The song "Mermaid" by the band Train. Partial lyrics are below:

"Can't swim so I took a boat,
To an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
Stayed there till the air was clear
I was bored and out of tears,
Then I saw you washed up on the shore
I offered you my coat, thank goddess love can float

Crazy how that shipwreck met my ship was comin' in
We talked till the sun went down
Love on the Puget Sound
My treasure map was on your skin

Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Ocean's daughter,
I thought love was out of reach 'til I got her,
 had I known it could come true I would have wished in '92, for a mermaid just like you
Whoa, just like you, whoa

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"
