Thread Name: Songs with Mermaids in
Subject: RE: Songs with Mermaids in
My song "The Fisherman" is about a mermaid who falls in love with a fisherman because of his singing. It's the other way around from most mermaid songs because he is, of course, a Welshman and therefore can sing most beautifully. The song is based on a traditional story so it's bound to be absolutely true.
