You’ve got your angel now
You’ve got your queen of hearts
You always said you wanted this
But this is hard
A girl’s a gift from God if you can hold her heart
Don’t you let her go; she’ll tear you apart

She’ll take you down to the river and throw you in, leave you when the sun goes down
Tell you that you could’ve been a real fine fellow if your daddy would’ve had the time
Leave you in the morning when the fog is forming on the Mississippi River bed
Well, you soon discover when you tell her that you love her that the girl you used to love is dead
She’ll take you down to the river and do it all over again

You’ve got your Ingrid Bergman
Oh you’ve got your girl
You always said you wanted this
But are you sure?
A girl’s a gift from God if you can hold her hand
Don’t you let her go; she won’t understand

She’ll take you down to the river and throw you in, leave you when the sun goes down
Tell you that you could’ve been a real fine fellow if your daddy would’ve had the time
Leave you in the morning when the fog is forming on the Mississippi River bed
Well, you soon discover when you tell her that you love her that the girl you used to love is dead
She’ll take you down to the river and do it all over again

Oh baby, I’m sorry
I never meant to treat you bad; I was in a hurry, honey
Oh baby, I won’t do it again
Oh baby, baby, I’m sorry

She’ll take you down to the river and throw you in, leave you when the sun goes down
Tell you that you could’ve been a real fine fellow if your daddy would’ve had the time
Leave you in the morning when the fog is forming on the Mississippi River bed
Well, you soon discover when you tell her that you love her that the girl you used to love is dead
She’ll take you down to the river and do it all over again

She’ll take you down to the river and throw you in, leave you when the sun goes down
Tell you that you could’ve been a real fine fellow if your daddy would’ve had the time
Leave you in the morning when the fog is forming on the Mississippi River bed
Well, you soon discover when you tell her that you love her that the girl you used to love is dead
She’ll take you down to the river and do it all over again
