Mermaid in the Night
By: Roger Guth, Jay Oliver
1989
I went out fishin' on a sandy beach
Cast my line out as far as it would reach
Lookin' for somethin' for the fryin' pan
I kick back with a beer in my hand

I must've got a big one 'cause it's bendin' my pole
I'm havin' to fight just to keep control
It could be a whale God only knows
Whatever it is it's not wearin' any clothes

Chorus:
She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green and got
Little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She'a a mermaid in the night

She's got a set of gills like no fish I've ever seen
Long blond hair and a tail in between
I'm in love with a creature from the sea
She brings out the crustacean in me

Her voice is a temptation it's a siren song
When we kiss there can be no wrong
I ask her to marry me and be my wife
Do the backstroke the rest of our lives

Chorus:
She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night

She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green and got
Little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night
Mermaid in the night
Little mermaid in the night

-- Spoken:
"I think I'll have the catch of the day"
