just call him "Triple D"

His name was Dwight David Dugong
They called him "Triple D"
A big long bull of a seacow
Strong as you would see as he could be

As fanciful because he
Was as big then and still bigger now
Than he was when he is not
If he ever was because of me

Even if not he is a hot
Topic hotter than I thought
Albeit not quite gotten
Because he was not forgotten

When I ring up his glory
Then to bring you a smile
I will sing his dugong story
Thing is though it takes awhile

But if my swerving memory
Is serving right who might be wrong
He seemed more than less to me
To be more or less a manatee

Some judging from this shape of his tail
Through whispers of conspiracy
Said he had come and swum the wrong sea
But strong Dwight David Dugong would prevail

A manatee a man of the sea
Of his word undeterred from daring
To lend a flipper or spend time caring
Digging the dugongs who dug "Triple D"

No less though less than more a dugong but
A dugong all along no matter what
Name you give who by his fame will live
Because of mine through me throughout the sea

A man or two or three
Dwight David Dugong
Or D. D. Manatee
A dugong: a song

Just call him "Triple D"
