Mermaid Song

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and appears on the album Aspects Of Love (1989).

Jenny:
I am a mermaid
With golden hair...

ALEX:
I've never seen one like you!

Jenny:
Not all us mermaids
Have silver tails --
I have no tail at all!

ALEX:
Well, I've never,
Seen any mermaids
With knobbly knees!
I'd say this tale
Was a touch too tall,
Maybe a touch too tall...

Jenny:
Sailors would smash on
My jagged rock,
Lured by my siren's song...

ALEX:
It isn't the
Song of the siren
That tortures men --
That's where your theory
Goes sadly wrong,
That's where it all goes wrong...

Jenny:
I thought you'd know better,
You know nothing
About mermaids.

ALEX: (wry)
You know nothing
About sailors...

Jenny:
I do!
Much more than you!
If you were a sailor
And heard my song,
Would you be lured by me?

ALEX:
I wouldn't be
Foolish enough to
Go near your rock --
I'd steer my galleon out to sea...

BOTH:
...Lonely and lost at sea...
