The Royal Queen of the River


Yes… I knew the Queen; she stood out from all the rest

She wasn’t upper class, but what she offered was the best.


She courted and she cherished, every man she knew;

Those Noblemen and Gamblers, and a Statesman or two.


She was a beauty on the river, yes… I knew the Queen;

Though squat and broad, she was a sight to be seen.


She required more support, than the average of her kind,

What caused men to adore her, was the action of her behind.


She was swift as a sturgeon, when there was need to be,

Yes… I knew the Queen, she even courted me.


She was well stacked; and able to put on a show.

She could belch louder than many men, you might chance to know.


Alas, her time was abrupt; and while her girls picked up the pace,

Divesting men of their money, she went down in disgrace


The night she hit rock bottom, a storm caught her by surprise,

With her paddle wheel still churning', she disappeared before my eyes.


‘Twas a sad sight to witness; her memories still bring a shiver.

I’m proud to let you know, she was the finest on the River.


I knew the River Queen; she was a beauty for her size;

She remains in my heart, though ‘neath the Mississippi she now lies.
