Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Mermaids lyrics

She was a catch, we were a match
I was the match that would fire up her snatch
There was a catch, I was no match
I was fired from her crotch
Now I sit around and watch

The mermaids sun themselves out on the rocks
They are beyond our touch, I watch and watch
Wave at me, they wave at me
They wave and slip back into the sea

All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
And all the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea

I believe in God
I believe in mermaids too
I believe in seventy-two virgins on a chain
Why not, why not

I believe in the rapture
For I've seen your face
On the floor of the ocean
At the bottom of the rain

I do driver alertness course
I do husband alertness course
I do mermaid alertness course
Watch them out on the rocks

Wave at me
Wave at me
They wave and slip
Back into the sea

All the ones who come
All the ones who go
Down to the water
All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea

For all the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the water

All the ones who come
And all the ones who go
Down to the sea
