Song Description

A girl makes a wish and becomes a mermaid, but gets more than she bargained for.


Some people hold a seashell to their ear
and say they think they hear the ocean
Jenny held a seashell to her lips
and that's what set this tale in motion
She made a wish
to be a fish
half a fish and half a girl
She longed to be a mermaid
and swim around the world

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny
while you brave the ocean wild
Your parents walk along the shore
calling for
their baby child

In the North Atlantic Ocean
Jenny heard the singing of the whales
The water was so beautiful
but cold where she had skin instead of scales
She made a wish
to be a fish
half a fish and half a girl
Now she was a mermaid
swimming 'round the world

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny
YouA-re so far very away
You donA-t hear your parents crying
Do you
hear them pray?

Jenny'd been at sea for just a week
but now it felt like many years
She found the salty water in her eyes
was not the ocean but her tears
She'd made a wish
to be a fish
half a fish and half a girl
Now she was just alone
And half-way 'round the world

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny
Oh, what will you do?
Your parents have gone home now
with only
tears for you

A mighty storm swept her westward
tossing Jenny on a rocky shore
As she dragged across the sand
she saw a shell she knew she'd seen before
She'd made a wish
to be a fish
Now she wished her wish was gone
And soon she was a girl again
Back where she belonged

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny
You went half around the world
Just to find you love your home
And love
to be a girl
