and e Origins: Baby Shark (Kleiner Hai ) Song (15) Baby Shark (Kleiner Hai ) German & English Song 04 Apr 12


Greetings,

I am interested in finding more about the children's song "Baby Shark" -- called "Kleiner Hai" in German.   There are numerous videos in German and English on Youtube but I haven't been able to date the song...

Could you please post when & where you first learned the song?


BABY SHARK SONG

The fun of this song is in the actions. As the shark gets bigger, so does its mouth you make with your hands and arms.

Lyrics:
(shark mouth with hands connected at wrist)
Baby shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Baby shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Baby shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh

(shark mouth with full arms)
Daddy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Daddy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Daddy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Daddy shark

(same as Daddy, but with fists instead of fingers to look like no teeth)
Grandpa shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Grandpa shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Grandpa shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Grandpa shark

(swimming crawl motion with arms)
Swimmer dude, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swimmer dude, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swimmer dude, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swimmer dude

(hand on top of head like shark fin. Other hand rubbing stomache with hungry look on face.)
Hungry shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Hungry shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Hungry shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Hungry shark

(backcrawl swimming motion with arms)
Swam away, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam away, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam away, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam away

(same backcrawl, with very frantic actions)
Swam too slow, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam too slow, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam too slow, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Swam too slow

(hop on one leg to beat)
Lost a leg, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Lost a leg, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Lost a leg, Doh-doh, doh, doh

(hand on head like shark fin. Other hand rubs stomache with a very satisfied look on face.)
Happy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Happy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Happy shark, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Happy shark

(push cellphone numbers to beat)
Call 9-1-1, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Call 9-1-1, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Call 9-1-1, Doh-doh, doh, doh
Call 9-1-1

(make any dieing actions you want. finger across neck, grabbing heart, fainting away,...)
It's too late, Doh-doh, doh, doh
It's too late, Doh-doh, doh, doh
It's too late, Doh-doh, doh, doh
It's too late

(point to your bottom)
That's the end, Doh-doh, doh, doh
That's the end, Doh-doh, doh, doh
That's the end, Doh-doh, doh, doh
That's the end


Notes: I have been able to find a GERMAN version of this song. I am a little surprised that I can't find it mentioned on Mudcat.
