Reverend And The Makers – Mermaids lyrics

There's no escaping from
The man it seems that I've become
Despite the fact that we are one
I turn my back and I try and run away

Don't make me put 'em on
The trousers you bought yesterday
Probably won't fit me anyway
If I close my eyes and I hope that I might change

The scourge of the sailors
You better stay away
I'll be the butt of the playground jokes today
But I'll be a mermaid and I will have my way
When I slip back to the sea again

There's nowhere I can run
To beat the taunts that you find fun
And to be the daughter and not the son
I wonder if that's what you really crave

There's no escaping from
The man it seems that I've become
Despite the fact that we are one
I close my eyes and I hope that I might change

The scourge of the sailors
You better stay away
I'm the butt of the playground jokes today
But I'll be a mermaid and I will have my way
When I slip back to the sea again

The scourge of the sailors
You better stay away
I'll be the butt of the playground jokes today
But I will be a mermaid and I will have my way
When I slip back to the sea again
