"Dead Shark" as written by and Phair....
Don't be so rude.
I was only trying to make conversation.
Pay back or down.?
This is not going anywhere.?

Got a dead shark on our hands.
Got a dead shark on our hands.
Got a dead shark on our hands.

I'm just trying to get a handle on this
I'm just trying to figure out where I stand.
I'm just trying.
So sue me for trying

Do I just have a problem?
Or did you also think that this was hot.

I really hate talking to you on the telephone.
Can't we just work it out.
Let you come on over.
Can't we just work it out.
Stay here and mine?

I'm not looking over my shoulder.
I'm not gazing up at the stars.
I'm not thinking 5 years in the future.
I'm just wondering where you'll sleep tonight.

Do I just have a problem?
Or did you also think that this was hot.

I'm looking over my shoulder.
I'm gazing up at the stars.
I'm not thinking 5 years in the future.
I'm just wondering where you'll stay tonight.

    General CommentBecause my friend Nina pointed out that a shark is like a relationship; it has to keep moving or it will die.

    General CommentIt's also a line from Woody Allen's Annie Hall , a movie about a neurotic relationship. They're discussing their future years together but he thinks to himself, "we have a dead shark on our hands."

    General CommentThese lyrics are also wrong in some sections.

    I really hate talking to you on the telephone.
    Can't we just work it out.
    Let you come on over. (is - "Can't you come on over?)
    Can't we just work it out.
    stay here and mine? ("Won't you just stay here tonight?")
