Waterboys – Song Of The Mermaid lyrics

On a day of days
I stood and gazed
Over the western sea
I was completely dazed,
Wide-mouthed and amazed
when a mermaid called to me

Ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy
ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy

Like a man in a dream,
for an age it seemed
I stood as still as a stone
while the mermaid sang
And her melody rang
like a memory calling me home

Ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy
ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy

Then the sea and the wind
and the shores did spin
And though my resistance was strong
all the stars in space
Filled the mermaid's face
as she captured my will with her song

Ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy
ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy

Somehow I spoke --
the enchantment broke
I rubbed my eyes open wide
like a dream she was gone
All that remained was a song
borne on the ebbing tide

Ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy
ooh-Ooooh Ooooooooooh, my sunny sailor boy
