"Rivers of Babylon" as written by George Reyam, Frank Farian, Brent Dowe and T Mcnaughton....
By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept
When he remembered Zion

But the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing King Alpha song in a strange land?
'Cause the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing King Alpha song in a strange land?

Sing it out loud
Sing a song of freedom, sister
Sing a song of freedom, brother

We gotta sing and shout it
We gotta jump and shout it
Shout the song of freedom now

So let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight, oh Far I
So let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight, oh Far I

Sing it again!
We've got to sing it together
We've got to shout it together

By the rivers of Babylon
Where we sat down
And there we wept
When we remembered Zion
Oh, the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing King Alpha's song in a strange land?

'Cause the wicked carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing King Alpha's song in a strange land?

Sing it, sing it, sing it
We've got to sing it, brother
We've got to sing it, sister
