"At the River" as written by and Andrew Derek/findlay Cocup....
If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes
If you're fond of sand dunes
If you're fond of sand dunes
If you're fond of sand dunes

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
Quaint little villages here and there.

    General CommentThe vocals are a sample from a late-50s pop song called "Old Cape Cod" (nothing to do with a river!) recorded by multi-track legend Patti Page - she was one of the first artists to record all her own backing vocals. The first two verses go:

    If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air,
    Quaint little villages here and there,
    You’re sure to fall in love with
    Old Cape Cod.

    If you like the taste of a lobster stew,
    Served by a window with an ocean view,
    You’re sure to fall in love with
    Old Cape Cod.

    So now you know. Mmmm. Lobster stew...

    General CommentThe guys and me used to go out the pub at lunch on college days and stay there... lazy afternoons, drinking, sometimes not going back to college after all...

    This song used to play at said pub, and... well, it makes me happy thinking of those good times, particularly as we've all drifted apart now.

    General CommentIsn't it "salty air"? That would make it rhyme... and more sense.

    General Commenti love the trumpets in this song. and the fact that its so short and leaves you guessing the next lyric is amazing. its an incomplete sentence, almost suggesting to your imagination to run with it and think of everything that is possible at the river.
