C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                 F
But I've sold my voice
      C
For a couple of feet
     G
That always bleed
          F              C
When I go walking in the road

C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                 F
But I've sold my voice
      C
For a couple of feet
         G
And they always bleed
   F
No matter how I clean

    G                    
And I once saw a most beautiful man 
       F            C
at the local record store
   G                 
He bumped into me and said, 
Well excuse me, young ma'am, but 
          F                          C
haven't I seen those pretty eyes somewhere before?
Am                           G
I smiled, but gestured at my throat
   F               C   C/B
To show that I was mute
Am                           G
Well, he quickly stared down at the floor
    F
And shuffled in his boots
F
Aw, he was out of there so fast

C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                 F
But I've sold my voice
      C
For a midnight train
      G
And a bump of cocaine
       F                    C
And an old photo of Ballets Russes

C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                   F
But I have sold my voice
      C
For a bottle of gin
         G
'Cause I can't swim
      F
And I sure don't want to float

    G
Oh, I was so lonely walking out of that store
    F                         C
And back into the busy people street
     G
When I overhead, I heard an argument
                      F                               C
A woman opened up her window, threw a flower pot from it
      Am       G
I was startled by the crash
         F                       C     C/B
But went over to find the little plant
Am                          G                    F
I quickly emptied it out my coffee paper cup and
Adopted it
F
Transplanted it
F
Took it home and
F
Named it Mozart

C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                 F
But I've sold my voice
          C
And I got rid of my tail
G
At a junkyard sale
F               C
Along with some favorite childhood toys

C      G  C
I am a mermaid
                   F
But I have sold my voice
      C
For a couple of feet
         G
And they always bleed
   F            C
No matter how I clean
      C
For a couple of feet
         G
And they always bleed
   F            C
No matter how I clean
      C
For a couple of feet
     G
That tend to bleed
          F
When I go wa-wa-walking
          C C F C...
