Life Beyond The Deep.
Way down deep at the bottom of the sea
where life was busy, as busy as could be.
When the earth was sleeping the oceans were alive.
They say night time is the best when taking a dive.
Way down deep amidst the coral reef
there were fish as big as horses with very sharp long teeth.
Then shoals upon shoals, of all shapes and sizes.
Lobsters and crabs and crabs in disguises.
There are sharks big and small always looking for a meal.
Sting-rays, jelly-fish and the electric - eel.
Oysters and star-fish swim along the ocean bed
and in between the seaweed there are fish that like to
hide their head.
And all this goes on while your
in your beds fast asleep
When you think all's well and quiet
there's life beyond the deep.
