  Tiger Lillies - Drowning Girl (Bertolt Brecht)

Em                               Am
Once she had drowned and started her slow descent
Am                                         Em
Down the streams to where the great rivers broaden
Em                     Am
Oh, the open sky chant most magnificent
Am                                Em
As if it was acting as her body's guardian

Am                         B
Wreck and duck weed slowly increased her weight
Am                 B
By clasping her in their slimy grip
Am                                  B
Through her limbs, the cold blooded fishes played
Am                                       B
Creatures and plant life kept on, thus obstructing her last trip

Em                                 Am
And the sky that same evening grew dark as smoke
Am                                                        Em
And its stars through the night kept the brightness still soaring
Em                             Am
But it quickly grew clear when dawn now broke
Am                              Em
To see that she had one further morning

Am                               B
Once her pallid trunk had rotted beyond repair
Am                                B
It happened quite slowly that she slipped from God's thoughts
Am                                                B
First with her face, then her hands, right at the last with her hair
Am                          B                    Em
Leaving those corpse-choked rivers just one more corpse
