      Lyrics for Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Yertle The Turtle"

      On a far away island
      of Salamasond
      Yertle the turtle
      Was king of the pond
      A nice little pond
      It was clean it was neat
      The water was warm
      There was plenty to eat
      Until one day
      The king of them all
      Decided the kingdom
      He ruled was too small
      I'm a ruler of all that I see
      But I don't see enough
      And that's the trouble with me

      With this stone for a throne
      I am too low down
      I cannot look down
      Upon the places beyond
      So Yertle the turtle king
      Lifted his hand
      And Yertle the turtle king
      Lifted his hand
      He ordered all the turtles
      Onto one another's back
      He piled them high
      Into a ten turtle stack
      I'm Yertle the turtle
      The things I now rule
      I'm king of a cow
      I'm king of a mule

      Then down from below
      In the great turtle stack
      Came a burp from a plain
      Little turtle named Mack
      Just part of the throne
      This burpin' little turtle
      Looked up and said "I beg
      Your pardon king Yertle"
      I've pains in my back
      My shoulders and my knees
      How long must we stand
      Here your majesty
      "Silence !" the king of the
      Turtles barked back
      To the bad burpin'
      Little turtle named Mack
      I'm Yertle the turtle
      Oh marvelous me for
      I am ruler of all that I see

      Yertle, Yertle the turtle
      Yertle, Yertle the turtle
