"Once upon a time I was a mermaid you'll hear,
I lived in reigns under the water, the eye can not see.
I filled my soul with the colors of corals,
I mealted myself in salty seas.
I dressed not, swiming naked I felt free.
My long hairs braided with sea weed.
I swam the deapest waters, I saw treasures you wouldn't belive.
I reached in the heart of the ocean the key to my own fears.
I surfed the waves with dolphins dancing around me.
Living amongst the sea creatures I found love, I found peace.
All this and more I did as a mermaid when I lived in the sea,
All this and more I still today miss"
