Once there was a mermaid swimming gracefully
When a spaceship started sinking to the bottom of the sea
It landed in her garden and she kind of felt annoyed
But the spaceman was just a boy
She hid behind some coral to watch him for a bit
He looked a little lost, then he found a place to sit
She swam and sat beside him and she thought she saw him smile
When she said maybe he could visit for a while
She said

Maybe an astronaut and a mermaid could be good friends
Even though we're not the same
We could save each other from the monsters
And play each other's games
If we learned each other's names

He said the ocean's not so different from outer space
I'm feel kind of weightless in this underwater place
And your hair looks cool and crazy, and there are fish that look like stars
Tomorrow maybe we could go to Mars
I'll bet you'd like to swim around in zero gravity
And the martians won't be scary as long as you're with me
And we could chase the comets, I think it sounds like fun
And you could still be home for dinner when we're done
He said


The universe is wide
And it holds so much love inside
If you open up your eyes and see
These stars were made for you
Just as much as me
