1986 A Merman I Should Turn To Be

Intro: Am D Am D Am D Am D C 

D                                 Db 
Hurray, I awake from yesterday   Alive, but the war is here to stay 
So my love, Catherina and me, 
decide to take our last walk through the noise to the sea 
Bb                             A 
Not to die but to reborn,  away from lands so battered and torn 
  Am        D      Am D C 
Forever, forever 
Oh say, can you see it's really such a mess  
  Every inch of Earth is a fighting nest 
Giant pencil and lipstick tube shaped things, 
Continue to rain and cause screaming pain 
And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red as our  
 A                                              Am    D       Am    D 
feet find the sand,  and the sea is straight ahead, straight up ahead 
      Dm                      Am           C       
Well it's too bad that our friends, can't be with us today 
Well it's too bad 
   Dm               Am 
The machine, that we built, 
   C                   Gm 
would never save us', that's what they say 

That's why they ain't coming with us today 
                          Dm                     Am 
And they also said it's impossible for a man to live and breathe under 
water,      forever, was their main complaint 
And they also threw this in my face, they said: 
  Dm                             Am 
Anyway, you know good and well it would be beyond the will of God, 
  C                                 Gm 
and the grace of the King grace of the King  Yeah, yeah 

Dm Am C Gm  Dm Am C Gm   

So my darling and I make love in the sand, 
to salute the last moment ever on dry land 
Our machine, it has done its work, played its part well 
Without a scratch on our bodies and we bid it farewell 
Starfish and giant foams greet us with a smile 
Before our heads go under we take a last look at the killing noise 
  Am                    D            Am         Am D... 
Of the out of style, the out of style, out of style 
   Db                                    Cm 
So down and down and down and down and down and down  we go 
   B                                Bb 
hurry my darling we mustn't be late for the show 
   A                                  Ab 
Neptune champion games  to an aqua world that's so very dear 
  Gb                                    A      C   G       A 
right this way smiles a mermaid I can hear atlantis full of cheer 
 Am D    Am                 D     Am                       D  Am-D    
          atlantis full of cheer i can hear atlantis full of cheer
