By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down 
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion 
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down 
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion. 

When the wicked 
Carried us away in captivity 
Required from us a song 
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land 

When the wicked 
Carried us away in captivity 
Requiring of us a song 
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land 

Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart 
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight 
Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts 
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight 

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down 
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion 
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down 
Ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion. 

By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon) 
There we sat down (You got to sing a song) 
Ye-eah we wept, (Sing a song of love) 
When we remember Zion. (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah) 

By the rivers of Babylon (Rough bits of Babylon) 
There we sat down (You hear the people cry) 
Ye-eah we wept, (They need that power) 
When we remember Zion. (Ooh, have the power)
