It's summer 2001
and sharks in the waters frighten everyone
As reports of attacks hit the waves
the love for swimming goes unshaved
Where would the next visit be?
snorkeling goes on totally free
Sharks spotted on the reef
oh, what a blessed relief
Sharks making news galore
coming near the shore like never before
Biting and ripping their way
a few haven't escaped the fray
Be that as it may
sharks in the waters don't stop the day.
