THE RIVER There’s worry everywhere, close the door and turn the lock There's a virus in the air, it’s taking us all out The powerful and small dress in hospice gowns The emperor’s got new clothes – he’s looking like a clown We’re all getting scared The hen house has a fox Democracy was fair until the joker’s in the ballot box Go down to the river fill up your cup Try to love your neighbor - man I don’t make this shit up You want to live forever I think this is enough Go down to the river in need, go down to the river with me The market’s in a fall The bars are all closed down, An apocalyptic stall with our hearts all on the ground Mother nature cries - a warning to us all, the prudent and the wise, humbled by her call A little boy goes out unto the sun to play His sister comes along she’s standing six feet away Go down to the river fill up your cup Try to love your neighbor - man I don’t make this shit up You want to live forever I think this is enough Go down to the river in need, go down to the river with me
