Lyrics:

Blue fin, blue fin, blue fin, comin' fast
Blue fin, blue fin
Red shark, red shark, on the rise
Red shark
Close your eyes

Take me where my baby's hiding out
Find that cheatin' gal
Spinner, spinner, spinner, turn the wheel
Spinner, spinner
Watch your course
Red shark, red shark, move on in
Red shark
For the kill
I can't die until my baby says it's over
Gotta hear it face to face

I love you darlin', it's a cryin' shame
The way you run around like you're in a big game
I'm so unhappy I could cry every time I think about you
Boo-hoo

Blue fin, blue fin, blue fin, comin' fast
Blue fin, blue fin
Red shark, red shark, on the rise
Red shark
Close your eyes
Take me where my baby's hiding out
Find that cheatin' gal

I love you darlin', it's a cryin' shame
The way you run around like you're in a big game
I sit around in a trance all day and think about you
All the time

Spinner, spinner, spinner, spin that wheel
Spinner, spinner, watch your course
Red shark, red shark, move on in
Red shark
For the kill
I can't die until my baby says it's over
Gotta hear it face to face

I love you darlin', it's a cryin' shame
The way you run around like you're in a big game
It's so unfair that you're so happy when I'm hurtin' so bad
Boo-hoo

I love you darlin', it's a cryin' shame
The way you run around like you're in a big game
I'm so unhappy I could cry every time I think about you
Boo-hoo

I love you darlin', it's a cryin' shame
The way you run around like you're in a big game
I sit around in a trance all day and think about you
All the time
