The Mermaid
CHORUS
The ocean waves do roll, 
Stormy winds do blow
We poor sailors go skippin' at the top
While the landlubbers lie down
Below, below, below
And the landlubbers lie down below

It was Friday morn, when we set sail
And we were not far from the land
When our captain he spied a mermaid so fair
With a comb and a glass in her hand

Up spoke the captain of our gallant ship
A fine brave man was he
He said, "That fishy mermaid has warned me of our fate"
"We shall sleep at the bottom of the sea!"

Up spoke the first mate of our gallant ship
And a brave spoken man was he
He said, "I have a wife in Brooklyn by the sea
And tonight a widow she will be!"

Up spoke the cabin boy of our gallant ship
And a fine young lad was he
He said, "I have a sweetheart in Salem by the sea
And tonight a weepin' she will be!"

Up spoke the cook of our gallant ship
A crazy old butcher was he
He said, "I care more for my pots and my pans
Than I cares for the bottom of the sea!" CHORUS

Then up spoke the parrot of our gallant ship
A crazy old buzzard was he
He said, "I cares more for my crackers and my seeds
Than I cares for the bottom of the sea!"

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