BEAUTIFUL SOUTH


The River Lyrics

Love takes time we all agree
And time's not the easiest to cheat
The water changes one degree
When will the shiver of this river turn to sea

The river does no good, no harm
Tempts us like pirates to it's calm
A lover's shanty, devil's psalm
Goddamn this river and it's shiver and it's charm

If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead

Our lives go bounding down the stream
When will we realise minnow dreams?
The frustration eating you and me
Our only wish to be the fish that meets the sea

We cannot tell a he or she
But us fish can tell a we
We know the seed we know the tree
When will my conker conquer thee?

If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead

The cheaper woman and myself
We've both got ladders in our tights
When you've been left on the top shelf
You've got those ladders in your sights

If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead

The cheaper woman and myself
We've both got ladders in our tights
When you've been left on the top shelf
You've got those ladders in your sights

You've got those ladders in your sights
You've got those ladders in your sights
You've got those ladders in your sights
You've got those ladders in your sights
