--
I am a mermaid
But I've sold my voice
For a pair of feet
That tend to bleed
When I go walking in the road

I am a mermaid
But I've sold my voice
For a couple of feet
And they always bleed
When I go walking in these streets

And I once saw a most beautiful man at the local record store
He bumped into me and said, well excuse me, young ma'am, but haven't I seen your pretty eyes somewhere before?
I smiled, but gestured at my throat
To show that I was mute
Well, he quickly looked down at the floor
And shuffled in his boots
Aw, he was out of there so fast

I am a mermaid
But I've sold my voice
For a midnight train
And a bump of cocaine
And an old photo of Ballets Russes

I am a mermaid
But I have sold my voice
For a bottle of gin
'Cause I can't swim
And I sure don't want to float

Oh, I was so lonely walking out of that store
And back into the busy people street
When I overhead, I heard an argument
A woman opened up her window, threw a flower pot from it
I was startled by the crash
But went over to find the little plant
I quickly emptied it out my paper coffee cup and
Adopted it
Transplanted it
Took it home and
Named it Mozart

I am a mermaid
But I've sold my voice
And I got rid of my tail
At a junkyard sale
Along with some favorite childhood toys

I am a mermaid
But I have sold my voice
For a couple of feet
That tend to bleed
When I go walking in the street

I am a mermaid
But I have sold my voice
For a couple of feet
That tend to bleed
When I go walking in the street

I am a mermaid
But I have sold my voice
For a couple of feet
And they always bleed
No matter how I clean
For a couple of feet
And they always bleed
No matter how I clean
For a couple of feet
That tend to bleed
When I go wa-wa-walking
In the
Street
