Gilad, Gilad, sweet Gilad, how could you have known?
How could you have possibly foreseen
That the shark was cruel, that he was mean?

He came to capture-twas his sole intent
And you, so wisely, tried to run.
But the deadly shark would not be stopped,
He was not to be outdone.

You saw the danger and proposed a game
Hide-and-seek? the shark agreed.
To be played in peace, side by side
Two sea creatures from a different breed.

Gilad, Gilad, sweet Gilad how could you have known?
How could you have possibly foreseen
That the shark was cruel, that he was mean?

Hide-and-seek, hide-and-seek,
You always smiled, just happy to be.
But as the game continued on,
The shark swore you his enemy.

And when you hid during one of the games,
The shark swam furiously off to his school.
He gathered them all, sharpened his teeth,
And returned with a brand new rule.

No more system of buddies and friends,
They attacked and floated you away.
You had cried for love, for unity, for peace
And now? We're awaiting your return every day.

Gilad, Gilad, sweet Gilad, how could you have known?
How could you have possibly foreseen
That the shark was cruel, that he was mean?
