(Don't trouble the water)
I won't
(Give it up)
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
Um hum
(Still water run deep, yes it do)
I know that
(Whoa yeah)
Yeah, if you only believe

(Don't trouble the water)
Said I wouldn't
(Give it up)
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
Umm
(Still water run deep)
Yes it do
(Yes it do whoa oh ho yeah)
If you only believe

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evenin' falls
Somehow I will comfort you

I'll take the bow
Whoa when darkness comes
And [incomprehensible] your love around
Just like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
(Like a bridge)
Just like a bridge
(Over troubled)
Over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver moon
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All of your dreams are on their way
(See how they shine?)

Ooh and if you ever need a friend
(Need a friend)
Look around and sailing by
Just like a bridge over troubled water
I'll be there to lay me down
(Like a bridge)
Like a bridge over
(Troubled water)
Troubled water
I will lay me down
Ooh, I'll be your bridge
Yes I will

(Don't trouble the water)
Said I wouldn't
(Give it up)
Well
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
Uh huh
(Still water run deep)
I know that
(Yes it do)
Yeah
(Oh yeah)

Still the water
(Don't trouble the water)
Yeah
(Give it up, why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
Talkin' 'bout still water
(Still water run deep)
You know they run deep
(Yes it do)
Uh huh
(Oh yeah)

Well I'm gonna be your bridge yeah
(Don't trouble the water)
The troubled water
(Give it up)
Oh
(Why don't you, why don't you, let it be?)
Come on come on
Walk out on me
(Still water run deep)
Oh
(Yes it do)
