I told my baby, "Don't you get lost"
She fell in the river and now she's gone
I miss her badly, I loved her so
I need some magic to bring her home

Now she's gone I miss her so
Can't see where that river goes

I saw the witch man, I cried and moaned
He said, "Boy, magic is what I know
Swallow this spider, eat this shell of black
Against the current, she'll float right back"

Now she's gone I miss her so
Can't see where that river goes

A year went by, I watched the banks
Then up the river one day she came
A giant eggshell, I looked inside
My baby lay there with a feathered hide

Now she's gone I miss her so
Can't see where that river goes
