The Lyrics

When a man loves a mermaid...
I love you though you've go-ot fins
I love you, don't care if you're fishy
Legs just leave me bored, so your tail I adore, you see
I love you-ou though you've got fins
On you-our ears, elbows a-and hips
My friends give me hell, just cause you can't run extremely-y well
But if they'd take an ocean dip they'd be in your sea-di-irt trail
I love you though you've got fi-ins

I know that I-I can't swim for crap, but I
Will learn so tha-at I can be near
Can't hold your hand cause of the-e webbing, I don't mind
Cause they're not translucent, they're clear
When we touch hands like in Disney's Tarza-an film
Through that transparency I see with such clarity
That incredible view, made me fall for you-ou
Lit'rally fell into the drink
And I saw you-ou and all your fins

You see, ever since you saved me that one ni-ight
When I slipped and fell off that pier
And when I saw your pure-black eyes, I felt no fright
Could say the drowning absorbed my fear
I-I say no, I was enraptured in your gills
And your skin salamander-y, hold up, it's not bestiality
That involves a lack of sentience, it's true
And you bizarrely spoke good English
I swear to you, I'll learn to swim
Cause I love you though you've got fins

Are there any "human falls in love with a mermaid" stories that don't involve the mermaid saving the human from drowning as their first meeting? And how the hell did Firefox not put the squiggly red line of you-can't-spell under "salamander-y"?
