Your mother said
Don't go near the shoreline
There are creatures there to fear

With eyes that shine
Blood in their gumlines
They will swallow you down whole
You should know

Down in the belly of the beast
Play me a tin can
You will be released

But you paid no mind
Walked to the shoreline
To watch that swirling sea

And your mother wept
As into the dark you were swept
"Oh, someone bring my boy back to me!"

Down in the belly of the beast
Play me a tin can
You will be released

It's cold and dark
In the absence of fire
Hang on tight now
There's good news coming down the wire

Down in the belly of the beast
Play me a tin can
You will be released

Play me a tin can
HEY HEY HEY HEY
Play me a tin can
HEY HEY HEY HEY
Play me a tin can
HEY HEY HEY HEY
Play me a tin can
HEY HEY HEY HEY
