Sweet Elisabeth

The Bard of Bodesbeck

As the legends tell

He was a cavalier

Ne're-do-well


Poor Elisabeth

It drove her mad

When he denied her

What she once had


Round and round and upside down

Rollin' down into the water of dreams


Whispers in the village

Rumor on the wing

When heartbreak's the song

Everybody sings


On a perilous cliff

Over Pyramid Lake

I was close, so close

Just a splash too late


Round and round and upside down  

Rolling down into the water of dreams

Sweet Elisabeth is free

She is finally free


When I found her body

She was frozen so cold

I thought her eyelids

Would flutter open

Yet they remained closed

They remained closed


Now the stars retreat

The Eastern clouds grow pale

As the light wakens the sky

She glimmers o'er the vale


Round and round and upside down  

Rolling down into the water of dreams

Round and round and upside down  

Rolling down into the water of dreams

'Lisabeth 'n me

We are finally free
