By the banks of old Poughkeepsie
My love swam with me
Nature's tender bones are breathing
Lungs, each breath's each breeze and

Have you felt it, have you?
I've felt it too and so have you

Summer days, she stays by her window
Her saggy flesh, it sweeps the floor
Down her steps and through her hallway
Comin' out her door and

Have you seen it, have you?
I've seen that too and so have you

Now man holds hands, head, neck shaped cobweb
White oil fills each pore
Again down your steps and through your hallways
Jumpin' out your door and

Have you done it, have you?
I've done that too and so have you

Well, love me tender
V-v-viva Las Vegas and hound dog, all shook up
Heartbreak hotel, Lawdy, miss clawdy
Blue moon, blue suede shoes and

Have you heard it, have you?
I've heard that too and I know for sure
That so have you
