We went down to the edge of the water
You were afraid to go in
You said there might be sharks out there in the ocean
And I said I'm only going for a swim
I was swimming around in a circle
I wasn't always in view
You said we might get into red flag danger
And I am alone when I'm not with you

I am no mermaid, I am no mermaid
And I am no fisherman's slave
I am no mermaid, I am no mermaid
I keep my head above the waves

I was swinging from the center of the ceiling
You were afraid to give in
I said I know I'll always live for this feeling
And you closed your eyes and said never again
I was dancing in the middle of the desert
You said we'd burn under the hot sun
I said I'd rather be the color of pleasure
Than watch like you from under the thumb

I am no mermaid, I am no mermaid
And I am no fisherman's slave
I am no mermaid, I am no mermaid
I keep my head above the waves
