Lyrics

Baby Baluga in the deep blue sea
Swims so wild and you swim so free
Heaven above and sea below
You're just a little white whale on the go

Baby Baluga, Baby Baluga
Is the water warm,
is your mother home
with you so happy

Way down yonder where the dolphins play
Where you dive and splash all day
Waves roll in and the wave roll out
See the water squirting out of your spout

Baby Baluga, Baby Baluga
Sing your little song,
sing for all your friends
we'd like to hear you

When it's dark and you're home and fed
Curled out snug in your waterbed
Moon is shining and the stars are out
Good night, little whale, good night

Baby Baluga, Baby Baluga
With tomorrow's sun,
another day's begun,
you'll soon be waking

Repeat Verse 1
