lyrics

Leroy was a Leopard seal, he lived at Damoy Point
A predator without a peer, you could say he owned the joint
Penguins, krill and table scraps is what most “Leps” ingest
But what made old Leroy special was his taste for human flesh, Leroy

Leroy, Leroy, Leroy
The terror of Lemaire!
Leroy

He came by his unnatural lust, his penchant for man-based snacks
When come upon this B.C. boy a-catchin’ Zodiacs
Now Matthew was a strappin’ lad, all full of beef and taters
‘til Leroy swum up stealthy-like and took him by his waders, Leroy

I’ll spare you all the grim and bloody details of Matt’s fate
The viscera, the high-pitched screams, I needn’t here relate
Gentoos, Leroy now eschews since he sampled Matthew’s meats
He roams the dark and rocky coves in search of sweeter treats, Leroy

The shores around Damoy were once a jewel in Lilibet’s realm
But since Leroy whet his appetite it’s a livin’ Leopard hell
So when you’re rounding Damoy Point and headed for the moat
Just keep one eye upon the stern and your hands inside the boat, Leroy
