I went out fishin' on a sandy beach
Cast my line out as far as it would reach
Lookin' for somethin' for the fryin' pan
I kick back with a beer in my hand

I must've got a big one 'cause it's bendin' my pole
I'm havin' to fight just to keep control
It could be a whale God only knows
Whatever it is it's not wearin' any clothes

She's larger than life made from holy water
She's covered in green and got
Little scales upon her, she's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night

She's got a set of gills like no fish I've ever seen
Long blond hair and a tail in between
I'm in love with a creature from the sea
She brings out the crustacean in me

Her voice is a temptation it's a siren song
When we kiss there can be no wrong
I ask her to marry me and be my wife
Do the backstroke the rest of our lives

She's larger than life made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her, she's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night

She's larger than life made from holy water
She's covered in green and got
Little scales upon her, she's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night, mermaid in the night
Little mermaid in the night

I think I'll have the catch of the day
