Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

amity has a shark
i think it wrecked their fourth of july
amity hates this shark
i think it was reported some died
teeth were slashing...teeth were gnashing
a man eating white seen
stalking the splashing throng
monstrous body...being naughty
can he swim fast ?...yes, he can
no more vacations for a long time
in amity

one summer's day, came the shark
he slinks and then his dorsal fin rise
a bummer day, darn that shark
and swimming, you'll abort, if you're wise
people watching...real life violence
a corpse with a big scar
sinking chopped and mauled
biggest shark in all the world
can he swim fast ?...yes, he can
don't be wading in the high tide
in amity

ol' ocean hider
bites the tourists in the bay
a stunned man...sans hand
all gory and dismayed
little children...fall and get noshed
bloody red froth
oh...no no

hungry days for the shark
killing, not for sport, is this guy
munchy days for the shark
eating every sort that applies
people screaming...people lunched on
an abomination
waiting in the swells
sure is daunting...beach is haunting
can he swim fast ?...yes, he can
and he's been lurking for a long time
in amity

Good one Alvin :) If only you could have had the shark EAT Roy Schieder I would have given you 10's. Enjoyed all the lines, but particularly : "swimming, you'll abort, if you're wise"
