The Lyrics

If you're not too familiar with Jaws you might not understand all of his parody. If you are you're going to love it. At least I hope you will. Please?!
When you see this bloody sign that reads: “The beach is closed”
It is all because of that…
Large Shark!

Large Shark, Oh no!

We’re hanging out on Amity Island
Party with some drunk teenagers
They are now dead teenagers!

This beast is named Jaws he’s very unstable
And he eats swimmers like they are Big Macs
They’ve talked to the Mayor but he’s not too worried
They’ll open up the beach again on Thursday!

This large shark is a bit of a problem
Teeth are like a blender
Large shark! Scary! (This large shark’s scary!)
Large shark! Hungry! Large Shark!
Large Shark! Angry! Large Shark!
Large Shark! Starving! Large Shark!
(Backstroke into his mouth)
Large Shark! Thirsty! Large Shark!
(Scuba dive into his mouth)

Quint says: “Give me your jewels
Cause my tools hunt down large sharks!”
They think he’s on crack so they’re ignoring his deal
Until the next attack and another kid’s a snack

Splatter in the ocean
Splatter on the coastline
Splatter on that surfboard
Splatter is a goldmine

The large shark is an enormous beast and he’ll make you his dinner!
Large shark’s spooky! (Large Shark’s spooky!)
Large Shark! Under attack!
Large Shark! Under attack!

Screaming while they’re bleeding
Cause Jaws keeps on eating
At the next town meeting
They hope Quint is succeeding
Cause this shark’s hungry!
Yeah! This shark is hungry!
This shark is hungry and tourists he shovels down
Shovels down! Shovels down! Shovels down!

Shotguns keep on booming!
But that shark ain’t bruising easy!
Folks came all over the Earth just to kill Jaws!
Quint he keeps on shooting
Bullets he’s just losing, Baby!
Spunky giant shark! Spunky giant shark!

Armed with Matt Hooper
He knows every detail
How to get Jaws impaled

They’re out on the boat but it needs to be bigger
Try to aim your harpoon and then pull the trigger!

This large shark is a pain in the rump and Quint just got devoured
Large Shark! Angry! (This large shark’s angry!)
Large shark! Hungry! Large shark!
Large shark! Thirsty! Large shark!
Large shark! Evil! Large shark!
(Jaws wants humans for a snack, Yeah!)
Large Shark! Clever! Large shark!
(Jaws won’t settle for a Crunchwrap, Nah!)

Bang! Bang! Bang! Goes the gun! (Nothing!)
Matt goes in the water, Watch out!
Cage! Cage! Cage! Thinks he’s safe (He’s wrong!)
Jaws just ate you
Fangs! Fangs! Fangs! In his mouth ripping!
Stupid shark just ate Matt Hooper
Dang! Dang! Dang! Down to just Martin!
He is sure doomed!
Sink! Sink! Sink! Dunks the boat! (Oh no!)
Turned into clam chowder!
Tank! Tank! Tank! Throw it in his mouth!
Bang! Bang! (Goes the gun! Blammo!)
Bang! Bang! (Goes the gun!)
Bang! Bang! (Jaws explodes Yippie!)
Bang! Bang!

You’re what?

Out here… Stranded!

Large shark! Deceased! Large Shark!
Large Shark! Crispy! Large Shark!
(Yeah, That monster is now dead!)
Large Shark! Blammo! Large Shark!
(Yeah, That fishy is now dead!)
Large! Spooky! Large Shark!
You still can’t go swimming
Don’t try to go snorkeling
Part 2, Large Shark!

"You're gonna need a bigger parody!". Giving you 5 "Quints". I "get" and appreciate this. My wife still thinks "Shark Week" on TV is about pool players. ;D

Bloddy good - now where is The Blob when you need him? Jaws meets The Blob.

Wow, I never realized just how repetitive this TOS really is. . .good job though

2Eagle... I might do a Blob parody I was thinking about it actually... Perhaps "Gelatinous Blob!" to Green Day's "21 Guns". I watched these two movies (Jaws and The Birds) on my 31 Days Of Horror project so once I watch the Blob I might do a review about it too.

(ABC) You really sunk your teeth into that one...LOL!! P.S. I came real close to posting a Love Shack parody for this contest. That would have been something!

You took a bite outta this one! Nice job!

ABC: Nice work describing a great movie to a great song. One problem I noticed however, I don't know if the album (or single) version of the song is longer than the one in the video...but it seemed to me like there were many more lines in your parody than there were in the song and I got lost a couple times. Nice work though!

I would be happy to never listen to a B52s song ever again. That being said, that was a pretty cool synopsis of the movie, although it is strange you werent able to work Sheriff Brody into the lyrics. You worked the damned repetition and that odd break in the middle into the parody nicely.

(ABC) That movie scared me so much when I was little, I was so afraid to go into the ocean for the first time. Awesome job!

See above. . .one thing I have to add is I am not all that familiar with Jaws, so some of it went over my head, but overall I could still get it. . .

Really funny stuff...but it seems like your lyrics didn't match up with the OS (too many lines in chorus etc). Still really good work, I particularly liked the "tin rooof/rusted"-"out heere/stranded" lines, good job!

Sure hunt down some parodies with this one, 555 lbs of bait.

(Artistry) Whoops, guess there's a longer version of the song I didn't post. My bad. Anyway, despite having not seen or read much about Jaws (that's not related to the sequels), this was a pretty fun read. 555!
