  • Sometimes I get my head in a dilly
    Feeling so lost, ticking you off
    Now boy, you know me well
    Said, I'm that kind of 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, I cry wolf, cry
    Rabbit out the hat, yes that's what I'm bringing
    Some tricks up my sleeve, for noticing me
    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 Fool's
    I'm just winding you up, oh
    Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
    Please don't make too much of it
    It ain't that serious

    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
    Baby, there's a shark in the water
    Baby, there's a shark in the water
    I caught them barking at the moon
    Better be soon Writer/s: Markus Sephermanesh, Tommy Tysper
