Dickie Goodman – Mr. Jaws lyrics

We are here on the beach
Where a giant shark has
Just eaten a girl swimmer
Well, Mr. Jaws, how was it


And what did she say
When you grabbed her

'Please, Mr., please'

I know sharks are stupid
But what did you think when
You took that first bite

'How sweet it is'

Mr. Jaws, before you
Swim out to sea
Have you anything else to say

'Why can't we be friends
Why can't we be friends'

With me now is the local sheriff
Sheriff Brody, the shark
Wll be back for lunch
What do you intend to do

'Do a little dance
Make a little love
Get down tonight'

Just arriving is
Oceanographer Matt Hooper
Sir, if someone is
Attacked by a shark
What should they do

'Do the hustle'

We are going aboard the
Fishing boat of Captain Quint
Captain, will you be able
To catch this giant shark

'i will, I will, I will'

Thank you, captain, captain

'i will, I will, I will'

Captain, captain

When you catch
One of these sharks
What do you feel like

'Like a Rhinestone Cowboy'

We've just sighted
The shark again
He's coming straight for us
Captain Quint is shouting
Something at him

'Get you, baby
One of these nights'

Hey, Jaws, the captain says
He's going to catch you
What do you think of that

'Jive talkin'

Uh-oh, here he comes again

They've hit him
Mr. Jaws, why doesn't
Anything seem to hurt you

'Big boys don't cry
Big boys don't cry'

He's coming
Right onto the boat
Mr. Jaws, why are
You grabbing my hand

'Wouldn't you give
Your hand to a friend'

No, wait, Mr. Jaws
That's not the way this
Record is supposed to end
Help, help (glub, glub)
