"You Better Swim" is the 14th track from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie soundtrack. It was performed by the British heavy metal band Motörhead.


Lyrics

I got no reason to be paranoid
What's on the hook that's what I avoid
I was born underwater without a sound
With my fins in the drink and the sea all around
You better swim
Baby, you better swim
I got a smile like a tiger shark
You know I'm gonna do you in
I'm short and I'm tall, and I'm black and I'm white
Sometimes I'll be wrong, sometimes I'll be right
I'm iron and steel, and I'm bad to the bone
You come looking for trouble, but you come alone
You better swim
Baby, you better swim
I got a smile like a tiger shark
You know I'm gonna do you in
Come on, Spongey!

[instrumental]

I've seen 'em come, and I've seen 'em go
I've seen big things and big people that nobody knows
I'm talking in pictures and I'm paintin' in black
I'm telling you, fish-face, you ain't never coming back
You better swim
Baby, you better swim
I got a smile like a tiger shark
Now I'm gonna do you in
Yeah!
