Sea Lion Shuffle

words and music by MaryLee Sunseri

A sea lion doesn’t roar,
He just harks
From early in the morning
Til late in the dark
He can’t stalk around
‘Cause he don’t have feet
And it ain’t no jungle at the end of our street.

In Monterey town way up on the hill
The fishermen live like they always will
Fishin’ for the mornin’ sun gives ’em light
And listenin’ to the lions bark
Deep in the night

Sometimes you see lions out on the rocks
They sleep altogether as sheep in flocks
Slippin’ and a’flippin’ at the break of the day
They beg for fish
Down at Monterey Bay.

You know, people come from miles around
They hear there’s a jungle at the end of our town
They hear we’ve got lions they can feed down there
But the lions don’t roar
And we don’t care…
