The thing that's missing is the smell of seaweed. Just pop over to the Asian market, buy a package of sushi wrappers, and arrange a few on your amp or music stand while you're playing. It won't make the songs about mermaids, but it will make them smell like they're about mermaids.

Oh, a cowboy needs a horse, needs a horse, needs a horse,
And a cowboy needs a hat, needs a hat, needs a hat,
And he oughta have a rope, have a rope, have a rope,
If he wants to keep a-ridin'.

Now a cowboy needs some boots (fancy boots, fancy boots),
And a set of shiny spurs (shiny spurs, shiny spurs),
And he oughta have a song (have a song, have a song),
If he wants to keep a-ridin'.

Oh, the fence is long and the sun is hot,
And the good Lord knows that a cowboy's got
To keep (ridin', ridin' along).

Now if a cowboy's got a horse, and a hat, and a rope,
And a pair of fancy boots, shiny spurs, and a song,
Then there's very little else in this world that he needs
If he wants to keep a-ridin',
Ridin' along.

[Yodel.]

See that list.. not a single mention of mermaids...

We can be fairly certain a cowboy does not need a mermaid...

No mermaids in this one either. That was just an an arbitrary decision on my part, and the lack of a mermaid dimension to the lyrics makes it stand out in many ways

Fisherman’s Dance

This is the dance that the fishermen do
This is the dance that fisherman do
The shepherds and the farmers too
Before they go for a shit

This is the dance that the checkout girls do
This is the dance that the checkout girls do
The policemen and the taxi drivers too
Before they go for a shit

They sing and dance by the silvery moon
Stir their tea with a silver spoon
Have a crap and then real soon
They all go back to work

This is the dance that the firemen do
This is the dance that firemen do
The computers salesman and the stock clerks too
Before they scratch their bum

This is the dance that the doctors do
This is the dance that doctors do
The girl on the desk, and the kangaroo
Before they scratch their bum

They sing and dance by the silvery moon
Stir their tea with a silver spoon
Scratch their bums and then real soon
They all go back to work

This is the dance that the wordprocessers do
This is the dance that the typists do
Deep divers and bus drivers too
Before they wipe their nose

This is the dance that the soldiers do
And the keepers in the zoo
The dustbin men, and the nurses too
Before they wipe their nose

They sing and dance by the silvery moon
Stir their tea with a silver spoon
Clear their nostrils then real soon
They all go back to work

I used to do this 'Al Jolson with a stutter' tribute act.

The climax, I used to work up to was....

You Mermaid Me Love You...

followed by

THough April Showers Mermaid Come Your Way

Sometime I still do the John Martyn with a stutter classic...

Mermaid you never lay your head down, without a hand to hold..
