Lyrics
Saw a shark today
Ate a man and then, just swam away
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

Saw a snake today
Ate another snake, then squirmed away
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

Met a star today
Looked like flesh and bone and tooth decay
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

Oh, oh, no
Oh, oh, no
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

No, no, not I
No, not me
No, no, not I
No, not me

Ate a man today
Ate a man and then, just walked away
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, whoa
But it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK
No, it wasn't OK
