Ruthie Stephens, demo recording
She sits on the rocks watching ships drifting by,
a mermaid who hasn't yet found the right guy,
the sailors adore her,
and that's why they call her
the siren of old Shanghai.

She listened for answers in the sea shells,
she searched for him, low and high,
she left home behind her,
and swam to China,
the siren of old Shanghai.

But once she met a mortal,
she knew in love they'd fall.
She held him close and pulled him under
but they weren't the same at all.

So she sits on her rock watching ships drifting by,
a mermaid who hasn't quite found the right guy,
the sailors adore her,
and that's why they call her
the siren of old Shanghai.
