Two sisters went to the river bend
Went too soon, they're liable to drown
Parked their cars at the edge of the town
Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down

One was the poet's love
One was the poet's wife
One had a fire in her breast
One was the poet's eyes

First they wash their feet
Then they wash their hands
One went right to sleep
The other with gills and fins

One sank down like a rock
As the other one floated away
Thinking about the ticking of clocks
And what will the neighbors say?
And a neighbor said

Two sisters went to the river bend
Went too soon, they're liable to drown
Parked their cars at the edge of the town
Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down

Two sisters went to the river bend
One to swim, the other to drown
Parked their cars at the edge of the town
Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down

To the river bend...

Two sisters went to the river bend
One to swim, the other to drown
Parked their cars at the edge of the town
Slipped off their gowns and went slithering down
