you were shipwrecked, my darling, but you couldn't tell
if the specky-spot out on the briney, blue swell
was a rescue boat coming to take you away
or a mermaid to drown you down under the waves

i swam a bit closer and what did you see
not a coast guard ship sailing the sparkling seas
but a lady afloat and aglimmer with scales
with a gleam in her eye and a shimmering tail

well it's true that the oceans where i lay my head
with a shell for my pillow and kelp for my bed
and i've sent a few sailors to watery graves
when they've followed me into the waves
but there's no need for fear, for i'll do you no harm
just roll up your cuffs dear, wade into my arms
though i sing on the swells as i comb out my hair
i'm the answer to your seaman's prayer

you tossed a glass bottle out into the foam
the message becked someone to carry you home
i would carry you there, you're the one i would keep
come down with me into the undersea deep
there are wonders and whales in the waters below
we can waltz by the light of electric eel glow
on a dance floor of seaweed and mother of pearl
come with me and i'll be your sweet lorelai girl

well it's true that the oceans where i lay my head
with a shell for my pillow and kelp for my bed
and i've sent a few sailors to watery graves
when they've followed me into the waves
but there's no need for fear, for i'll do you no harm
just roll up your cuffs dear, wade into my arms
though i sing on the swells as i comb out my hair
i'm the answer to your seaman's prayer

oh my kisses are salty but sweetheart i swear
i'm the answer to your seaman's prayer
