Liana glides through air and sea,
She brings back colourful shells for me,
With her webbed hands she captures prey
And her hair is green as seaweed,
With a purple bra on skin so pale,
Ruby red lips and a matching scaly tail,
Liana is a princess,
She wears golden chains to parties,
In the palace she wears silver,
Her resting place is beneath the sea, curled up on a seaweed throne,
Pearls and diamonds surround her wrist,
And a matching necklace to go with it,
Liana is my mermaid friend.
