Stop your pretending
Listen to what I've got to say
Now your head's went away
Only here for a day and that grave I just made
Is for me when I get paid, I get paid, yeah

Won't you wait a while, move to the blue
Sometimes people don't want to say
Old time dancers don't die that way
See that grave I've just made
It's for me when I get paid

Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you

Do you love and surrender?
Sometimes I don't feel I can remember
I think it's fair to mention, yeah
About the days when I get paid

Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you

I want a little loving, I told you all to listen
But you never liked what you heard
I take what I am given , this may sound absurd
I share a double vision that started the transition

Hey where's Jimmy Jazz
Steady on the scale

I told you to listen
Yes, I told you all to listen

Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you

Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you

Somebody's gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's gotta hold back the river

You know that somebody
You know that somebody
But it ain't you
