Lord of the Reedy River
She fell in love with a swan
Her eyes were filled with feathers
He filled her with song
In the reedy river
In the reedy river

She in her boat long hours
He in his royal plumage
She threw him some flowers
In the reedy river
In the reedy river

Black was the night
And starry
She loosened off her garments
And let fall her hair
In the reedy river
In the reedy river

Sadly they mourn inside
Lost in evening twilight
Two swans glide
And fly...
O'er the reedy river
O'er the reedy river

She fell in love with a swan...
