"Shark In The Water" as written by Tommy Tysper and Markus Sephermanesh....
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

    General CommentSimply put -

    This song is about how she creates drama when she wants her boyfriend (or the guy she likes) close to him.

    Hence why she "cries wolf", talks about sharks in the water (she just wants him to be close to her) etc, etc. It's like making a big deal out of something that doesn't matter, just so that in the end, the two will be a little closer, if only for a little while.

    Also there's a couple of posters here that needs to stop projecting...though I suppose you can't help that, particularly with music.

    General CommentIt is 'Baby there's a shark in the water'
    and then the corrections, 'My head ina dilly' and 'This is more like april fools'

    Its about her boyfriend cheating on her. If you look, shes taking pictures of the man and the woman. The man has a striped shirt on. When she puts the picture on the door, the man to open the door has a striped shirt on. Make sense?

    General CommentOh and I forgot, Its 'Philly' slang for woman. Nowt 'feeling'
    And at he end, she gives the old fashioned radio back and rips of her necklace, more evidence that he was cheating on her, not that she wants him.

    General CommentI believe this song is about someone who's in a relationship and they are actually paranoid about other girls coming around. I know that because of my past relationships i am always quick to worry about every girl who comes up to my girlfriend and i freak out even though its nothing to worry about and then im fine the next day. i believe shes freaking out but then pretty much saying she just wants them. i dont know. thats how i see it. im sure theres another reason.

    General Commentfirst off let me just say that i love song meanings and reading peoples interpretations of music and lyrics. but i will say that sometimes i think we try to over analyze simple lyrics and miss the basic meaning of the song. the song is about her testing her lover, and seeing if she can say anything and he will still be around. she tells him theres a shark in the water just to see if he protects her, she tells him theres something underneath her bed so he can check for her. "But when I'm in doubt, I open my mouth And words come out" whenever she doubts him, she tests his ability to stay with her.

    General CommentI don't get where people are getting the 'cheater' thing from or all these multiple people supposedly involved lol I think that is more what the video is about, not really the song though.

    I think it's about a girl who tells 'little white lies' and 'cries wolf cry' to get attention from her boyfriend/crush/love interest. She just wants his attention so she says these things and maybe she knows she kinda bugs him some times but 'she can't help herself' and 'just wants him in her arms' and it's basically 'harmless' and 'not that serious'.

    Either way, it's a nice, fun summer song like someone said.
