We’re Penguins

Everywhere we go we wear a tuxedo
We’re shaped like torpedoes, WE’RE PENGUINS!

From New Caledonia to old Patagonia
We feel right at home, yeah, WE’RE PENGUINS!

Los Argentinos nos llaman “penguinos”
To see us there they go to Tierra del Fuego

Throughout the South Seas you’ll see great colonies
Of the seventeen species of Penguins!

WE’RE PENGUINS!

WE’RE PENGUINS!

Why would a bird seek a home in Antarctica?
The weather’s extreme, but the seafood’s surpeme!

When it’s sixty below in the ice and the snow
We say, “magnifico!” ‘cause WE’RE PENGUINS!

Now maybe you’ve heard that we’re flightless birds
But hey, that’s absurd— WE’RE PENGUINS!

Just take my word, we fly like any bird
We just do it submerged, ‘cause WE’RE PENGUINS!

So give me a home where the crustaceans roam
Where there’s fish in the sea, that’s where you’ll find me!

Everywhere we go we wear a tuxedo
We’re shaped like torpedoes, WE’RE PENGUINS!

Throughout the South Seas you’ll see great colonies
Of the seventeen species of Penguins!
