Mermaid Lyrics

by Train

Can't swim so I took a boat to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
I stayed there till the air was clear
I was bored and out of tears, then I saw you washed up on the shore
I offered you my coat, thank Godess love can float
Crazy how that shipwreck meant my ship was coming in
We talked till the sun went down
Love on the Puget Sound
My treasure map was on your skin
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would've wished in '92 for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa
Sharks green with envy, they wonder what you see in me
Funny, but sometimes can't help but wonder that as well
Now life is a holiday, makin' up for the years I paid
The way to this heavenly bay, it went through hell
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would've wished in '92 for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa
Rescued you by the banyan tree, all the girl fish in the sea
Couldn't hold a candle to you, they don't have a handle on you, they don't have a scandal on you, I love ECCO sandals on you
Savin' me was B-I-G, all the boy fish in the sea
They all wish that they could be me
Can't swim so I took a boat to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
Oh, beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would've wished in '92 for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa
Just like you
Just like you
