And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
The mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
She rises with the high tide in the morning.

Well the captain he did say, it's time to haul anchors aweigh,
There's a mermaid to see before the sunrise;
She is graced with a fish's tail, and she fights a mighty gale,
So you better keep your eyes peeled for this maiden. (Go girl.)

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
A mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

So we sailed on through the night, not a friggin' thing in sight.
In the morning when the darkness slips away,
The captain hollers, all aside there, she rises on the tide,
Catching each and every stray before descendin'.

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
A mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

So we pull up to the spot where she dove below the lot,
Look down into the deep blue sea below;
And the beauty of her skin embraced the sun as it shone in,
We leaned over and jumped in after this maiden.

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
A mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

So we left her in the sea, forever more will she be free,
In the distance we could see her fade away;
With each stroke it became clear that she soon would disappear,
She arched her tail high in the air and she was gone.

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
A mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive,
A mistress of the high tide in the morning?
And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

And she dives, how in the hell does she survive?
Oh, she rises with the high tide in the morning.

Look [D] down into the [A] deep blue sea be- [E] low;
And the [A] beauty of her skin embraced the [D] sun as it [A] shone in,
We leaned [D] over and jumped [A] in after this [E] maid- [A] en.
