about

Dave originated this bout of silliness. The rest of us piled on with modified lyrics, and a bunch of quotes from corny pop tunes of the past.

Sometimes you just can't predict what's gonna happen with a given tune. We never expected this to go anywhere. However, it soon became a rave staple of the live shows -- filling the dance floor every time.

Once we realized people were actually digging it, we tweaked it into what you hear here.

We hope it makes you smile - and maybe do some seat-dancing, too.

lyrics

.
Do the penguin In a tuxedo
Do the penguin Raise your libido
Do the penguin Stick out that chest
Do the penguin Be my guest
You don't have to have any rhythm
You can waddle around in a circle
Do the penguin

Do the bird Like you're flyin'
Do the bird Keep on tryin'
Bird's the word Flap them wings
Be absurd honey Shake that thing
And if you think this song is kinda crude
Please don't get it misconstrued
Do the bird

Do the ostrich Stretch that neck
Do the ostrich Ostrich peck
Do the penguin It's pretty hot
Do the penguin Give it what you got
And if you think this song is kinda crude
It's almost over, and it's true
Do the penguin
