The Lyrics

(big jaws...big jaws)
every morning at the shore you could see him arrive
over twelve foot long...over twelve-forty-five
teeth that sawed while they held ya, all gnawin' as they ripped
and anyone was doomed when they were in the grip...of big jaws
(big jaws...big jaws)...big bad jaws...(big jaws)

nobody swam, ya know, when this guy roamed
he drifted on the tide and preyed all alone
he didn't splash much, driftin' silently by
and then he'd strike and maul...and off he'd fly...big jaws

chewed bodies when he came...with choppers, keen
you can't win in a fight...with a beast so mean
with a crashin' blow from a maw, so grand
he could quickly send a fellow to the promised land...big jaws
(big jaws...big jaws)...big bad jaws...(big jaws)

then came a day...when the sun was blazin' fine
and that beach was packed...when he came to dine
tourists were playin...oh what a blast
then everybody turned to flee that beast so fast...big jaws

through the swells, how he stroked, he could swim like hell
made a luncheon of a man the locals knew well
snagged a woman's limb there...she gave out a groan
and the rest of 'em screamed as the bloody sea foamed...big jaws
(big jaws...big jaws)...big bad jaws...(big jaws)

so they hunted at length...it came to push and shove
on the mighty swells, sailed a boat up above
those searchin' men gambled, for the town to save
its a pretty big shark, down there, they crave...big jaws

with nerves a-shiver, they tracked him on down
then came a rumblin'...a thunderous sound
but the blokes thought fast and blew him up, fine
everybody knew it was the end of the line...for big jaws
(big jaws...big jaws)...big bad jaws...(big jaws)

they never recovered those sharky bits
twas not much left, in view of the blitz
the beast was killed by an unexpected plan
at the bottom of the sea...lies a big shark, man...big jaws
(big jaws...big jaws)...big bad jaws...(big jaws)

(Humming Jaws theme): "Da dum, da dum!" Great tribute to one hungry shark! Keep a lookout for its fins. Love the movie and the ride in Universal Studios, except for the fact that I'm close to the fire. Sink your teeth into some 5's!

Loved the OS which was perfect for this entertaining storyline. I wonder if shark sausage would be a good sell? For shudders and giggles, 555 for you. :-D
