I'll say: The ghost turtle is not your bitch.

It will swim through every ocean and sea

With all the power of a shell-back witch -

Tide, current and wind, those are the key.

 

It will swim through every ocean and sea

Navigating, storm-riding reptile,

Tide, current and wind. Those are the key

Blunt bullet-beaked head filled with guile.

 

Navigating, storm-riding reptile

Can see for miles atop the swell;

Blunt bullet-beaked head filled with guile:

Don't you know that this is a magic spell?

 

Can see for miles atop the swell,

With all the power of a shell-backed witch,

Don't you know that this is a magic spell?

I'll say: the ghost turtle is not. Your. Bitch.
