Captain Ike's Walrus Page!

    I love Walruses!
The latin name for the walrus is "Odebenus Rosmarus".

 Below are some examples of
WALRUS  STUFF!


I Am The Walrus.

Let it forever be known that John Lennon wrote the majority of this song,
and the words are,
"Goo Goo Ga Choob",
NOT
"Coo Coo Ca Choo"!
 

Words and Music by:
John Lennon and Paul McCartney
The Beatles

I am he, as you are he, as you are me,
and we are all together.
See how they run like pigs from a gun,
see how they fly?
I'm Crying.

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come.
Corporation T-shirt,stupid bloody Tuesday,
Man you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus!
Goo Goo Ga Choob!

Mister City, Policeman sitting,
pretty little policemen in a row.
See how they fly, like Lucy in the Sky,
See how they run?
I'm crying. I'm crying.
I'm crying. I'm crying.

                       Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye.
Crabalocker fish wife, pornographic priestess,
Boy, you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down.
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen,
I am the walrus!
Goo Goo Ga Choob!

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun.
If the sun don't come you get a tan from standing in the english rain!
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen,
I am the walrus!
Goo Goo Ga Choob a Goo Goo Ga Choob!

Expert textperts, choking smokers,
don't you think the joker laughs at you?
See how they smile like pigs in a sty,
see how they snied.
I'm crying.

       Semolina pilchard, climbing up the Eiffel Tower.
       Elementary penguin singing Hari Krishna.
       Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allan Poe.
       I am the eggman, they are the eggmen.
I am the walrus!
Goo Goo Ga Choob a Goo Goo Ga Choob!
 Goo Goo Ga Choob a Goo Goo Ga Choob a goo!
 


John Lennon got the idea for the previous song
from a combination of a few good acid trips,
the tale of Humpty Dumpty,
and most importantly,...

Lewis Carroll's
The Walrus and the Carpenter.

The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might;
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright—
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done—
`It's very rude of him,'she said
`To come and spoil the fun!'

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead—
There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
`If this were only cleared away,'
They said, `It would be grand!'

`If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose,' the Walrus said,
`That they could get it clear?'
`I doubt it,' said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

`O Oysters, come and walk with us!'
The Walrus did beseech.
`A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each.'

The eldest Oyster looked at him,
But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
And shook his heavy head—
Meaning to say he did not choose
To leave the oyster-bed.

But four young Oysters hurried up,
All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat—
And this was odd, because, you know,
They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
And more, and more, and more—
All hopping through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
And waited in a row.

`The time has come,' the Walrus said,
`To talk of may things:
Of shoes— and ships— and sealing-wax—
Of cabbages— and kings—
And why the sea is boiling hot—
And whether pigs have wings.'

`But wait a bit,' the Oysters cried,
`Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
And all of us are fat!'
`No hurry!' said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

`A loaf of bread,' the Walrus said,
`Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are very good indeed—
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed.'

`But not on us!' the Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
`After such kindness, that would be
A dismal thing to do!'
`The night is fine,' the Walrus said.
`Do you admire the view?

`It was so kind of you to come!
And you are very nice!'
The Carpenter said nothing, but
`Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf-
I've had to ask you twice!'

`It seems a shame,' the Walrus said,
`To play them such a trick
After we've brought them out so far,
And made them trot so quick!'
The Carpenter said nothing but
`The butter's spread too thick!'

`I weep for you,' the Walrus said:
`I deeply sympathize.'
With sobs and tears he sorted out
Those of the largest size
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
Before his streaming eyes.

`O Oysters,' said the Carpenter
`You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
But answer came there none-
And this was scarcely odd, because
They'd eaten every one.

And now to wrap it all up,
allow me to include a few pictures of some real walruses,
which their are very few of that I've found.
If anyone has good walrus pics,
please email them to me!
