Mermaid Avenue that's the street Where the sun and storm clouds meet; Where the ocean meets that rockwall Where the boardwalk meets the beach; Where the prettiest of the maidulas Leave their legprints in that sand Just beneath our lovesoaked boardwalk With the bravest of our lads. Mermaid Avenue that's the street Where all colors of goodfolks meet; Where the smokefish meets the pretzel Where the borscht sounds like the seas; This is where hot Mexican Chili Meets Chop Suey and meatballs sweet; Mermaid Avenue she's a nervous jerk But, still, she's hard to beat
