So long and thanks for all the fish
So sad that it should come to this
We tried to warn you all but oh dear!

You may not share our intellect
Which might explain your disrespect
For all the natural wonders that
grow around you

So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish

The world's about to be destroyed
There's no point getting all annoyed
Lie back and let the planet dissolve around you

Despite those nets of tuna fleets
We thought that most of you were sweet
Especially tiny tots and your
pregnant women

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long

So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish

If I had just one last wish
I would like a tasty fish
If we could just change one thing
We would all have lungs to sing
Man and mammal
side by side

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long

So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish!!!

This was the song, and saying, sent by the dophins as they "left" Earth, as it was about to be destroyed in Douglas Adams' Book (then movie) "Hitchhikers Guide the Galaxy"
