Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Mermaids (Live at The Fonda Theatre 2013)


MERMAIDS

She was a catch
We were a match
I was the match
That would fire up her snatch
But there was a catch
I was no match
I was fired from her crotch
Now I sit around and watch
The mermaids sun themselves
Out on the rocks
They are beyond our touch
I watch and watch
Them wave at me
They wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea
I believe in God
I believe in mermaids too
I believe in seventy two virgins
On a chain why not why not
I believe in the rapture
For I’ve seen your face
On the floor of the ocean
At the bottom of the rain
I do driver alertness course
I do husband alertness course
I do mermaid alertness course
I watch them out on the rocks
They wave at me
They wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And the ones who go
Down to the sea
