Verse:
The oth -er night I dreamed that I was
Down at the bot -tom of the sea.
I met a Mer -maid fair, Who had a cot -tage there,
Her name was Min -nie and she tum -bled for me.
She had the tail of a fish for a train,
But just the same, she could sure en -ter -tain.
 
Chorus:
Oh what a time I had with Min -nie the Mer -maid,
Down at the bot -tom of the sea;
I for -got my trou -bles, There a -mong the bub -bles,
Gee but she was aw -fly good to me.
And ev' -ry night when the star fish came out,
I'd hug and kiss her so.
Oh what a time I had with Min -nie the mer -maid,
Down in her sea -weed bun -ga -low.
