Mermaids Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She was a catch,
We were a match
I was the match that would fire up her snatch
There was a catch
I was no match
I was fired from her crutch
Now I sit around and watch
The mermaids sun themselves out on the rocks
They are beyond our touch
I watch and watch
Wave at me
They wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea
Verse 2
All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the sea
Verse 3
I believe in God
I believe in mermaids too
I believe in seventy two virgins on a chain (why not, why not)
I believe in the rapture
For I've seen your face
On the floor of the ocean
At the bottom of the ray
Verse 4
I do drive a relentless course
I do husband alertness course
I do mermaid alertness course
Watch them out on the rocks
Wave at me
Wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea
Verse 5
All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea
Verse 6
For all the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea
