She came     down from        Cincinna-       ti
It took her three days on the train.
Lookin' for some peace and qui- et
Hoped to see the sun again
But now she lives down by the ocean
She's takin' care to look for sharks
They hang out in the lo- cal bars
And they feed right after dark

 Can't you feel 'em cir-clin', honey?  Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?  
You got fins to the left, fins to the right, and you're the only bait in town. 
You got fins to the left, fins to the right, and you're the only bait in town.

Additional lyrics:

She's saving up all of her money
Wants to head it south in May
Maybe roll in the sand with a rock 'n' roll man
Somewhere down Montserrat way.
But the money's good in the season
Helps to lighten her load
Boys keep her high as the months go by
She's getting postcards from the road.


Sailed off to Antigua
It took her three days on a boat
Lookin' for some peace and quiet
Maybe keep her dreams afloat
But now she feels like a remora
'Cause the school's still close at hand
Just behind the reef are the big white teeth
Of the sharks that can swim on the land.
