lyrics

Water, water, dark and deep
Tell me where the fishes sleep
Beyond, beyond
Alas, alack
Beyond.

Water, water, deep and wise
Tell me where your future lies
Beyond, beyond
Alas, alack…

I watch the cold turn rain to snow
As spring has coaxed the ice to flow
So flow, river
Purge the Earth of winter’s binge.
Flow, river
Toss the stones and guide the fins.

Ah na na hey

Na na hey hey
River rising up and away, yeah yeah
Oceans take a trip in the sky
Na na hey hey
Water drops to meet with the water, yeah yeah
Rain it falls and joins the

Flow, river
Purge the Earth of summer’s binge
Flow, river
To the oceans, live therein…

Water, water, wise and slow
Tell us where our lives will flow
Beyond, beyond
Alas, alack…
