In the deepest depths of the ocean blue,
The mermaid’s fins sparkle every hue,
She dances through the midnight seas,
Her beauty apparent to those that see.
A sirens call, a danger to thee,
Though no man can let her be,
She sings to them, a lilting song,
Convincing them to her they belong.
Shining fins cut through the water,
Shining eyes dance with laughter,
Of flowing hair, and stunning grace,
The mermaid is a magical race.
Careful ye be of this beautiful maiden,
For she sings of desires to be sated,
For you she will sing a lullaby,
A beautiful song, your final goodbye.
