A thousand faces
On a grey, grey day
A million houses
Under dull, dark sky

So much noise and
So little time
Oh river, run me dry

A natural world
With these strange men's votes
Go back home
And lock your door

So much noise and
So little time
Oh river, run me dry

River, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry

Those big palm trees
On an ocean breeze
Pico butter
And deep blue seas
A thousand miles
Of clear blue sky
Taking time to let it pass me by

An empty space
To my open door
A turning fan
On a wooden floor
Drift away
In the sweet sunshine
Welcome to this world of mine


Oh river, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry
Oh river, run me dry
