Hanging Trout Fancying Grandmothers

I dropped it down the wishing well [asdf]

(Tell us again, tell us again) [Roland]

It made a sound like a funeral bell [Beefy]

A mile or two before morning [loaf]

You peered into the murky deep [Grayman]

(Tell us again, tell us again) [(trad)]

Until you tumbled fast asleep [loaf]

Ignoring your nightmare's warning [asdf]

Pretending not to hear the splash [loaf]

(Of what again? Of what again?) [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

I turned away, to claim the cash [loaf]

for perjury, suborning [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

But when they heard they eerie cries [Beefy]

(Of what again? Of what again?) [(trad)]

They saw right through my puny lies [Beefy]

And rent mine ears with scorning [loaf]
