the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them, pearly white
Just a short sword has MaxHeath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight
the shark bites with his sword, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Sturdy gauntlets wears MaxHeath, dear
So there's not a trace of red
arena Sunday morning
Lies a body on the sand
Someone's standing with his sword there
Is that someone Max the Grand?
Commodus gave an order
After drawing out his knife
Then MaxHeath pierced him in the chest, dear
Was that emperor rash to fight?
Lucilla, Maximum Croweites
Pals of Russell, all around
Oh the line forms on the right dear
Now that Maxie's back in town.
