Lake Marie

We were standing

Standing by peaceful waters

Standing by peaceful waters

Whoa wah oh wha oh

Many years ago along the Illinois

Wisconsin border

There was this Indian tribe

They found two babies in the woods

White babies

One of them was named Elizabeth

She was the fairer of the two

While the smaller and more fragile one was

Named Marie

Having never seen white girls before

And living on the two lakes known as

The Twin Lakes

They named the larger and more

Beautiful lake Lake Elizabeth

And thus the smaller lake that was hidden

From the Highway

Became known forever as Lake Marie



We were standing

Standing by peaceful waters

Standing by peaceful waters

Whoa wah oh wha oh





Many years later I found myself talking

To this girl

Who was standing there with her back

Turned to Lake Marie

The wind was blowing especially through

Her hair

There was four Italian sausages cooking

On the outdoor grill

And they were sizzlin'

Many years later we found ourselves in Canada

Trying to save our marriage

And perhaps catch a few fish

Whatever came first

That night she fell asleep in my arms

Humming the tune to Louie Louie

Aah baby, we gotta go now





We were standing

Standing by peaceful waters

Standing by peaceful waters

Whoa wah oh wha oh





The dogs were barking as the cars were

Parking

The loan sharks were sharking

The narcs were narcing

Practically everyone was there

In the parking lot by the forest preserve

The police had found two bodies

Nay, naked bodies

Their faces had been horribly disfigured

By some sharp object

Saw it on the news

The TV news

In a black a
