otter pick a favourite rock?
And how does he know to put it in his pocket?

Before a quake, dogs disappear
And butterflies drink turtle tears
Ahhhhh

There’s lots of stuff I know about
But I haven’t figured you out
Ahhhhh

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
I don’t know, I don’t know
