He swims and he lurks in the watery deep
But unlike the wolf, he's not hunting for sheep.
Smaller than him he will eat any fish
But even us humans could be on his dish.
In the whole ocean
He can smell one drop of your blood.
Been swimming for a while?
Get a move on you should
Not safe in the light,
Not safe in the dark,
If you swim through his water,
You may meet - the shark.
