Mermaid in The Night - Jimmy Buffett

Mermaid in the Night
--------------------
by Jay Oliver and Roger Guth

I went out fishing on a sandy beach
Cast my line out as far as it would reach
Looking for something from the frying pan
I kick back with a beer in my hand

I must've get a big one cause it's bending my pole
I'm having to fight just to keep my hold
It could be a whale (oh) God only knows
Whatever it is it's not wearing any clothes

Chrous:
She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She'a a mermaid in the night

She's got a set of gills like no fish I've ever seen
Long blond hair and a tail in between
I'm in love with a creature from the sea
And she's bringing out the crustacean in me

Her voice is a temptation it's a siren song
When we kiss there can be no wrong
I ask her to marry me an be my wife
And we could do the backstroke the rest of our lives

Chrous:
She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She'a a mermaid in the night
