"Sharks" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Joseph Paul Langlois and Robert Gordon Sinclair....
Sharks don't attack the Irish,
It's mostly Australians.
There's nothing accomplished
By these splashing citizens.
From the Moon down to the surface
Of the Mariana's Trench
I won't send you in a cab when
I can take you there myself then steal a look
Over your shoulder at
The distant lights of your firmament.

When the sharks finished the Irish
And those people from Berlin.
We left our look of the landed
With one of rescue's imminent
From the Moon down to the surface
Of the Mariana's Trench
I won't send you in a cab when
I can take you there myself then steal a look
Over your shoulder at
The chandeliers of your firmament.
It's your firmament, baby.

    General CommentI know that Mariana's trench is the deepest trench that subs will enter, and it's located kind of between Austrailia and Japan. Not close to anything Irish.
    I get the feeling that this is a WWII reference, but I have to give it a few more close listens to tell you more :)
