On this day
Of giving thanks
Be my girl
We sat on down
Upon the shore
She spoke alone

Be myself
Caught in the moor
Around the lake
And it flowed out, it flowed, it flowed

I went around and around and around

And my girl
Went for a swim
To cleanse herself
On Thanksgiving
She ebbed on in
She dove on down
She wrapped herself
On the weeds on the bottom
For to drown (x3)

She wrapped herself around and around and around

(And I just rode my boat ashore
And I took out my fishing hook and wrapped it with my oar
And I threw my hook into the lake
And it just floated down
And it embedded inside her neck
And I pulled her on to the shore
And I dragged her around forevermore)

With my hook inside her crook
I drug her round and round
With my hook inside her crook
Yes, I drug her round and round

Around and around
Around and around
Yeah, I drug her around

Now would she die
It caused me sad
But I give thanks
For what I have
I looked upon
At her skin
On this day
Of Thanksgiving

And to this day
Around my neck
I wear that fish and fishhook for
To protect, to protect, to protect
From going round and round (x4)
Drag me round and round
Going round and round and round

(and around and around)
