Who will save the river valley? That's my drinking water.
This was once a sacred place. Now look at what we've got here.
I'll pretend there isn't any problem, just do my job,
And if I don't like the standard of living, go move to Russia

Me and Pete went swimming last night. He's my friend from boy scouts.
All the fish were floating upright. We got scared, and we got out.

Mother says "Don't play down where your father does his job.
And though he's got to make living, or move to Russia..."


This is my world, this is my world, don't let it go away.
Is it a crime, spending my time, dreaming of yesterday?

Meet me in the river valley. You can tell me stories
'Bout a time before pinstripe suits, dippers, grits, and tories.

My mother sang the songs her mother taught her,
and we'd be swimming off in cool, cool water.
And when she'd call us from the yard...
running home it felt like God...

This is my world, don't take it away...

Is your favourite place controlled by developing ambitions?
Do you think you'll have some power signing a petition?
Are you fine with your surroundings? Are they gonna crumble?
I'm living in the river valley, come and join me for a tumble!

High up above, see the cars up on the viaduct.
From sunrise to the last call, they push their luck
and that would be fine,
if the world was yours, and you were mine

Who will save the river valley? (this is my world)
Who will save the river valley? (this is my world)
Who will save the river valley? (this is my world)

Who will save the river valley?
