“I’ve got a river for a wife
And the soul of all mankind/
I’ve got a river for a wife”

“Hurry up” he screams, from the shivers of his boat
And he says “you’re the first who came smiling by the shore
With no coins and no love” – still he howls me:
“I’m telling you for the last time, I’m coming back again”

“And the soul of all mankind
I’ve got a river for a wife boy
And the soul of all mankind/
I’ve got a river for a wife”

“Step inside” he moans “you will never be so lonely
Like me you’ll wait closely by the open door
And hear the steps of time creeping gently to your side
Maybe then you’ll know why I scream it loud”

I’ve got a river for a wife boy
And the soul of all mankind
I’ve got a river for a wife
I’ve got a river for a wife boy
And the soul of all mankind/
I’ve got a river for a wife

I’ve got a river for a wife boy
And the soul of all mankind
I’ve got a river for a wife
