Sometimes I get my head in a dilly
Feeling so lost ticking you off
Now boy, You know me well
Said, I'm that kinda feeling
That kind of soft
That kind of silly

But when I'm in doubt
I open my mouth
And words come out,
Words come out like

Baby there's a shark in the water
There's something underneath my bed
Oh, please believe I said
Baby there's a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon

High in the sky
The song that I'm singing
A sweet little lie
A cry wolf cry
Rather have you lie
So that's why I'm bringing
Some tricks up my sleeve
For noticing me

Oh yeah

I wouldn't cause you any harm
I just want you in my arms
I can't help
I can't help myself

Baby there's a shark in the water
There's something underneath my bed
Oh please believe I said
Baby there's a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon

Better be soon

Right is right
Rules are rules
This is more like april fools
I'm just winding you up, oh

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Please don't make to much of it
It aint that serious
Oh ohh ohhhh

Baby there's a shark in the water
There's something underneath my bed
Oh, please believe I said
Baby there's a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
You better get here soon
Baby there's a shark in the water (x3)
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon

    I think this song is about a girl who is dating a guy and them she starts to realize that hes cheating on her. Like when she says "i caught them barking at the moon" it's like "I caught my boyfriend cheating on me with this other girl" and when she says "Sweet little lie" its like him saying "No I love you I'm not cheating on you" So.. yeah thats what i think the song means

    I think this is basically how this guy i cheating on her, and how she loves him, but she cant be with him because he is a cheater. This is my super short simple interpretation.

    It's about these two friends, and one of them likes the other, even though the person being sung about doesn't feel the same way. So, to prove her feelings, and that she is better than his girlfriend, she finds out that his girlfriend is cheating on him, and reveals the truth to him. He dumps the girlfriend for his friend.

    Shark in the water means always pretending to not love someone when they are around their love but deep inside you love the person with all your might

    Just like some certain people naa call no name. Hot skull for life
