We are the pumpkinseeds
Dressed in silver and yellow and blue
The fashion models of the sea
Preening on the cat-fish-walk
We hang cool
We are not grey and drab
Like the chubby chub or green crab
Who wish they were us

As you probably know
Are beautiful flowers
That grow on the shimmering moon
And scatter their seeds
Into the ocean home

Even our name
Is rather beautiful

Great! Always nice to be able to sing along to the tune of "We Are The Ovalteenies".

Thank you, Sue. Thank you, Mr Wasted Papers. The aquatic version of the Ovalteenies was due for another appearance.
