Shark song... help with words?

I'm thinking of the one that starts:
Baby shark do-do-di-do-do
Baby shark do-do-di-do
Baby shark do-do-di-do-do
Di-do-do-do-do-do

And works up through the family to Grandma shark do-do-di-do-do etc.

What are the verses in between? And are there any verses after Grandma shark?

I can remember that the actions make progressively bigger until you get to Grandma, and the action for her is jaws movement with fists rather than flat hands.

I think my Guides would enjoy this song, but I want to be confident of the verses before I start teaching it, and I know someone on here (probably lots of people!) will know!
Thanks in advance,

(all these are the first lines of verses which carry on like the first and all have actions)

Went for a swim -do -do - do -do
Saw a shark - do -do -do -do
Swam away -do - do - do -do
SHARK ATTACK -do -do- do -do
Lost an arm -do -do -do -do
Lost a leg -do -do -do- do
CPR -do -do -do -do
Went to heaven -do -do -do -do

Then we finish with "And came back as a baby shark" Which then starts the song again :D



(This is Beckyyyyyyy and I's favourite song which we annoy the rest of the rangers with!)
