Baby, there’s a shark in the water

Ever since I heard this song I can’t get it out of my head.  I’ve heard other songs by her, unknowingly, probably on Gossip Girl but after hearing this song, I’m hooked.

VV Brown – “Shark in the Water”

Sometimes I get my head in a dilly
Feeling so lost, ticking you off
Now boy, you know me well
Said, I’m that kinda feeling
That kind of soft
That kind of silly

But when I’m in doubt
I open my mouth
And words come out,
words come out like

Baby there’s a shark in the water
There’s something underneath my bed
Oh, please believe I said
Baby there’s a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon

High in the sky
the song that I’m singing
A sweet little lie
A cry wolf cry
Rather have you lie
So that’s why I’m bringing
some tricks up my sleeve
for noticing me

Oh yeah

I wouldn’t cause you any harm
I just want you in my arms
I can’t help
I can’t help myself

Baby there’s a shark in the water
There’s something underneath my bed
Oh please believe I said
Baby there’s a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon
Better be soon

Right is right
Rules are rules
This is more like April fools
I’m just winding you up, oh

Jack be nimble
Jack be quick
Please don’t make to much of it
It ain’t that serious
oh ohh ohhhh

Baby there’s a shark in the water
There’s something underneath my bed
Oh, please believe I said
Baby there’s a shark in the water
I caught them barking at the moon
You better get here soon
Baby there’s a shark in the water (x3)
I caught them barking at the moon
Better be soon

The music video is a bit misleading (there are two of them, this one and the one that features the cast of Degrassi, which while maybe more fitting is meh, though it does take place in a circus), from what I can gather from the lyrics I think it’s more about crying wolf and making a big deal of a little thing so you can get closer to that guy you’re attracted to.  And yeah, it could be a bit annoying, but essentially I think we all like to feel needed.

And I think many girls are guilty of this.  Like making a big deal of a spider and calling that strong guy the floor up to save you from it.  Or pretending that you’re scared of walking home, so you can get that hot guy to walk you home, you know the one. ;]  She was featured on an episode of “World of Jenks” and she seems so down to earth, I encourage you to watch not only the episode but the show – I think it’s brilliant.  She’s brilliant too, and I highly recommend her music – it’s fun and bouncy, but her song “Crazy, Amazing” is just that.  And I’m sure you’ve heard her song “L.O.V.E.” before, or even “Shark in the Water” because they’re being used in ads currently.  She’s getting bigger, and it’s well deserved.
