Mermaid Queen

Momma, momma,

 

          come back to me.

 

          Daddy tells me

 

          that you are a

 

          mermaid queen,

 

          living beneath the

 

          blue, blue, waves.

 

          Daddy says

 

          in the ocean you’ll

 

          live through all eternity.

 

          But momma, can’t return

 

          ever for an afternoon

 

          to be by my side?

 

          Momma, hold me in

 

          the breakers tenderly,

 

          rock me as the water

 

          rushes over my head.

 

          Momma, momma,

 

          come back to me

 

          or carry me back

 

          to the deep kingdom

 

          you preside over,

 

          with sitting beside

 

          your golden throne.

 

          Momma, momma

 

          come back from the sea.

 

          Daddy says

         

          you’re a mermaid queen,

         

          but you’re my momma too,

 

          come be with me.
