The mermaid

'Twas on a Friday that we set sail
And we were not far from the land
When our captain he spied a merrymaid so fair
With a glass and comb in her hand

(chorus)
And the ocean waves did roll
And the stormy winds did blow
And we poor sailors were skipping at the top
And the landlubbers lying down below, below, below
And the landlubbers lying down below

Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship
And a fine old man was he
"This fishy mermaid has warned me of our doom
We shall sink to the bottom of the sea."

And the ocean...

Then up spoke the mate of our gallant ship
And a fine spoken man was he
Sayin, "I have a wife in Brooklyn by the sea
And tonight a widow she will be."

And the ocean...

Then up spoke the cabin-boy of our gallant ship
And a brave young lad was he
"Oh, I have a sweetheart in Salem by the sea
And tonight she'll be weeping for me."

And the ocean...

Then up spoke the cook of our gallant ship
And a crazy old butcher was he
"I care much more for my pots and my pans
Than I do for the bottom of the sea."

And the ocean...

Then three times 'round spun our gallant ship
And three times 'round spun she
Three times 'round spun our gallant ship
And she sank to the bottom of the sea

And the ocean...
