Georgie was a skinny kid
Fond of angling, fonder of dangling his feet in the cool
Brook water
While the reverends daughter
Sat at his side and fluttered his face with the fuzz of a
Dandelion.

Long about noontime
Floating cross the field, georgie heard the peel of a bell
Being rung by the parson
Time for his lesson
As much as he hated it, the preacher was teachin him to
Play the accordion.

Dont go georgie! said the reverends daughter
When daddy comes lookin we can duck in the water.
They both went out and dipped down to hide
But the girl caught her locket on an underwater branch
And the next thing she knew... she died

Preacher was a sorry mess
He was cryin, shoutin bout her dyin and livin the
Eternal life
Should a seen his wife
Sobbin on the ground as the wind rustled round
And tickled the keys
Made georgies accordion give an awful dyin wheeze
