The Lyrics

Poo, what a shark does
Ignore 'em because
They feed on people all day
Just because they have jaws

While geese do fine with beaks, and gulls
Will live another day
Because a prawn swims up to feed on
For a beak, a beak to capture prey

Screw what piranha do
Don't be like a shark, be like a shark
Screw what piranha do
Don't be like a shark, be like a shark

Don't be deceived
By big gars, man-o-wars, and sushi bars
Electric eels

Sayin' choose
Refuse, you silly goose
Reject rods and reels

You can swim, you can swim, you can swim, you can swim
But you can't be seals

Ducks won't deride you
It's go bills, and no gills, and go bills, and no gills

Eschew what piranha do
Don't be like a shark, be like a shark
Screw what piranha do
Don't be like a shark, be like a shark

[guitar solo]

Be like the fauna, gulls
Like the aerial fauna
Like the avaian fauna

Like the grouse, like the geese
Like the birds in the trees, tucans

Whooping cranes, whooping cranes
Whooping cranes, whooping cranes

Canary, teal, canary, teal
Do not feed the piranha
Cockatoo it, cockatoo it

Weathervanes, weathervanes
Weathervanes, weathervanes

I've never even seen that movie yet! Hopefully someday.
