Sweet Deyanira sits on her bed
And dreams of lovers in love
Her silly conscience sits by her side
And whispers to her many lies

Like how can your boy sing softly to you
When he can't make a living for two?
Remember your morals, only don't quarrel
With family you know
For boys who don't know your dreams

Strange Deyanira, twenty one years
Still frowns at her second estate
Anxious and willing to live a loftier way
For now she'll dance and she'll sway

Through puddles of rain and pesticide grain
She'll put on a smile and say
"Dear children come forth and join me on earth
in a family you know, in a place you don't know by heart."

Through puddles of rain and pesticide grain
She'll put on a smile and say
"Dear children come forth and join me on earth
in a family you know, in a place you don't know by heart."
