Disney has reshaped an old mythological character by making mermaids beautiful when in fact they were not intended to portray beauty. Mermaids were meant to fool sailors and other mortals into thinking these sea nymphs were beautiful until you got too close and by then it was too late. But sometimes we are attracted to things that are not necessarily good for us...
He Fell in Love with a Mermaid
Did you hear about Davy?
He fell in love with a mermaid
Of all things,
Just a young man a dreamer
She had no trouble talking him in
Jesus Christ I say
As I take a swig of beer.
Always seemed so level headed
Had both feet on the ground
But love can turn even the wisest
Into a blithering fool
Sitting over there on a stool
Unable to speak proper sentences
Only able to sit there and drool.
So come on fellas, One round for poor old Davy
Who never got the warning ,
now we're sitting here mourning,
The likes of our long lost friend.
Love trumps everything
Even our God given Common sense
We give all without a single thought
Wake the next morning
In a strange bed
With a strange woman
And wonder how this all came to be.
Reason is the casualty
When we defer to the small head
To do our thinking for us.
I hope when my time comes
Love will not be so cruel
But so will she is all knowing
Knowing All of my all weaknesses
Knowing my mortal sin,
Knowing where I hid the bodies
Knowing where I like to hide
Knowing all my secrets
I stand naked before you,
Don't reveal the pillow talk
Said in confidence
On your soft down bed
In the morning dress quickly
Leave you sleeping like an angel
As I quietly close your door.
Men deserve this treatment
Men are unrepentant scoundrels
Tell you lies just to gain their entrances
But when the morning comes
Their true colors bleed through
Little wonder there are mermaids
Motivated by revenge
To even up the score,
Take you to the deep end of the pool
Just before they drown you
Promise you the treasure you desire
God, that's what they done to that Kid.
