MINNIE THE MERMAID
Music and Lyrics by: Bud De Sylva (1923)

The other night I dreamed that I was
down at the bottom of the sea,
I met a Mermaid fair, who had a cottage there.
Her name was Minnie and she tumbled for me,
She had the tail of a fish for a train,
But just the same, she could sure entertain.

Chorus:
Oh what a time I had with Minnie the Mermaid,
Down at the bottom of the sea,
I forgot my troubles, There amongst the bubbles,
Gee, but she was aw'fully good to me.
And every night when the star fish came out,
I'd hug and kiss her so, oh,
Oh, what a time I had with Minnie the mermaid,
Down in her seaweed bungalow.

I can't forget those happy days, way
down at the bottom of the sea,
I'm really strong for her, and now I long for her.
And I'm inclined to think she's longing for me,
So every night I'm in bed before nine,
Hoping I'll dream of that mermaid of mine.
