The following is about a song. For the character it's based on, see The Bison Aquafied: Rise of the Eel Thing instead.

"The Eel Thing" is a song off the Every Ape and His Brother album The Chicken of the Opera. It is about the titular sea monster destroying various modern sea vessels, while one crazed survivor's warnings go completely unheeded. The song is a parody of "The Real Thing" by Bo Bice.

HistoryEdit

This song was first proposed some time after the original was heard on-radio in 2005. When the Dozerfleet founder's sisters became fascinated with the original song and purchased Bo Bice's album, urges to make this parody grew stronger. The evening of Wednesday, September 23rd of 2009, that desire came to a head, and this parody was written.

"The Eel Thing" was finally submitted some time in the afternoon of Thursday the 24th to AmIRight's website. It was approved the following Friday.

ReceptionEdit

So far, the song has received all 5's from two votes at AmIRight, making it one of Every Ape's most popular entries.

The Eel Thing

First verseEdit

Every ship at sea, / he'll eat it; /
Ev-er-y vessel, / defeated! /

Beware of his advance; /
This giant sea beast's glance! / A monster!
And not a lobster! /

First chorusEdit

Tell me what you'll do, when he's after you! / Beware of the Eel Thing! /
Please avoid the range/ Of his great rampage / Or there is no winning! / And it will sting!!! /

You're about to die; / There is no debate! /
Tear your ship in two;/ He will decimate! /

Soon you'll feel the pain; / Of electric shame! /
Beware of the Eel Thing! /
Sea A-bo-mination! /

Second verseEdit

I can see you think/ I'm batnuts! /
Just wait until he licks / up all your guts! /
It's an agonizing scare / And sure to make you care! /
And he'll invest too; / As he digests you! /
Yooooowwww!!!! /

[Repeat Chorus]

BridgeEdit

Sometimes / he'll pre- / tend / not to care; /
And then / he'll wrap himself 'round you / unfair! /
And then you know / how it'll be! /
He'll make sure that / you're history! /
Because he's the Eel Thing! /
It's so completely wrong! /

Second chorusEdit

Tell me what you'll do, when he's after you! / Beware of the Eel Thing! /
Please avoid the range/ Of his great rampage / Or there is no winning! /
And it will sting! /

You're about to die, / there is no debate; /
Tear your ship in two/ he will decimate! /

Soon you'll feel the pain / of electric shame; /
Beware of the Eel Thing! /
It's so completely wrong! /

Third chorusEdit

Tell me what you'll do, when he's after you! / Beware of the Eel Thing! /
Please avoid the range/ Of his great rampage / Or there is no winning! /
And it will sting! /

You're about to die, / there is no debate; /
Tear your ship in two/ he will decimate! /

Soon you'll feel the pain / of electric shame; /
Beware of the Eel Thing! /

The Eel Thing! / ...
