About the song
Knitters around the world were commissioned to make sweaters for Penguins in Antarctica to save them from being poisoned when stuck in oil slicks. The song, and the 'cult' of penguin sweater knitting, has become a hit with knitters everywhere.
Lyrics
The Ladies and I used to always do our bit-
when the boys were over there-
For the cause we all would knit-
them socks and underwear-
Well it's been a trifle slow-
since they all came home you know-
But now we've found something new to show we really care!
We're making....

Sweaters For Penguins!
It does wonders for their self esteem,
Sweaters For Penguins!
In the colours of their favourite hockey team
Sweaters For Penguins!
Everybody shout hooray!
You wanna have some nice clothes
Sitting on those ice floes-
Sweaters for penguins today!

Sweaters For Penguins!
So life for them won't be so black and white,
Sweaters For Penguins!
So they'll feel less formal going out at night-
Sweaters For Penguins!
Everybody shout hooray!
The world will be better
When every penguin has a sweater
Knit a Sweater For a Penguin today!

Some spend all their efforts fighting hunger and disease-
some devote their time to saving whales or hugging trees-
We feel that those endeavors have volunteers enough-
So we work to keep poor penguins from remaining in the buff--

Sweaters For Penguins!
With V-Necks that fit over their beaks,
Sweaters for Penguins,
Or a Cardigan is so Antarctic Chic!
Sweaters For Penguins
'Cause it gets pretty cold down there,
Sweaters For Penguins!
They need good British wool to wear,
Sweaters For Penguins!
Everybody shout hooray!
And maybe matching slippers
for their chilly little flippers
Knit a sweater for a penguin today!
Knit a sweater for a penguin today!
