And he shows them pearly white,
And the AEC has figures, (*)
But it keeps them out of sight.
When the shark bites with is teeth, dear,
Scarlet billows start to spread;
Strontium 90 shows no color,
But it leaves you just as dead.
Strontium 90 leaves no clue, dear,
It’s not like thalidomide;
If the baby is deformed, dear,
You just blame the other side.
Strontium 90 leaves no trace, dear,
No one knows who gets the knife,
You can always say that background
Radiation took the life.
In your milk on Monday mornig
Comes an extra little kick,
Well, the taste is just the same, dear,
But the Geiger counters tick.
Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear,
And he shows them, pearly white;
And the AEC has figures,
But they keep them out of sight.
