Baby Shark Song

Yesterday I was one of the teachers in Keisha's children's ministry class at church. Among the songs we sang about God was this one that wasn't related called "Baby Shark". It's one of those songs that has quite a hook (no pun intended), and it goes like this:

Baby shark do-do, do-do, do-do (one hand opens and closes to the beat)
Baby shark do-do, do-do, do-do (one hand opens and closes to the beat)
Baby shark

Mommy shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two flat hands open and close to the beat)
Mommy shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two flat hands open and close to the beat)
Mommy shark

Daddy shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two hands with fingers spread, open and close to the beat)
Daddy shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two hands with fingers spread, open and close to the beat)
Daddy shark

Grandma shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two fists open and close to the beat)
Grandma shark do-do, do-do, do-do (two fists open and close to the beat)
Grandma shark

Grandpa shark do-do, do-do, do-do (left and right forearms in front, open and close to the beat)
Grandpa shark do-do, do-do, do-do (left and right forearms in front, open and close to the beat)
Grandpa shark

I went for a swim, do-do, do-do, do-do (Forward swimming motions with arms, to the beat)
Went for a swim, do-do, do-do, do-do (Forward swimming motions with arms, to the beat)
Went for a swim

Saw a shark, do-do, do-do, do-do (Right hand on top of head, waving to the beat)
Saw a shark, do-do, do-do, do-do (Right hand on top of head, waving to the beat)
Saw a shark

I swam away, do-do, do-do, do-do (Backward swimming motions with arms, to the beat)
Swam away, do-do, do-do, do-do (Backward swimming motions with arms, to the beat)
Swam away

Lost my leg, do-do, do-do, do-do (hop on one leg to the beat)
Lost my leg, do-do, do-do, do-do (hop on one leg to the beat)
Lost my leg

Called 9-1-1, do-do, do-do, do-do (dial cell phone in hand to the beat)
Called 9-1-1, do-do, do-do, do-do (dial cell phone in hand to the beat)
Called 9-1-1

It's too late, do-do, do-do, do-do (finger across neck several times to the beat)
It's too late, do-do, do-do, do-do (finger across neck several times to the beat)
It's too late

Now that's the end, do-do, do-do, do-do (wave hands from center to left and right (finished sign) several times to the beat)
That's the end, do-do, do-do, do-do (wave hands from center to left and right (finished sign) several times to the beat)
That's the end
Sometimes the dumbest songs are the ones that stick with me.

So, what do you think about it?

Thanks, I was trying to remember how the song went as I broke out singing at work. Turns out a co-worker knew the song too. I guess the dumbest songs really do stick the most.

saw this performed at Marbles Kids Museum 3 years ago by a troop from UNC Chapel Hill. It really sticks!
