I made a sideways motion 
Turning a new leaf 
The single minded miner's girl 
Was there to share my grief 
I shivered in the butter wind 
Three times the cockerel crowed 
I waited for the river 
But the river did not flow. 

An autumn turned to silver 
Winter turned to gold 
The weatherman said dress up 
Oh but I did not feel the cold 
Kids waited with toboggans 
As I sheltered from the snow 
I waited for the river 
But the river did not flow. 

I will drink the milk from you breasts 
Meld myself to you 
Collect the valley lilies 
The worshippers once strew 
My body aches with hunger 
Yet your belly has to grow 
I waited for the river 
But the river did not flow
