"Rivers of Babylon" as written by Brent Dowe, James Agustus Mcnaughton, Frank Farian and George Reyam....
By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept
When he 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 out loud (oh hoo)
Sing the song of freedom, sister
Sing the song of freedom, brother (oh hoo, la la la la, oh hoo)

So, let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight
Oh, Fari

So, let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight
Oh, Fari (sing it, sing it, sing it, oh hoo)

We got to sing it together (oh hoo)
Everyone (oh hoo)
La la la la la

By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept
When he remembered Zion

'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?

'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 now sing it (oh hoo)
Sing the song of freedom brother
