"Cool Water" as written by David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and Jerry Harrison....
(Three, four)

All day I face
The barren waste
Without the taste
Of water
Cool water

Old Dan and I
With throats burned dry
And souls that cry
Cool water
Cool clear water

Keep a-movin', Dan
Don't you listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burnin' sand
With water

Dan, don't you see
That big green tree
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me
And you

Shadows sway
They seem to say
Tonight, we'll pray
For water
Cool water

Way up there
You'll hear our prayer
And show us where
There's water
Cool clear water

So keep a-movin', Dan
Don't you listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burnin' sand
With water

Dan, don't you see
That big green tree
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for me
And you

All day I face
The barren waste
Without the taste
Of water
Cool clear water

Cool clear water
