The Lyrics

A surfer "shoots the curl" when the wave he or she is riding curls, or breaks, over them without touching their head. A "pipeline" is a series of waves that surfers can ride from wave to wave without stopping for a long time. So ... is the "great white" in this parody a great white shark, or a great white-foaming wave that eats surfers...or both?
You're gonna shoot that curl
(Yes, yes, you're gonna shoot that curl)
You're gonna shoot that curl

You paddled your board out tonight
To surf while the moon shined
(To surf while the moon shined)

And now you're chased by a great white
With dinner on its mind
(It's you that's on its mind!)

You're gonna shoot that curl
(Yes, yes, you're gonna shoot that curl)
You're gonna shoot that curl

You're gonna feed great white, my friend
In one bite you'll be gone
(See that white drool and yawn!)

Unless you surf like lightning, friend
And shoot that curl you're on
(And shoot that curl you're on!)

You're gonna shoot that curl
(Yes, yes, you're gonna shoot that curl)
You're gonna shoot that curl
You're gonna shoot...

The razor-point, of every great white tooth wants you!
(You're just sea-food!) (Yeah!)
That great man-eater, what else can it do?

You're gonna shoot that curl
(Yes, yes, you're gonna shoot that curl)
You're gonna shoot that curl
You're gonna shoot...

The razor-point, of every great white tooth wants you!
(Your butt to chew!) (Yeah!)
It's a man-eater, what else can it do?

If you don't reach the, beach, my friend
It's gonna chomp and dine
(It's gonna chomp and dine!)

Your board is waxed, you're, hangin' ten
So far you're doin' fine
(On that shore-bound pipeline!)

You didn't shoot that curl
(Oh no, you didn't shoot that curl)
You didn't shoot that curl
It swallowed youuuuu --- then --- hurled!

I actually DKTOS, but I know your pacing. I haven't heard "shoot the curl" or "pipeline" in ages. Hang 10 and divide by 2...;)
