Could anyone provide me with the lyrics please.
Only ones I can remember are part of the chorus:-
    For mermaids never quarrel
    ------------------------
    ------------------------
    I just can't live on land.

For mermaids never quarrel,
They never make demands,
They understand that reason why
I just can't live on land...

Lovely song. I don't know all the words, but was written by Les Noden, who lives in Brixham, Devon. I could probably find his e-mail and pass on a request for the words, if that would help.

Please do, Marje. It sounds like a delightful song. I'd like to see the lyrics.

There's a song called "Back Among the Mermaids" on a CD titled "Bollards" by Les Noden and Nigel Sture. It's available from Crabshell Records (click).
I'm guessing that "Back Among the Mermaids" must be the requested song.

That'll be the one. "I'll be back among the mermaids tomorrow" is the killer line of the song. I'll see if I can contact Les for the words.

Quick bump of this thread to say that this is now in hand. Les has sent me a .img file of the words and music. I think the best thing is for me to type out the words to share here, but I am going to be away until the weekend. I will deal with it in a week or so.

As promised:

Back Amongst the Mermaids (Copyright Les Noden 1997)

There's no light in your window
As I draw up at the quay,
There's no light in your window,
So you've finally left me,
It's hard for a sailor
To change his way of life,
So I'll be back amongst the mermaids tomorrow.

Chorus:
For mermaids never quarrel,
They never make demands,
They understand the reasons why
I just can't live on land

I was a sailor when you met me,
Then you didn't seem to mind,
You'd never want for anything,
I was gentle, I was kind,
But the old salt sea keeps calling me,
And I must always go ...
So I'll be back amongst the mermaids tomorrow.

Chorus

I've spent some time down in the mine,
At the mill I've tried my hand,
I've made things good in steel and wood,
And farmed most kinds of land.
But this heart of mine lives on the brine,
And I must always go ...
So I'll be back amongst the mermaids tomorrow.

Chorus

So you've found yourself another man
Who spends more time at home,
I wonder if you think of me,
While I am on the foam?
When the sun sinks in the ocean
My thoughts will be with you,
So I'll be back amongst the mermaids tomorrow.

Chorus

Repeat V 1
