THE MERMAID SONG words and music Traditional Twas Friday morn when we set sail And we were not far from the land When the captain, he spied a lovely mermaid With a comb and a glass in her hand O the ocean's waves will roll And the stormy winds will blow While we poor sailors go skipping to the top And the landlubbers lie down below (below, below) And the landlubbers lie down below Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship, And a brave old man was he, He said, "This fishy mermaid has warned me of our doom: We shall sink to the bottom of the sea!" chorus And up spoke the mate of our gallant ship And a well-spoken man was he I have me a wife in Salem by the sea And tonight she a widow will be And up spoke the cookie of our gallant ship And a red hot cookie was he Saying I care much more for my pots and my pans Than I do for the bottom of the sea Then up spoke the cabinboy, of our gallant ship And a nasty little lad was he. I'm not quite sure I can spell "mermaid" But I'm going to the bottom of the sea. Then up spoke the cannibal who snuck aboard our ship And a hungry mad invader was he You can drown right now beneath the cold ocean waves Or you can be dinner for three, your choice Then up spoke the parrot of our gallant ship And a smartarse parrot was she Brawk, you're going to drown, your going to drown, Brawk And flew to the shore for her safety Then three times around went our gallant ship And three times around went she Three times around went our gallant ship And she sank to the bottom of the sea
