COh the Mermaid of OntariCo CHad long green stringy hGair-io CAnd a seaweed gown to weFar-io GBut she had no one to maCrry-o

F G C

Later verses are the same as first verse. And the Mermaid of Ontario Loved a big mouth bass named Larry-o Who lived in lake St. Claire-io Underneath the St. Claire ferry-o

F G C

So the Mermaid of Ontario Sent a goldfish emissary-o To ask that bass named Larry-o If he would consent to marry-o

F G C

Oh no no no said Larry-o My life I would not share-io I'd rather play solitarie-io Or read a book from the fish library-o

F G C

Or sit around in my underwear-io

F G C

And before I'd marry you, I'd marry-o A guernsey cow from the dairy-o Or eat a poison berry-o And wind up as a fish with dysentery-io

F G C

F G C

For the Mermaid of Ontario, it was more than she could bear-io So she cried for a day and she swam away with a yuppy little guppy named Gary-o

F G C

Now their a happy pair-io Cuz he's a millionaire-io In his yacht neath Lake Ontario They cuddled in a cozy little chair-io

F G C

And listened to his underwater stereo

F G C

And that big mouth bass named Larry-o Did marry a cow from the dairy-o And she fed him a poison berry-o And he wound up in the fishes cemetary-o

F G C

And that's the whole scenario. Out
