Mermaid

Yamashita Tatsuro

Long ago
But it seem like yesterday
It happen 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 smilling 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 sweet arms around me
Sweet arms around me
Ever so gently she put me down

Next thing I knew that soft ocean floor
And the first taste of love that I found
Oh

Let me stay
I'll live in your home in the ocean
I'll give you my love and devotion
But suddenly she told me

You must go back and find
A girl of your kind
So I left her behind
Now the ocean remind me of

Mermaid, mermaid
It's true love that we made
Part fish part girl
I still miss your world

Mermaid, mermaid
It's true love that we made
Part fish part girl
I still miss your world
