Body of a shark, arms and legs like man
created to cure cancer by his evil scientist dad
How old is a shark? Apparently no-one knows
’cause sharks just keep on living, that’s how the story goes

The dad saw no harm, he was quite a fool
mutating shark with man, messing with natural gene pools
Enter team of six, walk in single file
picked off one by one and killed in Boaz style

He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he’s a cross between a shark and a man
He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he is Sharkman, man he’s quite a shark!

Never see the action, never see his face
always spot the actors crouching out of place (rope)
Desperate for some violence, Boaz makes them part
unbeknownst to them, he is a land walking shark
Maria’s shoes were ruined (Oh God, these shoes are ruined), Bernie lost a leg
the blonde girl got blisters, and the old man lost his head

He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he’s a cross between a shark and a man
He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he is Sharkman, man he’s quite a shark!

“I give you the future of the human race”

“Now he’s more shark than human”

“You think you can handle me?”
“I’ll die trying”

“Wouldn’t touch that, nothing in here is quite what it seems”

“Did you notice anything weird about this place?”
“You mean besides Dr Mangle over there with the three fingers, the pig with the three eyes, no, I’d say everything’s perfectly normal round here”

“Why are these people still alive?”

He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he’s a cross between a shark and a man
He is Sharkman (Sharkman), he is Sharkman (Sharkman)
he is Sharkman, man he’s quite a shark!
