I'd Rather Be A Mermaid

I’d rather be a mermaid and yes, I know why. 
I would get to be with my fin and see the waves go by…
I’d rather be a mermaid and dive into the sea, 
to see all the sea creatures, and feel the ocean breeze. 
I’d rather be a mermaid for everything's at peace, 
no worries in the world… it would just be me. 
I’d be with all of life’s beauty, and everything is as happy as could be...
