Stop your pretending
Listen to what I gotta say
Now your head?s ran away
Only here for a day
And that grave I?ve just made
For me when I get paid, hey
I get paid, yeah

Won?t you wait a while
Move to the blue
Sometimes people don?t wanna say
Old time dancers don?t die die that way
See that grave I?ve just made
It?s for me when I get paid

Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you, yeah
Somebody but you, yeah

Do you love and surrender
Sometimes I don?t feel I can remember
And I think it?s fair to mention, yeah
About the days when I get paid

Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you, yeah

Yeah, yeah

Want a little loving
I told you all to listen
But you never liked what you heard, yeah
I take what I am given
It may sound absurd
I stare with double vision
Starting the transition, yeah yeah
Now baby, hey

Hey where?s Jimmy Jazz
Steady on the scale

I told you to listen
Yes I told you to listen

Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody gotta hold back the river
You know that somebody, yeah
You know that somebody
Somebody ain?t you
