(Pete Q. Harris/Billie Myers)

Verse 1

Without a moments hesitation
They threw caution to the wind.

He was no Prince Charming, no beauty.
She held flowers at her fingertips,
And honey fell from her lips,
He dived, into the oceans wild
As she swam in the morning mist…

He said, if it’s mine it will be, always yours.
Cast away any doubt and open up those doors…

Chorus

Shark and the Mermaid
Falling in love again
It was the shark and the mermaid

It was the shark and the mermaid

He thought one day she might go away,
But her love overshadowed his fears.

Chorus

It’s the Shark and the Mermaid
Falling in love again
It was the shark and the mermaid

Middle 8

Nobody thought that the love would last
Everybody looked and everybody laughed

Nothing stopped them no one got in their way

Chorus

It’s the Shark and the Mermaid
Falling in love again
It was the shark and the mermaid
Marking love again
It was the shark and the mermaid
Falling in love again
