The Most Beautiful Pengu'in Antarctica

The Most Beautiful Pengu'in Antarctica

Liner Notes: 

A happy song! A happy song by Wordsmith. I broke my streak of anxiety and sarcasm. And all it took was my pretending to be someone else.

This was my attempt at the Week 7 challenge. Someone told me I should write a song in the style of @kahlo2013. I realised quickly on that this was very much a Kahlo/Wordsmith hybrid, rather than something distinctly in her style, but I liked the lyric enough to forge on and finish it.

Do enjoy.


There's something bout
The way you wander
There's something in your
ice-cold stare
The mermaid with a bird brain
The bird that drives me insane
You glide on through this life
Without a care

To think of life
Without you in it
Would leave me, well
A Little Blue
I hope it don't sound shady
When I say 'you'll be my lady'
Cause I think that I could be your

You're the prettiest pengu'in Antarctica
One look, I fell flat on my butt
You're a true emp-er-ess
And you're dressed to impress
With your penguin suit perfectly cut
You're the gorgeousest gal on this glacier
Yes, you're one cool and beautiful bird
As you stepped on my floe
My heart beat out a 'whoa!'
'twas the sweetest beat I ever heard!

I know I'm thinking
Black and White, here
But next to you,
They're all the same
You strut this coldest latitude
With just the coolest attitude
This southern polar drift
A giddy game

I'll clear my head
In this clear air, now
With chinstrap high
I'll take the plunge
And, bold as any rebel
I'll leave you this one pebble
And headlong into wedded bliss
We'll lunge


With a plumper, softer belly
Than a Hoiho or Adelie
Your soft spots hit the soft spot in my heart
You're not all skinny-bony
Like a King or Macaroni
And I'd melt down like an icecap
If we ever were to part


Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

As a one time watcher of March Of The Penguins I approve!

Sure, it's a hybrid of styles but it's a fun lyric. Smile

I loved this. Especially: "You strut this coldest latitude//With just the coolest attitude" That's just a genius set of lines.

See You In The Shadows…
