I know I'm not a dolphin and perhaps I'm not as cute.
But I don't want the limelight I couldn't give a hoot.
In swamps or in rivers, estuaries or sea
I'm as happy as a herbivore, content to let things be.
From Florida to Senegal, Angola to Peru
Mangrove leaves and turtle grass are what I like to chew.
Just don't ask me to go quickly or stay awake too long
Floating is much easier and sleeping makes me strong.
With such an easygoing life who wouldn't want to be
A shallow grazing, quite amazing mighty manatee?
