The Mermaid
 
T´was Friday morn when we set sail
And we were not fare from land
When the captain, he spied a lovely mermaid
With a comb and a glass in her hand
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll (let em roll)
And the stormy winds may blow (let em blow)
While we poor sailors go skipping to the top
And the landlubbers lie down below (below, below)
And the landlubbers lie down below
 
And up spoke the captain og our gallant ship
And a well-spoken man was he
I have me a wife in Salem by the sea
And tonight she a widow will be
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll ..........
 
And up spoke the cookie of our galant ship
And a red hot cookie was he
Saying I care much for my pots and my pans
Than I do for the bottom of the sea
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll ..........
 
Then tree time around went our galant ship
And tree times around went she
Tree time around went our galant ship
And she sank to the bottom of the sea
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll ..........
 
Then up spoke the cabinboy, of our galant ship
And a nasty little lad was he
I´m not quite sure I can spell "Mermaid"
But I´m going to the bottom of the sea
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll ..........
 
O the ocean´s waves may roll ..........
