The Lyrics

you cit through the salt water
as you circled around our yacht
your tail so rhythmically split the waves I thought
if I fall in, my life's shot
you had one on the chum line as,
I tried to get a shot

and all the fish swam away, they run farther,
they run so far away


dorsal fin,
you're not a shark if you are without one,
dorsal fin, you're not a man eater without one
are you? are you?

you bit me several years ago,
when I was on a big wave
you ripped away the skin, and the blood and the hair
it's lucky that I was saved
but you let me go, you silly shark
and now I shoot you with glee
I have some rounds, they have lead in the jacket
lead in the jacket, I shoot..

dorsal fins,
you're not a shark if you are without one,
dorsal fin, you're not a man eater without one
are you? are you?

I have some rounds, they have lead in the jacket
lead in the jacket, I shoot..

dorsal fins,
you're not a shark if you are without one,
dorsal fin, you're not a man eater without one
are you? are you?

Whoa! A parody way out in left-field rolling-in on the rip-tide of your mind, eh, Malc? Pretty funny, 5's!
