The Great Sad River

Its a great sad river where we spend our days
We pass the hours as we float along
It brought us here, it takes us away
The great sad river flows on

The years are slowly turning round
The children come and the old ones go
The laughter echoes the tears fall down
To the great sad river below

On the great sad river of chance and change
We drift away when our time is through
I thank the stars I'm floating down
This great sad river with you

The water flows just one way down
Far away to a distant sea
No sail, no rudder, will you travel down
This great sad river with me
