Upon the waves of gleaming light
Mermaids play their harps to the heart’s delight.
Seaplants dance to the moonlight under the ripply waves.
Sharks sleep under the ocean caves.
Dolphins jump in and out of the water to have some
‘Cause their work’s done.
Colorful sea slugs add the final spice —
The ocean is pretty nice.
