  • She was a catch
    We were a match
    I was the match that would fire up her snatch
    There was a catch
    I was no match
    I was fired from her crotch
    I sit around and watch
    The mermaids sun themselves out on the rocks
    They are beyond our touch
    I watch and watch
    Wave at me
    They wave at me
    They wave and slip
    Back into the sea

    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the water
    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the sea

    I believe in God
    I believe in mermaids too
    I believe in 72 virgins on a chain (why not, why not)
    I believe in the Rapture
    For I've seen your face
    On the floor of the ocean
    At the bottom of the rain
    I do driver alertness course
    I do husband alertness course
    I do mermaid alertness course
    Watch them out on the rocks
    Wave at me
    They wave at me
    They wave and slip
    Back into the sea

    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the water
    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the sea
    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the water
    And all the ones who come
    And all the ones who go
    Down to the sea Writer/s: Nicholas Edward Cave, Warren Ellis
