The Mermaid Song by GENZOMAN The Mermaid Song by GENZOMAN
Twas Friday morn when we set sail
And we were not far from the land
When the captain, he spied a lovely mermaid
With a comb and a glass in her hand

O the ocean's waves will roll
And the stormy winds will blow
While we poor sailors go skipping to the top
And the landlubbers lie down below (below, below)
And the landlubbers lie down below

And up spoke the captain of our gallant ship
And a well-spoken man was he
I have me a wife in Salem by the sea
And tonight she a widow will be

And up spoke the cookie of our gallant ship
And a red hot cookie was he
Saying I care much more for my pots and my pans
Than I do for the bottom of the sea

Then up spoke the cabinboy, of our gallant ship
And a nasty little lad was he.
I'm not quite sure I can spell "mermaid"
But I'm going to the bottom of the sea.

Then three times around went our gallant ship
And three times around went she
Three times around went our gallant ship
And she sank to the bottom of the sea

Since when did mermaids even exist?

They're fantasy creatures, people are free to make them look the way they want :)

This painting reminds me of the Tim Buckley song: "Song to the Siren."  Although he wrote the lyrics, he sings poorly.  If you are interested in hearing the song, I suggest listening to Sheila Chandra sing it or else This Mortal Coil.  Just a thought, since you always list the songs you are listening to when you are painting or posting.
