lyrics

My fisherman, he lives on land.
Mermaid, I live in the sea.
He comes my way, most every day.
We sing and dance in the waves.
Indeed our days are long.

My fisherman likes the wind in his face.
His hands are strong and sure,
Pulling his oars, raising his sail,
Setting his course for me.
I call the fish into his nets.

My fisherman has a wife and two sons
Still too young to sail.
When the ocean is rich, the cupboard is full,
The table is set for his return.
Indeed the nights are long.

Salt on his hands, salt on his face,
The taste of the sea on his tongue,
Salt on his front, salt on his back,
And salt for sure in his blood,
He is surely a man of the sea.

My fisherman, he knows someday
He will lie down with me in the waves,
And journey with me to the bottom so deep
Where all is still and calm,
At the bottom of the sea.

And the beautiful faces of his beautiful wife
And two young handsome sons
Will look to the sea, waiting patiently
Until all the storms are done
To shed their salty tears.
