.....Secrets of the Sea ooooo

You have heard of the sea shell that roars like a wave,
and you know that the sea snail knows how to behave
when it climbs down a sea-wall to meet the sea slug,
which sticks to its sea-mat and sees a sea-dog...

... but what of sea oranges, -onions and -peas?
You can follow the sea snake and feel the sea breeze:
you can swim with the sea-horse and race the sea-hare,
but stop in your tracks when you see the sea bear!

You can fly through the waves when you catch a seaplane:
you can find your sea-legs; chase the sea-lion again.
May I tell you a secret? - I shouldn't tell tales -
but it seems sea canaries are really just whales!
