The Lyrics

Alongside my Mariah Carey "Hippo" tune, Here's another one for the Animal Kingdom...
Hate those piranha
In the Amazon they're nippy
They will stuff each fishy face
Of their's with tourists who are risky
They'll be chewed
Fangs flare if you jump in their pool
Come watch them drool

Hate those piranha
Here in Africa they're vicious
Beasts are scared when they get hungry
Since these fish think they're delicious
Chomped like fries
Cattle are destroyed due to these guys
They take large bites

Oooh, Watch out they'll chew your knees
Oooh, They'll dine on gnu with cheese
Oooh, You're turned to goo with ease
Oooh, When those cows moo they're seized
A large crew of freaks

Hate those piranha
They will bite right through your arm
When you're swimming Earl
I'm glad that they have gills, They won't cause harm
When you're on land
You have no strife once on the sand
But still don't tan

Hate those piranha
All of your flesh's ripped away
The gore's twisted and wrong, I'm warning you
Don't jump into a lake
Where they can maul
Even more intense than bugs that crawl
Since those are small

Ooooh, They have some huge sharp teeth
Noooo, They don't look cute to me
Ooooh, They're such a brute and mean
Ooooh, You'd better scoot and flee

Out in the Nile it's quite bizarre
Cut like a chainsaw that's been charged
In a canoe they'd slice through for a taste

Joe Dante must of thought it's nuts
He made a film with blood and guts
Now we'll avoid each stream, We're not that brave

Piranhas make the oddest food
On fishing lines the others brood
Their fangs become a thresher on their mate
And bones you'll plate

Hate those piranha
When barefoot your toes go missing
Better fear when you're around their school
Since they move awfully swiftly, That's the truth
Check out that ragged pointy tooth
They'd have you for dinner in a soup
Hate those piranha, The whole group
Makes my mouth droop

Ooooh, If they're in view please leave
Ooooh, They binged on Stu and Steve
Ooooh, Sight makes me spew and heave
Ooooh, They'd attack you like bees
The whole zoo they'd cleave

Whoa nooooo, Whoa noooo, Whoa nooooo
Whoa noooo, Whoa noooo, Whoa nooooo...
