Down in the Diving Bell

This song is by The Dinning Sisters and appears on the album Tex Ritter and the Dinning Sisters (1948) by Tex Ritter and The Dinning Sisters.

Once I was a sailor bold. Some tales to you I'll tell
Of all the wonders I have seen when in a diving bell
While on the ocean, messmates for money challeng'd me
I'd not the pluck to go and see the mermaids in the sea

Way down in a diving bell at the bottom of the sea
That's a pretty place the fishy sights to see
Way down in a diving bell at the bottom of the sea
Nice little mermaids, pretty little mermaids, all come courting me

There was one pretty mermaid, to love me she made bold
But she slipped away because you know a fish you can not hold
Her mother brought her back again and whisper'd in me ear
That if I like I might to her get married way down here

Well very soon we married where in a house that's built of shells
The clergyman wore a bathing suits and a codfish rang the bell
We found in great variety of fiddlers we had three
And we danced all night that very same night at the bottom of the deep blue sea

Way down in a diving bell at the bottom of the sea
That's a pretty place the fishy sights to see
Way down in a diving bell at the bottom of the sea
Nice little mermaids, pretty little mermaids, all come courting me
