The Lyrics

I saw the wreath of the teeth as I fell in the fish tank
I felt the nipping of flesh as I tried hard to swim
Hoping for rescue
As they devoured me I screamed but nobody came in

I-I-I piranha!
Why-I-die? Piranha!
Couldn’t flee, those fish biting into me
Into my watery grave for eternity

Knew I was doomed as those fishies consumed all my organs
I crossed on over that day to the heavenly door
God stood there laughing
Sent me back re-incarnated as albacore

I-I-I piranha!
Why-I-die? Piranha!
Oh, I bet this is the tanks that I get
De-skin me Piranha, I don’t like that maker I met

(Insert bubbly solo here)

God stood there laughing
I felt the brine in my gills and saw ocean floor
I-I-I piranha!
Why-I-die? Piranha!
So forlorn I was now a fish reborn
I’m now Mr. Limpett, a cartoony fish by the shore
I’m now Mr. Limpett, a cartoony fish by the shore

Now, then, having properly dispatched Mister Duncan, what shall we do about Mister Bond?
