Love takes time we all agree
And time's not the easist to cheat
The water changes one degree
When will the shiver of this river turn to sea ?
The river does no good, no harm
Tempts us like pirates to its charm
Goddamn this river and its shiver and its charm

If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead

Our lives go bounding down the stream
When will we realise minnow dreams
The frustration eating you and me
Our only wish to be the fish that meets the sea
We cannot tell a he or she
But us fish can tell a we
We know the seed, we know the tree
When will my conker conquer thee

If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead
The cheaper woman and myself
We've both got ladders in our tights
When you've been left on the top shelf
You've got those ladders in your sights
