The Lyrics

I always thought the song was called "Into the Great White Open," and today I thought up this shark parody of the song. The first verse is all made up, while the other verses tell the story of the creation of Jaws. Enjoy!
Freddy waited till he finished high school
Tried oceanography and got a degree
He saw a shark the day he started his job
And it's mouth was wide open

Thought he'd get eaten up before he reached shore
He couldn't handle seeing the ocean floor
He saw that great white shark had eaten a snack
The guy was soon in it

Into the great white's stomach
Under that sea of blue
It's mouth was way wide open,
The man, it mistook for food


Then Peter Benchley, he created a book
He sold the movie rights to some guy named Steve
It was the blockbuster of '75
Then they made some sequels

That Steven Spielberg had films that were classics
His shark's a movie star, with four different films
After the fourth one, said "I don't see a sequel"
The screenplay is still dopin'

Into the great white's stomach
Every Jaws film since 2
When its mouth is wide open,
It just might think that you're food

Into the great white's stomach
Fishies and lots of food
It's mouth is way wide open
Almost as bad as Jaws 2

First line with "Freddy" and "High School" made me think that this was gonna be about Freddy Kreuger and some bad naightmares. Intentional? Kudos if so!

Though Jaws 4 was the really bad movie, and racist too, the shark ate a lot of white people but spit out the only black.
