Sharks
Morphine Lyrics


Sharks patrol these waters
Sharks patrol these waters
Don't let your fingers dangle in the water

And don't you worry about the day-glow orange life preserver
It won't save you
It won't save you
Swim for the shore just as fast as you're able
Swim like a motherfucker
Swim

Fast as that the scene shifts to now
The ever glorious now
The ever present, now
Dredged in flour and deep-fat-fried
And cooled on paper towels and then devoured

You know
I spent fifteen years in a life raft
Fifteen years in a life raft
Now I got something to say
Stay in your life boats, people
Stay in your life boats, people
It's murder out there, murder out there
Sharks patrol these waters
Sharks patrol these waters, hey
Don't you worry about the day-glow orange life preserver
It won't save you
It won't save you
Swim for the shore just as fast as you're able
Swim

This song is used to attract actual sharks! I saw it on Shark Week! They played it on an underwater speaker and the vibrations from the bass and sax actually attracted sharks. The show was called “Isle of Jaws”

Omg, that’s why I’ve always had this relationship with this song. It resonates on many platforms. Amazing. I won’t even Google it. 😎

I know what that last part yes I do I know that last part… He’s tearing into you today he’s throwing it up in the air and knocking you around with his nose… His eyes are closed… It doesn’t matter as long as he can devour you! And don’t forget, sharks patrol these waters❤
