Album: I'm So Good That I Don't Have to BragReleased: 1965
This song is about a fisherman who falls in love with a mermaid. He likes everything about her, but there's one problem - her bottom half is a fish. By the end of the song, the problem is solved when he comes across another mermaid, but this one is a fish from the waist up and the bottom half is a girl.
This is a concert favorite for the Canadian band Great Big Sea. They recorded it for their 2005 album The Hard and the Easy.
