Spineless Song of the Week - Sea Squirts Just Want To Have Fun

Inspired by recent research by Johnson & Yund that I posted on here, I transformed a classic Cyndi Lauper song into a Urochordata masterpiece. Well, thats for you to decide. If you don't know the song this is sung to, step out of the cave... Liquid courage brought to you this week by Dale's Pale Ale from the Oskar Blues Brewing Company.

Sea Squirts Just Want To Have Fun

I’m attached to rock in the moonlight
My colony says 'when you gonna live your life right?'
Oh but females aren’t the fortunate ones
And sea squirts, they want to have fun
Oh sea squirts just want to have fun

One sperm come in the middle of the night
My colony yells 'what you gonna do with your life?'
Oh ascidians, I can’t have only one,
But sea squirts, they want to have fun,
Oh sea squirts just want to have

(Chorus)
That's all they really want...
some fun...
When the filter-feeding day is done
Oh sea squirts they want to have fun
Oh sea squirts just want to have fun

Many males enter my siphonal canal
I don’t care how many, I’ve got eggs for them all
Some may say I’m too promiscuous
But sea squirts just want to have fun
Oh sea squirts just want to have

repeat chorus
