"Monstro the Whale" was a deleted song that was written for the animated feature Pinocchio.

The song was never meant to be sung in the film, but was instead an "exploitation song" made at the request of publisher Irving Berlin, Inc. for use in the film's promotional campaign; other songs in this category are "Jiminy Cricket" and "Honest John". Nevertheless, the song's melody is briefly heard in the film's underscore when Pinocchio sets off to find Monstro at the bottom of the sea.

Lyrics

Down on the bottom of the ocean
Someone has caused a big commotion
A whale of a whale, and Monstro is his name

He's the despair of all the whalers
Oh, what a scare he gives the sailors
Better beware, or he'll give you the same

When he was just a little fellow,
Monstro was precocious
Now he can snort and spout and bellow
And he's so ferocious

Who can make the jellyfish shake
And make the sharks grow pale?
It's the undersea public enemy
Called Monstro the Whale

Weak fish cry and halibut sigh
If he just flips his tail
For they're out of breath and they're scared to death
Of Monstro the Whale

Were all his crimes laid end-to-end,
They would stretch from Maine to Barcelona
He's the whale that swallowed the whale
That swallowed the whale that swallowed Jonah

Look out for him whenever you swim
And forward all your mail
Better have it come to the tummy-tum
Of Monstro the Whale

Off the island of Bermuda
Monstro ate a barracuda
Indigestion laid him low
He's off of seafood, yes sir!

Now he thinks there's nothing finer
Than a great big ocean liner
He just takes them as they come
And he washes them down with a barrel of rum

Were all his crimes laid end-to-end
They would stretch from Maine to Barcelona
He's the whale that swallowed the whale
That swallowed the whale that swallowed Jonah

Look out for him whenever you swim
And forward all your mail
Better have it come to the tummy-tum
Of Monstro the Whale

Better have it come to the tummy-tum
Of Monstro the Whale!
