The Lyrics

For my "World Go Boom" self-challenge. A guy at the beach encounters a feck-off huge shark. Does not go well, as things involving sharks rarely do.
Went down to the beach yesterday
A long trip from the city, though I'm not picky
Sucked on the bus, but I got here
I've got my daggy bathers on

Don't have the cash to rent a surfboard
Although my balance is kinda sore
Swimming, I like, but what's that swimming this way now?
It's kinda far away

Oh, but I think it is a great white
I hope that it ain't a great white
Sure would suck if that's a great white, great white

I say "Oh, got this feeling that I'm doomed, right?"
But the sun is in my eyes, too bright
So it may not be a great white
Cause that would bite

Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

At this fearsome sight, I yell out "Oh, no"
I knew I should've stayed at home
Aussie beaches are dang'rous, I should know
But all that I'm able to do is float

I wish that I could get the hell out
But all of my limbs aren't working now
I would like to leave, please, legs won't let me-e-e-e
There's this liquid seeping out

I just wanted to get cool
Let the waves wash over
But I see something now
That's gonna do me in

Oh, holy crap, it is a great white
Getting closer, it's a great white
I'm not really fond of great whites, great whites

I say "Oh, got this feeling I'm his lunch, right?"
What a painful way to die, oh why
Did it have to be a great white
Because that bites

Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
A great, great white
Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

I should flee
It looks like that shark is remarkably quick
I should flee
Maybe I'll live if I pretend to be sick

I should flee
This thing is a dental nightmare, freaks me out
Know I should flee
Might be the only way I'd get in the news now

Oh, holy crap it is a great white
Getting closer, it's a great white
I am not a fan of great whites, great whites

I say "Oh, got this feeling I'm dead meat, right?"
Since when did Spielberg direct my life
That John Williams score means great white
And that sure bites

Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Oh yeah, a great, great white, great white
Ohhhh ohhh ohhh ohhh
Whooh, wooh, bugger

I'm as dead as roast pork, I should know
My legs are jelly, I'm so toast
Guess I'm fated to be hors d'oeuvres, oh no
Where in the hell is that damn lifeguard bloke

He saw me panicking, was quite loud
Is he really on his lunch break now?
And he has no relief, kinda like me-e-e-e
I give up, I'll be shark chow
Will-yums, mmmkay? Wow, 10th parody this month, I'm really on a roll.

I remember when Al Jolson did this song in "The Jaws Singer."
