LYRICS:

This is a story about a beautiful mermaid and her journey away from the sea...

I was swimmin' in the bay, my hair filled with flowers
When a shark came along, and chased me for hours
So I swam to beach, but got tangled in some kelp
So I started to sing to get some help
Then a record producer came along
And said, "Hey there, fishy, I like your song!"
And now:

I was a mermaid
And now I'm a pop star.
I was a mermaid,
And now I'm a pop star.
I was a mermaid,
And now I'm a pop star.
I was a mermaid,
And now I'm a pop star.

Now I'm livin' like a pimp straight outta jail.
I hire a hottie full time to splash water on my tail.
Always dancing at the clubs at Hollywood or Sunset-oh,
I can't wait to be out of this white trash ocean ghetto!

I was a mermaid.
And now I'm a pop star.
I was a mermaid.
And now I'm a pop star.

Please!
Come back to the sea!
(Come back to the sea!)
Every mermaid is essential to our precious underwater ecosystem.
(Ecosystem!)
Without you, we're all slowly dying!
(Dying, dying!)

Oh, Poseidon, I'm sure you'll be fine.
And if you're ever near Bel Air, be sure to drop me a line!

I was a mermaid
And now I'm a pop star.
I was a mermaid,
And now I'm a pop star

I was a mermaid
And now I'm a pop star
I was a mermaid
And now I'm a popstar.
