J: Ah Ah…

B+J: Ah Ah…
B: Mermaid

B: Mermaid
J: Mermaid
B+J: Mermaid Mermaid
J: Mermaid
B: Mermaid
B: Mermaid murmured
Into my ear
The answers to questions
I’m longing to hear.
B+J: Does it relax you
To hear the sound of the land?
Do you, a mermaid, have
Slightly webbed hands?
(AH AH AH)
B+J: Is it normal for a guy to wear
A scuba apparatus
When he makes love in the sea?
Make love to me.
Would it be weird for you
If I touched your fishy half?
It would for me.
B+J: (AH AH AH OH WA-EE-AH WA-EE-AH)
(AH AH AH OH WA-EE-AH WA-EE-AH)
(OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO)
B: Do you have mermaid parties beneath the sea?
J: Am I invited?
(AH…)
B: At these mermaid parties do you smoke seaweed?
B+J: If so, then how do you light it?
(OOO…)
B: Are you the answer to a drunken sailor’s lonely wish?
B: Wish wish wish…
B: Or are you an optical illusion caused by a woman sitting on a rock
Holding half a fish?
J: Half a sexier fish…
B+J: (AH AH AH OH WA-EE-AH WA-EE-AH)
(AH AH AH OH WA-EE-AH WA-EE-AH)
(OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO-A-OOO)
