The Nereids!

A blog visitor reminded me about posting photos from the Nereids impromptu dance after the Pensacola Beach Mardi Gras Parade. Come on up, girls, and dance to your theme song, Mermaid in the Night! [Click on the song's link in a different window to listen and imagine how much fun the ladies were having with their dance and on the photos to appreciate their enthusiasm.]


"I went out fishin' on a sandy beach
Cast my line out as far as it would reach
Lookin' for somethin' for the fryin' pan
I kick back with a beer in my hand...

"I must've got a big one 'cause it's bendin' my pole
I'm havin' to fight just to keep control
It could be a whale, God only knows
Whatever it is it's not wearin' any clothes...


"She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green and got
Little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She'a a mermaid in the night!


"She's got a set of gills like no fish I've ever seen
Long blond hair and a tail in between
I'm in love with a creature from the sea
She brings out the crustacean in me.


"Her voice is a temptation it's a siren song
When we kiss there can be no wrong
I ask her to marry me and be my wife
Do the backstroke the rest of our lives.


"She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night.


"She's larger than life
Made from holy water
She's covered in green
She's got little scales upon her
She's larger than life
She's a mermaid in the night...

"I think I'll have the catch of the day"

~~Jimmy Buffett, "Mermaid in the Night"
