lyrics

~ Pig Mammoth Palace ~

Once the palace was in view, Major Dee told Chad, “From this point you’re on your own. That’s the only way you’ll be able to sneak into the castle undetected.”
When Chad got up close, the palace was so tall that it hurt his neck to look up to the top. He started climbing slowly up the stones, and once he got to an opening in the palace walls he was able to peek in. He could see the Pig Mammoths marching under the instruction of one rather obese beast that appeared to be their leader.
As he climbed further, he spotted the room where Todd was being held prisoner. Chad assessed the situation, noticing that there was only one Pig Mammoth standing guard, and that the key to the cell was hooked on the wall.
Chad climbed even further. As he reached the top of the palace he found a room piled wall to wall and floor to ceiling with double basses.
Chad grabbed the largest double bass and bow that he could find and headed down to the cell, ready to take on the beasts. The Pig Mammoth on guard snorted and squinted his eyes as he noticed Chad approaching him. Chad remembered what Todd had shown him in Reptilia, so he flipped open the extension on the bass to access the lowest notes, and played as loudly as he possibly could. The beastly mammoth dropped to the ground like a rock, squealing in pain.
The army of Pig Mammoths at the bottom of the palace could hear that someone was playing a double bass, and their leader yelled violently, “Put an end to that horrendous noise!!!”
Chad quickly grabbed the key and unlocked the cell. “You’re the best brother ever!,” exclaimed Todd. They ran up to the room of double basses. Todd explained that the basses which have lightning bolts burned into the wood grains can fly!
