"Mermaid" as written by Pat Monahan, Espen Lind, Amund Bjorklund, Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen....
Whoa, whoa
Can't swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
Stayed there 'till the air was clear
I was bored and out of tears, then I saw you washed up on the shore
I offered you my coat, thank godess love can float
Crazy how that shipwreck met my ship was comin' in
We talked 'till the sun went down
Love on the Pugit Sound
My treasure map was on your skin

Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
'Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would have wished in ninety two, for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa

Sharks, green with envy they wonder what you see in me
Funny thoughts sometimes can't help but wonder that as well
Now life is a holiday, making up for the years I paid
The way to this heavenly bay, it went through hell

Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would have wished in ninety two, for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa

Rescued you by the Banu tree, all the girl fish in the sea
Puttin' a candle to you, they don't have a handle on you, they don't have a scandal on you
Holler back will save you
Saving me was B-I-G, all the boy fish in the sea
They all wish that they could be me

Can't swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before

Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter, I thought love was out of reach
'Till I got her, had I known it could come true
I would have wished in ninety two, for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa

Whoa, just like you, whoa(Rescued you by the Banu tree, all the girl fish in the sea)
Just like you, whoa

    General CommentI can't believe there are no comments on this song. Well, rather than just literally interpret it, I like to think he's talking about the girl as a "mermaid" as in she's completely different than the rest, magical and enchanting.

    General CommentI think these lyrics are a play on the saying "There are plenty of fish in the sea." The speaker was exhausted from bad luck in relationships when he suddenly met a "mermaid," an exceptional girl who was more perfect for him than he imagined anyone could be. It's a cute song about finding love after heartbreak
