Intro:
    Ab  Bb  Cm  Eb  -x2-
    Ab Bb Cm Eb Fm Bb
    Cm

Verse:
Ab                Bb           Cm              Eb
Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Ab           Bb              Cm          Eb
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
Ab                       Bb                Cm                   Eb
I stayed there till the air was clear I was bored and out of tears
Fm                             Bb
Then I saw you washed up on the shore

Verse:
Ab          Bb             Cm           Eb
I offered you my coat, thank god this luck can flow
Ab               Bb                Cm            Eb
Crazy how that shipwreck met my ship was coming in
Ab                 Bb               Cm           Eb
We talked till the sun went down, love on the fugit sound
Fm                      Gm
My treasure map was on your skin

Chorus:
Cm            Eb      Bb           Ab
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Cm       Eb       Bb          Gm
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Cm     Eb                Bb                  Fm
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      Bb                    Ab    Bb   Cm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa

Verse -same as before-:
Sharks green with envy, they wonder what you see in me
Funny but sometimes can’t help but wonder that as well
Now life is a holiday, making up for the years I paid
The way to this heavenly bay it went through hell

Chorus:
Cm            Eb      Bb           Ab
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Cm       Eb       Bb          Gm
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Cm     Eb                Bb                  Fm
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      Bb                    Ab    Bb   Cm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa

Verse -same as before-:
Rescued you by the banyan tree, All the girlfish in the sea
Couldn't hold a candle to you, They don’t have a handle on you,
They don’t have a scandal on you, I love Ecco Sandals on you
Saving me was B-I-G, All the boyfish in the sea
They all wish that they could be me

Bridge:
Ab                Bb           Cm              Eb
Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Ab           Bb              Cm          Eb
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before

Chorus:
Cm            Eb      Bb           Ab
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Cm       Eb       Bb          Gm
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Cm     Eb                Bb                  Fm
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      Bb                    Ab    Bb   Cm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa.
