Ride the river
Rivierreis (Nederlandse zingbare remake)
Floating down that old river, boy 1)
All my worries far behind
Floating down that old river, boy
Leave old memories way behind

Yesterday slowly fading
All my life I've been waiting for this time

Floating down that old river, boy
Leaves me feeling good inside
Floating down that old river, boy
Trying to get to the other side

Yesterday slowly fading
I've been waiting now forever for this ride.

Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river

Floating down that old river, boy
All my worries far behind
Floating down that old river, boy
Leave old memories way behind

Yesterday slowly fading
I've been waiting now forever for this ride

Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river

{music & lyrics fading out}
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river
Ride the river in this boat ride the river

1) that old river is the Styx
Drijvend op die aloude stroom
Al mijn zorgen achter mij
Drijvend op die aloude stroom
Oude beelden laat ik vrij
Gist'ren rustigaan vertrokken
Heel mijn leven bleef het lokken
Dit getij

Drijven op die aloude stroom
Voelt bijzonder goed voor mij
Drijvend op die aloude stroom
Ga ik nu naar de overzij
Gist'ren rustig weggegaan
Want ik wacht heel mijn bestaan
Al op die reis

Vaar de stroom in deze boot 1)
Vaar de stroom

Drijvend op die aloude stroom
Al mijn zorgen achter mij
Drijvend op die aloude stroom
Oude beelden laat ik vrij
Gisteren verdween ik zacht
'k heb een eeuwigheid gewacht
Op deze reis

1) de boot van veerman Charon
