I got no reason to be paranoid
What's on the hook that's what I avoid
I was born underwater without a sound
With my friends in the drink and the sea all around

You better swim
Baby, you better swim
You better swim like a tigershark
Or I'm gonna do you in

I'm sorry when I'm told that I'm black and I'm white
Sometimes I'll be wrong, sometimes I'll be right
I'm higher than a seal, and I'm bad to the bone
You go looking for touble, but you come alone

You better swim
Baby, you better swim
You better swim like a tigershark
Or I'm gonna do you in

Come on spongey!

I see them come, and I see them go
I see big things and big people that nobody knows
I'm talking at pictures and I'm paintin 'em black
I'm telling you, fish-face, you ain't never coming back

You better swim
Baby, you better swim
You better swim like a tigershark
Or I'm gonna do you in
Yeah
