Up a lazy river where the old mill run
Meets a lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger in the shade of a kind ole tree
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, how happy we can be
Oh, oh river with me

Up a lazy river where the old mill run
Meets a lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger in the shade of a kind ole tree
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, how happy we can be
Yeah, river
Lazy river, lazy river, lazy river

Up a lazy river where the old mill run
Meets a lazy river in the noon day sun
And linger in the shade of a kind ole tree
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, umm, crazy
River, lazy river, lazy river, lazy river

And up a lazy river where the old mill run
Meets a lazy river in the noon day sun
And you linger in the shade of a kind ole tree
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
River, it's crazy, lazy river
Lazy river, crazy river, lazy river

Up a lazy river where the old mill run
Meets a lazy river in the noon day sun
And you linger in the shade of a kind ole tree
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
The river, crazy, lazy river
River, crazy, lazy river, boy
Up a lazy river
River, river, ooh boy
River, river, river, river
And you throw away your troubles, dream a dream with me

Up a lazy river where the Robin's song
Awakes a bright new morning you can loaf along
Blue skies up above and everyone's in love
Lazy, the river, crazy, lazy
River, it's crazy
Crazy the river
Up a lazy river with me
