It’s time, the music begins
The stirrings deep within
Now begins the 10,000klm swim
Of the majestic creatures of the sea

The music is contagious
Pods singing with heavenly sounds
Awakens the sleepy ones
Up the coast we swim towards the warmer seas

One breach, two breaches and then a twist, splash
It’s a celebration
Dreams of mating and giving birth
Are now becoming a reality

The stunning Gold Coast skyline comes into view
With Spirit vessel in the distance
Is that Skipper Jason at the helm?
Passengers eagerly awaiting our arrival
So curious to see us again

Oh, if they only knew
How excited and curious we are too
To see them again clapping incessantly
Showing off our aerobatic tricks

Screams of delight draws us closer
Spy hopping to get a better view
Hands and arms outstretched in anticipation of a gentle touch
Up breaches a juvenile with a leap, twist and splash

We must journey on, and wave our pectorals
See you on the way back we sing with joyous enthusiasm
With our calves and mates
Until Spirit is just a speck in the distance
