There once was a girl
Beautiful as a pearl,
Who is now known as Baby Belle Blue.
She is long dead and gone
But her legend lives on
In the waters of Lake Yester Yew.
There her ghost can be seen
With her hair oh-so-green
And a malicious glint in her eyes,
Which are black as the hell
Of the depths that she dwells
But arises from with the dark sky.
And she calls out her song
In the trees all night long
And there's nothing that no one can do.
For once she's in your head,
She will take you for dead
At the Bottom of Lake Yester Yew.
"Just a tall tale," they say
In the light of the day
But they all swim to shore before night.
Yes, they know what to do
About Baby Belle Blue,
For they know this tall-tale teller's right.
