I look when more Just about the riverbend Beyond the shore Where the gulls fly totally free Don"t know what for What I dream the day might sfinish Just around the riverbend For me Coming for me

I don"t know why I"m drifting here Past willow trees and waterfalls I need to go house and join the celebrating Have a handsome sturdy husband Who builds handsome sturdy wall surfaces And forobtain my dream that something"s waiting Just about the riverbend Just approximately the riverbend

I look when even more Just about the riverbfinish Beyond the shore Somewhere previous the sea Don"t understand what for Why do all my desires extend Just about the riverbend? Just about the riverbend

Should I choose the smoothest course Steady as the beating drum? Should I marry Kocoum? Is all my dreaming at an end? Or perform you still wait for me, Dream Giver Just roughly the riverbend?
