Original Lyrics[edit | edit source]

I'm a shark fighter
I fight sharks
I fight 'em in the water
Cuz that's where they are
When I smell blood
I come running
Better put 'em in a shark cage
Cuz my life
To hunt down the creature I despise
It's full of danger
Whose eyes
Those dead black marbles
They call eyes
This rhyme tells the story of the

(Chorus)
Shark Fighter
Toughest man in the sea
Shark Fighter
With his wavy blonde hair
Flowing so freely


I had a girl who was precious to me
But a shark took her away, you see
Now I fight sharks not for money,
But for love
And that ain't funny, yo.
And here's why
I will avenge a lady with my life
Or until I die in a fight
Against the underwater army of the night
This rhyme tells the story of the

(Chorus)
His only goal is a shark casserole
His only creed is to make sharks bleed
He is not mean, he's just getting even
He will not die 'til all sharks fry
I gots me a knife
A bandanna and a topaz necklace
Yeah I'm extremely reckless
I ride an otter like a motorcycle
Yeah I'm not kidding man
Yeah I'm not kidding man
Yeah I'm not kidding man
You know I'm just a...

(Chorus)
His only goal is a shark casserole
His only creed is to make sharks bleed
He is not mean, he's just getting even
He will not die 'til all sharks fry

Training Montage Lyrics[edit | edit source]

(Hey!)

I'm a shark fighter
I fight sharks
I fight 'em in the water
Cuz that's where they are
When I smell blood
I come running...

(Yeah! Ice cream!)

Cuz my life
To hunt down the creature I despise
It's full of danger
Whose eyes
Those dead black marbles
They call eyes
This rhyme tells the...

(Where's Crash?!)

Shark Fighter
Toughest man in the sea
Shark Fighter
With his wavy blonde hair
Flowing so free...

(The Aquabats Super Show will be right back!)

Live Performances[edit | edit source]

Notable Live Performances[edit | edit source]

Shark Fighter! has been a regular part of the lineup for the last few big shows since the release of the album.

It was played at

  • The HOB San Diego on 7/18/2013
  • Warped Tour in Pomona on 6/21/2013

On-Stage Antics[edit | edit source]

The timing and antics of this song vary, but usually involve inflatable sharks being thrown into the audience, much like Pool Party. During performances at the Warped Tour, one of the stage managers who looked like Hulk Hogan would come out and slay an inflatable shark with a huge knife.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although it was probably an inside joke, The Aquabats stated during the Warped Tour that the song was written in honor of the Stage Manager who was in charge of their stage. This was probably because he looked very tough and masculine, and also probably was done in order to lighten his mood, as he got ticked off at their repeatedly over-time sets.
