LONG AGO, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE YESTREDAY
IT HAPPENED THE STRANGEST WAY, MY FIRST LOVE AFFAIR
SUMMER DAY, I'M SWIMMING ALONE IN THE OCEAN
WHEN SUDDENLY I GOT A NOTION, THAT SOMEONE WAS WATCHING
AND I TURNED TO SEE WHO WAS THERE

I SAW THIS BEAUTIFUL LADY, BEAUTIFUL LADY,
ONLY A HEARTBEAT AWAY FROM ME
TWO SEASHELL EARRINGS WERE ALL THAT SHE WORE,
SHE WAS SMILING AND SAYING TO ME

COME AWAY, I'LL SHOW YOU MY HOME IN THE OCEAN
AND STRANGER IF YOU GET A NOTION, THAT YOU'D LIKE TO LOVE ME
WELL JUST DO WHAT YOU FEEL, DO WHAT YOU FEEL, OH…

MERMAID, MERMAID, I WANT YOU BUT I'M AFRAID,
PART FISH, PART GIRL, I DON'T FIT YOUR WORLD
MERMAID, MERMAID, I WANT YOU BUT I'M AFRAID,
PART FISH, PART GIRL, OH…

SHE PUT HER SWEETARMS AROUND ME, SWEETARMS AROUND ME,
EVER SO GENTLY SHE PULLED ME DOWN
NEXT THING I KNEW WAS THE SOFT OCEAN FLOOR
AND THE FIRST TASTE OF LOVE THAT I FOUND

LET ME STAY, I'LL LIVE IN YOUR HOME IN THE OCEAN,
I'LL GIVE YOU MY LOVE AND DEVOTION
BUT SADLY SHE TOLD ME, YOU MUST GO BACK AND FIND, A GIRL OF YOUR KIND
SO I LEFT HER BEHIND, NOW THE OCEAN REMINDS ME

MERMAID, MERMAID, IT'S TRUE LOVE THAT WE MADE
PART FISH, PART GIRL, I STILL MISS YOUR WORLD
