Ruben has a cute tattoo of a mermaid on his back
"Madness lies just under the skin" - the mermaid told him that,
'Cause she started whispering from the moment she was born

He walks the beach all night long 'cause she loves to hear the ocean's song
Ruben loves to paint and draw, copies the labels from his old 45s,
Or go get juiced in some tittybar, he likes to do that too sometimes,
But she just goes crazy if he even looks twice at some girl

There's a speck of light way out at sea,
She says "Take me there, it'll be just you and me"
The moon bobs on the water like a lilo, as Ruben paddles out to sea

When they find him next day, floating in the shallows,
His tattoo's gone and the mermaid is free
