Thread Name: Songs with Mermaids in
Subject: RE: Songs with Mermaids in
"Isn't there also a song about not being able to diddle the mermaid because she was all fishy below the waist?"

"Oh, roll up, roll up, come and see the mermaid,
See the lovely lady, half a woman, half a fish."
In went the lads, to see it were no swank,
And little Tommy Higgins put some whisky in the tank.
Oh, she got frisky, swimming in the whisky,
And when she come up for air,
She bowed to the audience, gave her tail a swish,
Her tail it came off and she really looked delish,
She said "What do you fancy lads, a bit of meat, or fish?"
At the Rawtenstall Annual Fair.

Written by the prolific Music Hall team of Weston & Lee, who also gave us such timeless gems as "The Body In The Bag" and "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm".
