Well, the clouds didn't look like cotton, they didn't even look like clouds
I was underneath the weather and all my friends looked a crowd
The swimmin' hole was full of rum, I tried to find out why
All I learned was this my friend you gotta swim before you fly

I got two girls one's in heaven, one's below
One I love with all my heart and one I do not know

Two lonesome dudes on an ugly horse passed by not long ago
They asked me where the action was and I said I did not know
As they disappeared into the brush I heard the driver say
He's a little slow between the ears, he's always been that way

I got two girls one's in heaven, one's below
One I love with all my heart and one I do not know

Now Jolly Jane just lays around and listens with her mouth
She's had about a dozen husbands but the last one just pulled out
Now, who's gonna bring her dinner through the weary years ahead?
All she'll get from me is sympathy, ain't got time to see she's fed

I got two girls one's in heaven, one's below
One I love with all my heart and one I do not know

And now it's cold down on the bayou and they say it's in your mind
But my moccasins are treadin' ice leavin' strange designs
The Cajuns say the last time that this happened they weren't here
All Beaumont's full of penguins and I'm playin' it by ear

I got two girls one's in heaven, one's below
One I love with all my heart and one I do not know
I got two girls one's in heaven, one's below
One I love with all my heart and one I do not know
