The Lyrics

[brief acoustic guitar intro]

Went out for a boat ride
fell off; now I'm prayin'
no boat; I dog-paddle
situation; a bad one
I curse and I'm rattled
an escape; I don't see one
this day is a bummer
soon danger I'll face

"Damn, this is screwed
I am in a quagmire
I'm sinkin', not swimmin'
quite soon it appears
went boating; not wise
now I'm soggy and tired
it was not too long
'fore some sharks did appear
Oh sh*t! Now I'm shaking in fear

In fright, now I scream out, "Save Me!"
When sharks arrive I will be maimed
It will be soon
then my life I will lose
I'll be shark chow
and so now I scream
But no one's in sight; cries in vain

Yes, I'll soon be dismembered
my blood will soon flow
I guess when those sharks bite
their sharp teeth will hurt some
no one will hear my screams
fear mounting; my mood glum
as ten sharks now eye me
I sense what's in store; it blo-o-ows

"Won't be long now", I think
till those sharks are arriving
Those teeth they will sink
they will take bites of me
That thought sure does stink
but I cannot deny
it's still hard to conceive this
find I'm too numb to weep
sharks grinning; they'll soon dine on me

When those sharks bite; need I explain it?
Once sharks bite I won't be the same
Can't scream; I'm mute
Now I'm facing my doom
I'm reduced to "shark chow"
now it seems
those sharks will excrete my remains...

Some days you get the shark, some days it gets you... then turns you into poo. Good write here, Paul.
