D                   
When I was a lad in a fishing town
     G              D 
Me old man said to me:

"You can spend your life, your jolly life
       Bm           A
Just sailing on the sea.
D
You can search the world for pretty girls
           G               F#m
Til your eyes are weak and dim,
      G                       D
But don't go searching for a mermaid, son
       G           A       D
If you don't know how to swim"
  

Chorus
           G                D
'Cause her hair was green as seaweed
     G                 D
Her skin was blue and pale
     G                    D
Her face it was a work of art,
   G                     D
I loved that girl with all my heart
       G              D
But I only liked the upper part
   G       A         D
I did not like the tail

   D
I signed onto a sailing ship
    G                D    
My very first day at sea
    
I seen the Mermaid in the waves,
   Bm          A
Reaching out to me
       D                  
"Come live with me in the sea said she,
  G                F#m
Down on the ocean floor
          G                  D
And I'll show you a million wonderous things
        G     A     D
You've never seen before
    D
So over I jumped and she pulled me down,
G                   D                   
Down to her seaweed bed

On a pillow made of a tortoise-shell
      Bm               A         
She placed beneath my head
   D
She fed me shrimp and caviar
  G           F#m
Upon a silver dish
          G                        D
From her head to her waist it was just my taste
         G       A         D
But the rest of her was a fish

Chorus
           G                D
'Cause her hair was green as seaweed
     G                 D
Her skin was blue and pale
     G                    D
Her face it was a work of art,
   G                     D
I loved that girl with all my heart
       G              D
But I only liked the upper part
   G       A         D
I did not like the tail

D        
But then one day, she swam away
      G                          D
So I sang to the clams and the whales
   
"Oh, how I miss her seaweed hair
        Bm                  A
And the silver shine of her scales
     D
But then her sister, she swam by
  G               F#m
And set my heart awhirl
           G                D    
Cause her upper part was an ugly fish
        G        A         D
But her bottom part was a girl

Chorus
         G                D
Yes her hair was green as seaweed
     G                 D
Her skin was blue and pale
     G               D
Her legs they are a work of art,
   G                     D
I loved that girl with all my heart
       G                           D
And I don't give a damn about the upper part
       G            A      D
Cause that's how I get my tail.
