The Lyrics

I originally posted this idea back in 2005 (During what I believe was my first year of parody writing and this song was... Let me double check... Number 54 out of now 500-something parodies). It was in need of a touch up and there's no better excuse to do so but the Pink Floyd round of Artistry!
The killer fish will make a splash
The killer fish will rake in cash
He jumps through flames
For old sardines and bass
But that’s not all his teeth are going to gnash

The killer fish is in the bowl
The killer fish swallows your sole
The water holds him so he can’t beach on the shore
Don’t be afraid the water park’s secure

But if the tank breaks open
We shall meet our doom!
And he will first consume his trainer Bill!
Then he’ll have a la mode all of us tourists too
You’ll see him on the Dark Side of Shamu!

Oooooooh, Nooooooo, Goooooo!!!!

[In the background the sounds of whale calls… That sound kind of like evil cackling]

The killer fish is under fed
The killer fish you’ve got to dread
Godzilla’s tame, King Kong is lame
Be scared of the whale that lost his brain!

He’ll start a war
Against the land and sea!
Those walruses he’ll add to his army!

He’s got a blood thirst that sightseers should fear!
No trout can quench his hunger here
(Ohhhhhh!!! Noooooo!!!!)
And if your hand is bit while giving goldfish food
(Pain! Pain! Pain!!!!)
You know they’ve joined the Dark Side of Shamu!


“I can’t think of anything except… KILL ALL THE HUMANS!!!
I’m pretty ominous! Bwa! Ha! Ha!!!”
“BWA!!! HA!!!! HA!!!!”

Tourists he’ll munch
On his killing spree
Won’t be with haste
Watch them squeal

He’s sick of his job
Living in a crate
Theme park’s unjust
He’s their slave!

Cause all that they give
Is fish on their reel
But he’s no small fry
He needs a damn meal!

He once entertained
The girls and boys
By jumping through hoops
But how he just slays!

So read my last tweet
Keep onto your receipt
If he takes a bite
You’ll get a discount Sprite!

There’s no need to frown
The Orca’s been hurled
In aquariums
So everything’s great at Sea World, Cause Shamu...
Is trapped and he’ll never get loose!!!

[Spoken Outro]
“There no Dark Side of Shamu but look out for the sharks”

Great job.

Another horror film plot in the making. Some captive whales and porpoises have attacked their trainers.

This Brain Damaged Floyd fan approves heartily, especially for tagging on the other voices.

(Artistry) Help us Aquaman! This parody gave me a hilarious mental image of an infantry of walruses (walrii?) in old European uniforms marching in step through Sea World.

(Artistry) Darth Porpoise- "Shamu, I am your father. Join me, on the dark side." Shamu- "Okay, you got it Paps!" And thus Shamu Skywalker became evil, and Matthias chronicled his tails..... and his TALES. Great write man!

You know, killer whales don't really care for humans (as a meal--though as we all know--Killer Shamu has actually happened because its hard to distinguish some things for a whale). . .but this reminds me of my "Watch Out for Fish" taken to a very big level. . .that's a good thing though. I loved the rhyming and pacing, a few minor eyebrow moments (like discount Sprite-since SeaWorld is Pepsi Products, but that's just being picky ain't it) . Silly stuff aside, this was an excellent parody Matty, very fun might I add, and totally fits the original song AND the time of year.

(Artistry) Holy crap, that's one crazy whale. Good thing in real life they kill sharks in most amusing ways, eh? Srsly, look up how killer whales kill sharks, it's a riot. Great parody here, 555!

(Ages Final) That's one "killer" whale!!! He did that on "porpoise!" That's taking "Jaws" to another level, except it deals with killer whales instead of sharks. I guess Jesse never should've freed Willy!! It also made me regret to giving a donation to the "Save The Whales" foundation if I had known whales would be murderous and violent! LOL! Beware of all walrii in the sea...or walruses, or whatever plural they're called!!! Here's some killer 5's!
