Without a moment's hesitation
They threw caution to the wind
He thought she must be blind not to see
He was no Prince Charming, no beauty
She held flowers at her fingertips
And honey fell from her lips
He dived into the oceans wild
As she swam in the morning mist
He said, "If it's mine it will be always yours."
Cast away any doubt, and open up those doors
It was the shark and the mermaid
As they grown in mind and body
And the days turned into years
He thought one day she might go away
But her love overshadowed his fears
Under the liquid sky where they lived
They were legends to behold
Fate distracted by their simple charm
Left them there to love alone
Now the angels wait patiently
For the shadows down below
They stop and smile because
It's the shark and the mermaid
Nobody thought that the love would last
Everybody looked, and everybody laughed
But the mermaid and the shark
They just slipped away
Nothing stopped them
No one got in their way
Standing together as lovers and friends
They stayed together
Their love knew no end
Proving everyone wrong
They grew together
There were strong
Everybody was wrong
About the shark and the mermaid
