"The Ballad of Weeki Wachee Springs"
Long before Walt Disney World
And the theme parks down Orlando way,
Florida vacations would often include
A stop at Weeki Wachee Springs!
All because of bathing beauts
Who wore corny-looking mermaid's tails,
Performed underwater and
Took air from the hose!
The Spring of Live Mermaids!
No wonder people still visit the place!
The Orlando parks may now have the crowds
That Weeki Wachee would once attract a lot,
And in the years since, so it seems,
Weeki Wachee's gone to seed.
With deferred maintenance
Wholesale threatening its presence,
Some have been wondering if
Weeki Wachee can still hold on!
(jungle drum rhythyms)
Down Florida way---
Yes, Florida way--
Weeki Wachee way--
Weeki Wachee Springs way--
Remember the Mermaids?
Remember their magic?
Remember their presence?
But it's now all under threat--
Some think Weeki Wachee Springs
Is playing stalling games
Just to get attention and
Distract the powers-that-be--
