There's a house across the river, but alas. I cannot swim
And a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin
There's a house across the river, but alas, I cannot swim
I'll live my life regretting that I never jumped in.

There's a boy across the river with short black curly hair,
He wants to be my lover and I want to be his peer,
There's a boy across the river but alas, I cannot swim,
And I never will get to put my arms around him.

There's a life across the river that was meant for me,
Instead I live my life in constant misery.
There's a life across the river but I do not see
Why I should please those that will never be pleased.

There is gold across the river but I don't want none (x2)

Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun (x2)

There is gold across the river but I don't want none
I would rather be dry than held up by a golden gun

Saying 'work more and more' / live more, have more fun. (x3)
