LUNCH WITH A MERMAID

“Come for lunch”, the rabbit said
She’s making seaweed sandwiches
The mermaid and her friend the shark
Don’t mind the wand she brandishes.

No biting, poking or teasing
No reason to be afraid
You’ll enjoy the treats and drinks she makes
Especially the lemonade.

She will delight you with her magic
She is fanciful and fun
You’ll be sad when it’s all over
When the day is past and done.

Can’t be too careful, watch your step
There are snakes and spiders in the yard
No reason for you to wander off
No reason to go too far.

Everything you could want or need
Will appear before your eyes
Hardly a reason to be upset
No reason that you should cry.

Music playing in the background
A harp, a flute, a drum
She will be so happy
So happy you have come.
